Penelope Cruz is starring in the new movie The Counselor which was released this week. The movie has a star studded cast featuring Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender. We gave the the movie 3 out of 4 stars for its entertaining sadistic violence and automobile sex. Yes, that’s right, automobile sex. Cruz isn’t the one having sex with a car, that’s Cameron Diaz, but the movie does open with a sex scene featuring Penelope Cruz. That’s not a bad way to start a movie.
The movie is about a lawyer (played by Fassbender) who slowly gets involved with the Mexican drug cartels. As a bit of advice, never get involved with the Mexican drug cartels. EVER. It rarely works out in the end. We don’t want to give anything away about the movie, but we will say that things don’t go as planned for the counselor.
With the stars in this movie and a script written by Cormac McCarthy, there are several reasons to go see this movie. But Penelope Cruz might be our favorite reason.
