Penelope CruzTo the legions of movie-goers who have long dreamed (many of them wetly) of a movie starring Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, it's really not going to matter that Bandidas could well be really, really bad. What they're much more likely to notice in the trailer is the prominence of boobs, catfights, and kissing - I'm guessing the complaints will be few. Based on said trailer, it appears that Bandidas is about two women (one of them rich and hot, the other poor and hot) in turn of the century Mexico who get over their difference to become a crack bank-robbing team. Their weapons? Tremendous skill with guns, knives, and kissing. (Not too surprisingly, there seems to be a lot of emphasis on the third element in their arsenal.)

It looks horribly cheesy, but possibly fun, even for chicks. But then again, I have a weird Penelope Cruz obsession and love Dwight Yoakam, who also shows up in the movie from time to time, so I might not be the best test audience. The movie's due for release in the US in early February.
