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.

Remains cold as comedy, pursuing laughs unsuccessfully until the end ... where a bloopers reel reveals the cast's chuckling fun. At least someone got some guffaws out of this guff.

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.

How could anything as lightweight and predictable be so hilarious? Because it has Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara in it.

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.

The story bounces through mood swings that Prozac couldn't cure, veering unsteadily from light comedy to dark drug-world violence to female-bonding pathos.

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
