Movie Info

Hapless bounty hunter Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler) jumps for joy at the prospect of tracking down his bail-skipping ex-wife, Nicole Hurley (Jennifer Aniston), but gets a hard dose of reality when the job proves tougher than anticipated. Every time Milo gets close to resourceful reporter Nicole, she gives him the slip. A high-profile murder has been committed, and Nicole is determined to stay out of jail long enough to crack the case. And she must be getting close, because now someone is trying to

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.

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.

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.

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

This awkward hybrid of action comedy and romantic comedy was hatched in the marketing department, not conceived by storytellers.

It's becoming increasingly clear that Gerard Butler should probably stay as far away from the romcom genre as possible...

The Bounty Hunter has already been done before and better. It was called Midnight Run.

I don't just hand out zeroes becuase I'm having a bad day. I really tried to like this movie. But it's one of the most boring, awful films so far in 2010.

Aniston's comic gifts haven't deserted her, but her judgment may have.

The Bounty Hunter is the rom-com equivalent of magnolia paint. Bland, bland, bland.

The Bounty Hunter is supposed to be a romantic comedy-action movie hybrid - Hepburn and Tracy in Midnight Run - but it fails all genre requirements.

There isn't a surprise to be had. There isn't a moment that isn't telegraphed. There isn't a time when you couldn't toss some tea leaves and, regardless of your skills in that specialized area, know exactly what's coming next.

The movie breaks out the usual clichés of the genre ... There is absolutely no chemistry on screen between Butler and Aniston, and the movie is utterly forgettable

It's a little sad that in 2010 we still have dated films like this, but some movies are just 'critic proof' comfort food. You know exactly what you are going to get and that's what you pay for.
