Salma Hayek's Four Funniest Moments!

This weekend, Salma Hayek-Pinault costars in the family movie Grown Ups, as the uptight clothes designer wife of Adam Sandler, one of five childhood friends who reunite for a weekend in a lakeside cabin. Salma looks amazing and she plays the ice queen very well, but we couldn’t help but leave the theater less than satisfied.

Why were we left wanting more? Because Salma Hayek utters exactly ONE funny line in the whole movie! Granted, it was a good one (“That was a man’s ass?” she asks, as David Spade’s character climbs the stairs sin pantalones), but what a waste! Why cast Salma—who has proved both on the big screen and on TV that she can create funny moments—and then underuse her? Didn’t the casting directors see our four favorite comedic moments below?
