The Bounty Hunter - DVD Review


Starring Jennifer Aniston, Gerard Butler, Jason Sudeikis, Christine Baranski, Cathy Moriarty, Peter Greene, Jeff Garlin and Dorian Missick.
Directed by Andy Tennant.

Saw this a while ago but haven't found much energy to review it. It's not terrible but it's not good. It's very formula, and the "they-hate-each-other-til-they-love-each-other" arc wasn't believable to me. The scene that sums it up for me is when Gerard Butler, as a bounty hunter, is chasing a guy across a gold course. He runs into the driving range. Do the people stop? No, each one hits their balls as he gets it front of them, as not one golfer notices there's a guy out there running. Several actors show up to get their Supporting Player paydays before going back to their more fulfilling work on TV, like Christine Baranski (The Good Wife) and Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
