Excerpt: As cold and calculating as the heart of a Hollywood accountant, The Bounty Hunter is the caper comedy that keeps on taking. I've already given it nearly two irretrievable hours, and here I am again, facing the sucking void of the contemporary mainstream romantic comedy and trying to hold onto my pocket change and what's left of my dignity.
Excerpt: Milo (Gerard Butler) and Nicole (Jennifer Aniston) sure are lucky. They’re ex-husband and wife, Milo now a bounty hunter paid to bring in Nicole for a failure to appear, but they are also being chased by bookies and some villains out to cover-up a suicide. That’s a lot to deal with, but it so happens during a chase, they come across the Cupid Cabin, their honeymoon spot. Could their slowly rekindling relationship take a turn for the better here?
Conclusion: I feel wronged right now. I captured and scolded a horrible criminal, yet not only am I not collecting a few thousand dollars, the wrongdoer is still going to be released upon the public. Sure, it's unrealistic to think Sony would bury every existing copy of 'The Bounty Hunter,' but they probably should have at least considered it. That should sum up my feelings on this film.
Excerpt: Milo Boyd, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly. He thinks all that's ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other - until they find themselves on the run for their lives.
Excerpt: The Film Romantic comedies either work or they fall flat. In the case of latter it is usually because someone decides that high concept is the way to go. This certainly explains The Bounty Hunter , which features Gerard Butler as a cop turned title profession, who has a simple task: bring in his ex-wife (Jennifer Aniston) who has skipped bail. See, right there you have a really simple concept that could make for a predictable but enjoyable romp.
Excerpt: The Bounty Hunter mostly wants to be Mr. And Mrs. Smith , a questionable goal it fails at miserably, but it’s in the rare moments it tries to be State Of Play that it truly becomes unwatchable. It’s like screenwriter Sarah Thorp tried to paraphrase the cliff notes of You’ve Got Mail in between season five episodes of The Wire and YouTube clips of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth Chapman arguing about how many minutes it’s been since he had his last cigarette.
Excerpt: Based on the onscreen evidence, not a single person in front of or behind the camera cared a whit about how The Bounty Hunter turned out. Director Andy Tennant and his two stars, Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, are all battle-tested veterans of forgettable romantic comedies: Tennant is responsible for Fools Rush In , Sweet Home Alabama , Hitch , and Fool’s Gold ; Butler played creeps of different flavors in P.S.
Excerpt: Nee… Ook al was ik zondagavond erg moe na drie dagen filmen en had ik echt ‘n simpele film nodig, ik ben The Bounty Hunter alweer vergeten. Maar on a positive note: ik heb me dus ook niet genoeg geërgerd om me dát nog te herinneren, en ik ben niet in slaap gevallen. How’s that for a positive review?
Summary: Milo är en prisjägare som får i uppdrag att jaga sin före detta fru Nicole, som smitit från borgen. Parets återträff blir allt annat än en trevlig date och Nicoles chans att avslöja polisens inblandning i ett mord gör inte det hela lättare.
