doing the following:

file vlc-1.1.3-intel.dmg
vlc-1.1.3-intel.dmg:     bzip2 compressed data, block size = 100k

showed me it was bzip2 format. So I did the bunzip on the file and now I 
get this:
vlc-1.1.3-intel.dmg.out: Apple Partition data block size: 512, first 
type: Apple_partition_map, name: Apple, number of blocks: 63, second 
type: Apple_HFS, name: disk image, number of blocks: 190960,


The command: mount -t hfsplus -o loop vlc-1.1.3-intel.dmg.out /mnt/hfs

actually worked.
