The plot was so contrived and flat, if it wasn't for the sheer magnetic
attraction of the two leads, I'm sure I wouldn't have finished it. Yes
- Salma and Penelope are nice eye candy, but that in and of itself is
not a reason to make a movie. I would have preferred they wait until a
proper script was available and shoot a interesting film with three

a termite farm. Of the two, I have to say Penelope edged out Salma with
charm and an interesting character, but its like being the last one to
drown on a sinking ship.
What I'm hoping for the future is that producers don't say "oh. well
we've already done a movie with Penelope and Salma." and discard the
