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.

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

A toothless and nearly laughless buddy comedy.

One of those wannabe-crazy comedies where you almost feel sorry for the stars as they get up to such loudly dorky shenanigans (or you would if they weren't so annoying)

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.

If justice was a real thing, the Academy would be knocking on Reese Whiterspoon's door to take her Oscar back. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

You'll laugh a few times, but Hot Pursuit fails to be the smart comedy it should've been, especially given that it stars an Oscar-winning actress and the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated star of one of TV's top comedies. This movie feels beneath them.
