Review

Our Score
This knockabout comedy from Hitch director Andy Tennant tries to tick too many boxes - thriller, romance, farce - and tends to rely on the radiant star power of Jennifer Aniston to distract viewers from its shortcomings. Cop-turned-bounty hunter Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler) is assigned to track down his bail-jumping reporter ex-wife Nicole (Aniston), but gets sucked into a story she's working on about the police cover-up of a murder. As the couple bicker their way across New Jersey, they are in turn pursued by crooked detectives who fear the feisty Nicole is getting too close to the truth, and the bumbling bookies to whom Milo owes thousands of dollars. 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. Aniston is charmingly spiky throughout, as is Christine Baranski as her mother, but the laughs are few and far between.

Concluded.
