Consensus: Shrill and unfunny, Hot Pursuit bungles what should have been an easy opportunity to showcase Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara's likable odd-couple chemistry.

James Berardinelli

There's hardly an area in which Hot Pursuit is not found lacking.

A toothless and nearly laughless buddy comedy.

Cooper is a rather pitiful caricature of a hapless blonde redeemed only by the actress's innate likeability which not even the crass script can totally suppress.

It's actually, actively worse than you think it's going to be.

"Hot Pursuit" features one of the worst and most forced performances of Reese Witherspoon's career, an irritating performance by Sofia Vergara(whom I love on 'Modern Family') and a seemingly endless parade of lazy and arbitrary plot twists and turns.

At a certain point, films that present themselves as flat-out comedies should generate some actual laughs.

The dueling accents are meant to be part of some mounting joke, in which each woman sounds like an idiot to the other. It's not funny. Neither is most of the movie, which throws these two at a wall of gags and hopes they stick.

You could easily imagine these two in a sharper, edgier comedy. Maybe, if Hot Pursuit is a hit, the filmmakers can take a mulligan and reunite them for a faster, funnier sequel.

Both leads offer a diminished shtick, Witherspoon flustered and prim, Vergara flogging her zany Latina firecat routine from Modern Family.

As Hot as revenge served on a witch's teat, this wasted team-up of good talent goes too big too always. Perhaps, the music used over the opening credits… More
