The Bounty Hunter (2010)



Critic Consensus: Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston remain as attractive as ever, but The Bounty Hunter's formula script doesn't know what to do with them -- or the audience's attention.

Critic Reviews for The Bounty Hunter

All Critics (159) | Top Critics (43)

Even considered as no more than an assembly-line Hollywood product, The Bounty Hunter falls well below factory standards.

If only the filmmakers could have made it less tedious and more entertaining, then we might have actually cared about the characters. In the end, "The Bounty Hunter" is a forgettable film that offers no reward.

Full Review… | October 1, 2012

It's one thing for the leads to not share believable romantic chemistry, and then there's the rather sad and lazy display Aniston and Butler put on here, not even striking believable negative vibes as a divorced couple.

Full Review… | April 8, 2012

As a lousy mystery and lousier romantic comedy, The Bounty Hunter is two bad films in one.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

An expensive, low-rent, overlong, tired romantic action-comedy.

Full Review… | October 16, 2010

The Bounty Hunter has what is arguably the most awful 'meet-cute' in the history of cinema.

Predictable, unfunny, terrible acting, there isn't a real reason to waste your time on this.

The Bounty Hunter was a painful and boring experience that I hope I must never endure again. The story is so boring and stupid, it starts as a romance then aaction film then espionage, I hated every minute of it. The cast was bad all expcept for Gerard Butler and Jason Sudakis, and Gerard proves he can be a funny guy with this movie. The jokes were horribly written and I did not laugh ONCE, I didnt giggle, smile, cheer or ect, it was just plain unfunny. I hated this movie with a passion, and even a couple of good cast members can't save this crappy romantic comedy.
