Hot Pursuit (2015)

hot_pursuit_ver2

An uptight and by-the-book cop tries to protect the outgoing widow of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen. (IMDb)

Like most buddy cop/odd couple comedies, this one has a forgettable plot and shallow characters, but unfortunately, it’s never really funny enough to make up for it. Aside from a few good gags (see the increasing age/decreasing height of the ongoing news reports; the chatty Cooper on cocaine; the wild tourist bus ride), the humour is mostly just mediocre slapstick and Witherspoon and Vergara hamming up their tiresome and stereotypical caricatures (sexy, loud Latina; uptight, insecure cop).

5.4/10

  1. Oh, this movie was so bad. I gave it a 1.9 Out of 5. It was bland, stupid, and boring. I like both actresses and its a shame that they were reduced to stereotypical caricatures. This was # 2 on my “Worst Movies of 2015”
