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.

The film relies far too heavily on the reputations of its two leads and there's very little that surprises throughout the film and it never really even commits to the 'odd-couple' dynamic.

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.

Jason Bailey
Flavorwire

A picture in which every single element conspires to make it feel like a movie you rented one lonely Saturday night back in 1987 and immediately regretted.

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.

Spectacularly misogynist. Every single attempt at humor - all of which fail - comes from abusing and humiliating its central female characters as women.
