Set in Los Angeles in the 1930s, 'Bad Boy' Colin Farrell plays an Italian writer who dreams of writing the top selling romance novel. Camilla (Salma Hayek) is the Mexican waitress he meets. She hopes to marry an American. He fantasizes of blue-eyed blondes. They get on each other's nerves but still ending up falling in love.

Salma Hayek sizzles on screen as the feisty Mexican. Looking more than a decade younger than her age (40), she is smart and sexy. Collin Farrell on the other hand, is... em... bland. Yes, pasta doesn't go too well with hot salsa either.

Expect some beautiful cinematography, interesting dialogues, and scenes where the two hot leads frolic naked in the waves of Pacific. That may be the only reason you want to catch the movie. The other love making scene is unfortunately, cut.

When two impossible people fall in love, you know the ending. Two famous leads acting in a cliché melodrama? Korean scriptwriters can do better.
