*****Director: Anne Fletcher
Cast: Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara.
Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara starrer “Hot Pursuit" is a letdown of a movie and ridicule to a female buddy comedy, some where the Director demonstrate women’s cannot be the best of buddies. Academy Award-winning Reese Witherspoon [Walk the Line] must be on a whirl of signing movies without being rapt about the upshot of her role as an asinine inept police officer, surely this role of her will be not for the predictable hall of fame in near future.
The worst part Vergara [one of People magazine's "50 most beautiful people"] horrifically underrates her sexual influence with a cliché role as just customary always being seen in all her films, fails to ignite the screen.
Director Anne Fletcher [The Proposal] has one feather down from her cap, ostensibly after roping in Witherspoon and Vergara as principal producer of "Hot Pursuit” also did not create much of a firework in a women centric film.
The chortle atmosphere is missing which normally keeps the audiences engaged as the run-of-the-mill situations that are not so very funnier. There are silly situation as a thorny shoot-out leaves Riva's [Vergara] husband Felipe [Vincent Laresca] in a pool of blood in no time as Cooper [Witherspoon] and her associate are dumbstruck by the mayhem and a insignificant chase of the dirty cops and drug dealers in the entire movie has been staged without any adrenaline and low key action pace. Strictly to be missed.
