Action Comedy Romantic - This is a romantic comedy whose action elements may give it more
male appeal than usual. Fans of stars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard
Butler should be pleased. Some violent content and constant
language make the film inappropriate for young children.
PROFANITY: Over 30 S-words, 7 GD's, many others. SEX/NUDITY: Briefly seen sexy dancing by bikini-clad dancers. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings, falls. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Numerous chases; some gunplay. COMEDY: Constant banter; some physical gags.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 144 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from both males and females. A very high percentage absolutely loved "The Bounty Hunter." Most of the rest enjoyed it very much. Also important is that no one disliked it. The lowest reviews are "Good/Average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Same as "TEENS" above.
ADULTS:The males and females rated "The Bounty Hunter" almost identical. Unfortunately, the reviews are mediocre. There are too few very high reviews and too many average and below average reviews. This indicates a movie that most enjoyed but few loved.
Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler), a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly (Jennifer Aniston). He thinks all that's ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other – until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honor and obey was tough – staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher.
