Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz have never been sexier as they team up for this hilarious, action-packed western! Determined to avenge the deaths of their fathers, Sara Sandoval (Hayek) and Maria Alvarez (Cruz) vow to seize the ill-gotten gains of robber baron Tyler Jackson (Dwight Yoakam). So, with help from a retired bank robber (Sam Shepard) and a jittery criminologist (Steve Zahn), these two beauties become unlikely outlaws, blazing a trail of larceny and laughter across Mexico!
First screened in Europe and scheduled for limited release in the U.S., Bandidas can now be viewed by all fans of the visually stunning duo, Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek. Set in Mexico 1888, Bandidas is a Western spoof about two women, Maria Alvarez (Penelope Cruz) and Sara Sandoval (Salma Hayek), who seek to avenge the tragedies befallen both their fathers under robber baron, Tyler Jackson (Dwight Yoakam). Jackson, employed by the Bank of New York, is sent to Mexico to buy land and open banks to the detriment of local culture. Jackson kills Sara's corrupt father, Don Diego, while bandits burn down Maria's home. The two ladies band together for the community's cause. Under the tutelage of Bill Buck (Sam Sheperd), Sara and Maria develop bank robbery skills. When criminologist, Quentin Cooke (Steve Zahn), hunts them, they convert him with their strong moral sense and good looks. Like any Thelma and Louise-ish tale of women who take charge, Maria and Sara are foil characters who eventually become an invincible, sisterly team. This comedy is built around their bickering. For Sara, with European education and penchant of designer clothing, Maria is a hick who lacks refinement, yet Maria, horse whisperer, can fire a gun. The slapstick is overkill, for example when Sara wonders whether a bandana is Gucci or Prada. However, viewers will love Penelope Cruz on horseback and the two actresses practice-kissing their foe in a brothel. Bandidas is a light film with some laughs and mucho sex appeal. -- Trinie Dalton

after someone decides to take over there ranches illegally,
neither of them know how to rob banks, in fact one even gets the hiccups when she is nervous,
so they end up going to the pastor of the mexico and he tells the two women who might be able to help them learn
a thing or two about robbing banks to save the ranch's and there land!
anyway the 2 women go to this man for help, he makes them do things they have done before and, they decide
it has nothing to do with helping them, but later, they do learn to work together and the man tells them, he knew they were ready
but he liked there company.
so they go on by themselves and rob banks and do some weird things and they get revenge for there fathers
with the help of a specialist they came to the wild west from new York that learned scientific things like finger printing
in the end the two women learn from the specialist and get pay back for there country of mexico! if you never seen salma hayek and Penelope Cruz act together, , here is your chance, they are funny ! you will get a good belly laugh and you will see Dwight yoakem like you never have before
this movie is a oldie, but a goldie, you will not be sorry you watch it!!!
and I believe they should make more movies together.
