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.

There are some laughs to be had along the constructed way but the minuses outweigh the pluses and the whole female police mismatch was done better in The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.

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.

Hot Pursuit is a movie so unutterably terrible it defies explanation...

Wesley Morris

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 Monitor (McAllen, TX)

Too many convenient situations, too many idiotic minor characters and too many bad lines of dialogue involving menstruation and criminal nicknames forced this buddy comedy completely off the map.
