amd: ass monkey


I watched "Bandidas" on DVD this week. Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek star in it as spunky Mexican beauties who become bank robbers to strike back at the sinister American bank that's stealing land to build the railroads. It was great to see Penelope and Salma starring together as they have great on-screen chemistry. The comic and adventure moments are good fun, but the Luc Besson script definitely stumbles when it tries to be anything deeper than just a lighthearted romp. Steve Zahn guest stars as a wacky turn-of-the-century CSI detective and Sam Shepard has a very minor role as the ladies' guru of crime.
