A somewhat disappointing western adventure, pretty much written for real life friends Cruz and Hayek, who are at least really nice on the eyes. The script, on… More

Great film, really cute and funny. Although the characters decided to start robbing banks without a second thought. Both Cruz and Hayek are stunning and make… More
