Even considered as no more than an assembly-line Hollywood product, The Bounty Hunter falls well below factory standards.
March 24, 2010
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.

March 19, 2010
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.

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.

March 19, 2010
The latest evidence that, when it comes to romantic combat, we live in a more thoughtlessly brutal age than our ancestors did.

At points, the film sinks below the level of competent: A stupid plot trick early on is so badly edited that it takes another minute to figure out what's supposed to be going on.

...plays less like a genuine story than as a series of 'beats' engineered for the cheapest possible audience responses.

There are two parallel stories: Milo's and Nicole's on-again, off-again relationship, and those guys with guns who keep shooting at them. We know exactly how the first one is going to end and we don't care about the second.

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

Someday, The Bounty Hunter and last month's Cop Out will be featured in a cable movie double bill as the two worst 1988 films of 2010.

The filmmakers clearly believe that their tangled storyline is madcap and delightful, but each new complication just serves to make us feel as though the blessed end of the movie is creeping further and further away.

March 19, 2010
A so-so movie that confuses loving closeups of Aniston's golden highlights with a character, and stripped-to-the-six-pack shots of Butler with a plot.

March 18, 2010
Aniston and Butler can't seem to muster any believable chemistry. A lot of mugging happens, but no magic.
March 18, 2010
When it comes to Aniston, maybe it's simply time to settle and stop asking her to be The Good Girl anymore -- perky just might be as good as it gets.

Aniston isn't the world's greatest actress, but the main reason The Bounty Hunter stinks is the script.

Butler...is stuck here playing kind of a jerk, so it's hard for him and Aniston to work up much chemistry, particularly as she's busy racing from the law in a pencil skirt and heels (easily the movie's most impressive stunt).

Tennant aims for a contemporary version of The Thin Man, wedding the banter of sparring spouses with sleuth work. To say that he falls short of the mark is understatement.

Does Columbia Pictures know that a reality-television program with a similar name already exists on A&E? Is it wrong to find that show funnier and more romantic?

Note to Jennifer Aniston: stop playing with your hair! That's not acting, it's playing with your hair.

Based on the onscreen evidence, not a single person in front of or behind the camera cared a whit about how The Bounty Hunter turned out.

Yes, it's every bit as brainless as the trailers suggest.

Perhaps tracking down the folks responsible for this film should be Milo's next assignment.

March 18, 2010
Inexplicably, Butler continues to get work in romantic comedies despite his limited range and boorish persona.

On the soundtrack, Jerry Reed sings "She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)." Viewers will know exactly the same feeling.
March 18, 2010
This genre has devolved to the point where what I appreciate most, in the end, is simply not cringing.

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

As formula films go, The Bounty Hunter is more enjoyable than most, even if it packs in as many cliches as any.

March 17, 2010
In The Bounty Hunter, the couple that foils a bunch of tiresome grade-C thriller goons together stays together. Whether or not that's a recipe for love, it's certainly not a formula for romantic-comedy magic.

There are no rewards to be claimed for enduring The Bounty Hunter.
March 17, 2010
The Bounty Hunter has little to offer besides some face-time with handsome stars.
March 17, 2010
Silliness prevails in this lame thriller comedy.
March 17, 2010
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.
