Consensus: Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston remain as attractive as ever, but The Bounty Hunter's formula script doesn't know what to do with them -- or the audience's attention.

Even considered as no more than an assembly-line Hollywood product, The Bounty Hunter falls well below factory standards.

Globe and Mail

The story of a bail enforcer who captures his newspaper-reporter ex-wife manages to be both formulaic and patchwork, with whatever twinkles that exist between the stars eclipsed by the overall crudeness.

It's one thing for the leads to not share believable romantic chemistry, and then there's the rather sad and lazy display Aniston and Butler put on here, not even striking believable negative vibes as a divorced couple.

You know it's bad when a caper comedy makes you long for the Goldie Hawn-Chevy Chase showcases of yore...

The film is stuffed with these idiosyncratic micro-roles (I loved Siobhan Fallon Hogan as the bondsman's secretary), which prove more diverting than the two main characters.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

As a lousy mystery and lousier romantic comedy, The Bounty Hunter is two bad films in one.

There'll be worse films released in 2010 -- but not many.

If only the filmmakers could have made it less tedious and more entertaining, then we might have actually cared about the characters. In the end, "The Bounty Hunter" is a forgettable film that offers no reward.

An expensive, low-rent, overlong, tired romantic action-comedy.

Gerard Butler is one sexy man. Definitely made this film more watchable than it really is. Jennifer Aniston is just as hilarious. Sort of like Mr & Mrs… More
