Waste of talent
I was sucked into this movie by the promise of watching a film with two great actresses and Steve Zahn, who can be hysterical. I got sucked in despite everything my brain was telling me. And I should have listed to my brain.

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 dimensional characters instead of the wooden furniture in this dreck or 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 idea of doing a proper movie with their talent.

And don't get me started on anachronisms and stereotypes. Ugh.

Nothing to see here...move along, move along.
