Three scene stealers together in one raunchy, hilarious shoot-em-up!

Salma Hayek is great as the Double D flaunting, gun-toting, wannabe mother and wife of Samuel Jackson. I'm usually not a fan of constant foul language but, in the context of this movie, it makes for some hilarious exchanges. Salma's delivery puts perpetually potty-mouthed Sam to shame. (We did turn on the Closed Captioning to keep up with her dialogue.) Ryan Reynold's counterpoint to the lovebird's lusty commentary highlights the intermittent gun battles and chase scenes. Their visiting his Triple A bodyguard dad in Tuscany came out of left field, with Morgan Freeman's performance somewhat hollow and off the mark. Still, a great over-the-top movie, with Salma Hayek leading the charge during this 90 minute escape from reality. Fun.
