    Don't understand the hate for this film. I appreciate the actors and the characters they play. It's funny, romantic, bit of action here and there and simply ticks all the boxes of a romantic comedy. Recommended to couples for date nights. I would gladly watch this again and again.

    This is the IDEAL flick for people who are bored of watching Robert De Niro Charles Grodin's scrotummy old faces every Christmas when Midnight Run is on the telly. That was well overdue a remake and the Hollywood guys have delivered in spades. There's a bit of a twist this time tho. The bounty is on a girl and the bounty hunter is her ex boyfriend.

You can understand how awkward it's gonna be when they're cuffed together for the duration of the film. Comedy actors Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston positively sizzle throughout... on-screen and off. That's method acting. Expand

    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. Butler makes the most of his Neanderthal rut.
  2. 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.
  3. The mishmash ends up as a thoroughly unfunny adult cartoon.
