Run far away from The Bounty Hunter ... Far.

Jennifer Aniston is looking a little tired these days.  Fortunately for her though, the attempted humour in her latest starring vehicle, The Bounty Hunter, is infinitely more unoriginal than she is, so you don’t necessarily notice her worry lines so much.

I don’t really blame her for worrying though.  There is no way she could have been making this movie and thinking it was actually going to turn out well.  I’m sure it sounded great when somebody pitched it to her.  It’s Aniston and romantic comedy hunk, Gerard Butler, playing exes on the run.  He, being the aforementioned bounty hunter, is giddily tracking down his ex because she skipped her court appearance for a traffic accident involving a police officer.  Before they know it, they’re mixed up in a major undercover police operation that could get them killed.  And, now this is the clincher, while they’re stuck together in this crazy impossible scenario, this old flame of theirs has the chance to be reignited again.  Clearly, with all this deliberate and obvious set up, hijinks should ensue.  Instead, scene after repetitive scene followed with not a trace of laughter to be had.

In order to catch a criminal, an effort must be made.  In order to entertain people at a movie, an equal effort must be made.  Between Butler barely trying to mask his accent and director, Andy Tennant, barely focusing on anything other than Aniston’s back side, it seems pretty fair to say that the only real effort being made in this film is Aniston running around in ridiculously high heels all the time.  I’m sure if she was wearing more sensible footwear, she would have ran right off the set.

I don't think you should bother. It doesn't warrant that much attention.

I read somewhere that this movie may just be a contender for worse movie of 2010.  And after reading your review, I can see why.  Thanks for sharing!  By the way, I added some info to the wiki to the right of the page.  Helps your readers out.  You can edit that yourself in the future by click on the pencil icon ;)

This definitely has a great chance of taking the crown though. So far, this year has provided plenty of options!

Jennifer Aniston is HOT...But This Movie Is NOT!
How can one review a movie when one already knows that the movie is going to be bad? Well, I always go in with no expectations and I usually allow a movie to instill my emotions. Such is the case when I gave “The Bounty Hunter” a rent. I know it was going to be a mediocre watch at best (it bombed in the box-office), but since I think Jennifer Aniston is pretty hot even in her 40‘s, I decided to give it a try. I knew that all I was going to get from the film was the assured sex …

Based on its plot, The Bounty Hunter would seem like another Mr & Mrs Smith [Blu-ray] - a married couple at each others' throats - literally. However, it doesn't work nearly as well. Frankly, for a romantic comedy, there's not much romance or comedy.The twists and turns aren't very exciting. Jennifer Anniston's acting is lifeless. As a movie, it's not horrible viewing, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I found it funny, sexy, and entertaining. Forget the box office and "official" reviews. I liked it.
