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.

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 take them both out. They may not have been able to make marriage work, but if Milo and Nicole can just stay alive long enough to solve the murder, they might discover they're not such a bad team after all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

All Critics (143) | Top Critics (38)

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

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

There'll be worse films released in 2010 -- but not many.

Time Out
Top Critic

The story of a bail enforcer who captures his newspaper-reporter ex-wife manages to be both formulaic and patchwork, with whatever twinkles that exist between the stars eclipsed by the overall crudeness.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

The film is stuffed with these idiosyncratic micro-roles (I loved Siobhan Fallon Hogan as the bondsman's secretary), which prove more diverting than the two main characters.

The latest evidence that, when it comes to romantic combat, we live in a more thoughtlessly brutal age than our ancestors did.

Audience Reviews for The Bounty Hunter


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.
