Becky and I went to see the new Jennifer Aniston movie The Bounty Hunter on Friday night at the Kerasotes theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The Yahoo website at The Bounty Hunter describes the movie as follows:
“Milo Boyd, 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. 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…”
The Bounty Hunter main character, Milo Boyd, has a great last name, but it is still a very predictable romantic comedy that is at best “cute”. It’s Jennifer Aniston playing the same person she always plays, only with a different co-star and plot. In this case, it’s Gerard Butler and I think they had some romantic escapade supposedly off the screen, but who cares.
The story should be really funny, since it’s about a bounty hunter who is given the assignment to arrest his ex-wife that he really can’t stand. Unfortunately, almost all of the funny scenes are in the Previews with nothing really new that comes out in the film. There are a few plot twists, but nothing that really grabs you and makes you want to keep watching. On the contrary, it drags on and on and is quite boring.
It’s a nice first date flick at best and should be coming to a rental rack or RedBox near you very soon. Granted there were a few people who liked it, but we thought it was definitely a rental and not worth spending the high prices at the box office for this one.
