Genre: Action Comedy
Director Anne Fletcher has churned out a silly and senseless movie, namely her latest offering Hot Pursuit, which sounds almost akin to a Bollywoodian caper. Besides she is highly and heavily inspired by an old Hollywood blockbuster movie namely Thelma & Louise.
Plot: Officer Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) is stuck working in the evidence room after overreacting and accidentally setting an innocent civilian on fire. A drug kingpin is on trial and a key witness needs to be escorted to Dallas. His wife is accompanying him and laws require a female escort. There’s a double – cross at the pick – up and that’s when Mrs Riva (Sofia Vergara) and Cooper run for their lives in a snazzy convertible.
Aces: The action & chase sequences are quite thrilling.
Minuses: The irrational directional skills of director Anne Fletcher and an absolutely badly hammed performances of the over the hills lead actor Reese Witherspoon topped with a can’t – act – for – nuts Sofia Vergara.
Last Word: A strictly avoidable fare.
