Not Cowgirls

I have no doubt that Bandidas is going to be an entertaining movie; what's better than prime Hispanic eye candy engaged in a mindless shoot 'em up in turn-of-the-Century Mexico? Even though I'll probably get the DVD, I can't help but wonder if this isn't part of a progressive Hollywood blitz to romanticize illegal immigration in the US.
Plot Outline: In turn-of-the-century Mexico, two very different women become a bank-robbing duo in an effort to combat a ruthless enforcer terrorizing their town.
These women are driven to commit crime by corrupt Mexican they're the glamorous protagonists a la Billy the Kidd, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Jesse James. Illegal aliens are driven to invade the US by corruption and economic oppression at home, painted by the progressive Hollywood elite as heroically braving the deprivations of our frontier to take the "jobs no American will do" so they can feed their families and live a better life than they could back home. These "jobs no American will do" include drug and human trafficking, leeching from our welfare and healthcare system, and a long list of misdemeanors and felonies committed by illegals every day...but the Progressive Left sorta glosses over that aspect.

Of course, I might be reading too much into this, especially if this is just a case of Selma and Penelope deciding to play meaty roles where they're more than just exotic ornamentation. I mean, I'll know I'm right when Hollyweird casts Erik Estrada as a migrant agricultural worker who rescues a baby from a burning building, then discovers that a blend of grape leaves and artichoke hearts is an efficant recipe for an herbal AIDS cure.

    I can take or leave Penelope, but Selma is the hottest thing on two (perfect) legs!!!
