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 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.

You know it's bad when a caper comedy makes you long for the Goldie Hawn-Chevy Chase showcases of yore...

Aniston doesn't bring her old A-game to this. But at least she's not quiet and reserved and no-energy, her approach to too many roles of late.

Lots of hammy faces, hollow jokes and property damage do not a farce make

The Bounty Hunter marks a new low and a new genre: the bail-bondage rom-com.

Even by the low standards of today's romantic comedy, this is a black mark on everyone's resume.

This is premium-grade convoluted Hollywood rubbish.

I stared with glazed eyes at The Bounty Hunter. Here is a film with no need to exist.

The putrid result never rises even to the lofty heights of mediocrity.

The sad thing is good romantic comedies are on the endangered species list. The Bounty Hunter proves the point.

This is that category of movie that exists to be perpetually playing on airplanes. When the pilot interrupts to tell you to look out the window you won't miss anything.

This genre has devolved to the point where what I appreciate most, in the end, is simply not cringing.

Neither explosive enough for lovers of action, soppy enough for those who want romance, or funny enough for comedy fans, this is a film that inhabits some kind of movie limbo.

The blend of romantic comedy and road movie is an awkward match, and isn't helped by a stodgy script and the fact that Butler has little in the way of comic timing.

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

Not so much a comedy thriller as a case of arrested development.

Given the amount of Botox on display, would a little Viagra have hurt?

The lame finale makes a TV crime show look like something construed by Stephen Hawking. If Hawking could explain why this waste of time was ever greenlit, we might find a reason to understand the universe once again.
