Another comedy! Yay for me!
The Bounty Hunter aims to please; with 2 good looking leads, a smatter of lame & original jokes plus a whole lot of banter of sparring spouses with sleuth work that makes up for 1 hr and 50mins of brainless entertainment.
Admittedly, it has a tangled storyline that is madcap and UN- delightful. And throughout the show, my eyes were glued mostly to Jennifer’s legs. She really has the pins I tell you…
Toned, smooth & slim. I swear I’m running again every morning after this….
Here’s what the plot of The Bounty Hunter is:
Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler) is an ex-police officer now working as a bounty hunter. His ex-wife Nicole (Jennifer Aniston), a busy career girl journalist inexplicably obsessed with a recent suicide, misses her court date because a local bartender/ informant vaguely tells her he has information about the case she‘s working on. This missed court date prompts her bail bondsman (Jeff Garlin) to send her ex-husband after her, which is pretty convenient for Milo since a rogue bounty hunter is after him because of gambling debts he’s accrued.
Nicole’s famous singer mother Kitty (Christine Baranski – she’s the only watchable character in this movie) tells Milo Nicole is in Atlantic City; so, he follows, followed closely by a lovestruck coworker of Nicole’s (Jason Sudeikis) who is mistakenly followed by rogue bounty hunters who mistakenly think he’s Milo.
They’re followed by Earl (Redfoot from The Usual Suspects), a tattoo artist and former police officer who has kidnapped the local bartender/ informant. Milo and Nicole play craps at a local casino, a bad move considering Milo’s gambling problem. He gets tasered; she steals a rickshaw; illogical timewasters ensue. They remain out of love as they romp through tired, clichéd schemes until falling back in love with reckless abandon.
Scruffy, huggable & so likeable Gerald Butler….too bad about the thin plot. He is a good actor.
