What I'm seeing and reading.
Hmmm... For a while I was working on a theory that any movie that had Penelope Cruz in it sucked. I'm not a big fan of her, but I don't think she's terrible -- I just felt like every project she picked was crappy. At first I thought it was the "Americanization of Penelope" but Julie rented a putrid Euro flick about Penelope as a Beatles fan that was as bad as anything churned out in Hollywood. Might have to check Volver out after two recommendations in two weeks.
After looking up her filmography, I realized that I haven't seen much of her work. I did think that All About My Mother was a great film, though; of course, that's also Almodovar. Penelope Cruz did not play as large a role in that movie, if I recall correctly.
