Hot Pursuit Reviews
As a film of modest ambitions Hot Pursuit is surprisingly entertaining. Yes the jokes and gags get a little repetitive, the plot is pretty formulaic and there is very little action and most of it is uninspired. The same is true of most action films, most of whom lack the solid lead performance that is there in this film.
It's a good thing this movie makes no remote hint of a pretense to take itself seriously because going by the gag reel at the end credits itself (yes, stick around for that) it's clear that the cast members themselves had more than a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments while shooting. The movie's humour rides on the random pairing of these two ladies.
The lack of good jokes are attempted to be padded on by very loud noises, both from the stars and the ensuing action they get embroiled in, and it becomes more irritating than fun. It's a train wreck from start to end, and it's not the least bit enjoyable.
Though the film is highly stereotyped and silly, Reese and Vergara will give you a few chuckles. Their chemistry is good. Hot Pursuit is the kind of a film which you can watch over a lazy weekend with your girlfriends.
