lost his job as a police detective
and following the break-up of his
marriage, a bounty hunter finds himself
having to bring in someone he knows
only too well his ex-wife, in the
hilarious movie The Bounty Hunter...
LIFE IS JUST ABOUT TO GET COMPLICATED for former cop turned bounty hunter
Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler: The Ugly Truth; PS I Love You; 300) when he
discovers he has been assigned to pick up his ex-wife Nicole (Jennifer Aniston:
Television's Friends; Marley And Me; The Break-Up), a reporter
for The Daily News, and take her to jail.
Milo thinks that all his Christmases have come at once. But when Nicole proves
impossible, insisting that her friend Jimmy (Adam Rose) has been kidnapped and
that her own life is in danger, he cannot bring himself to believe her. Big
Nicole had been following up on a suicide story. But something isn't quite right
and somebody wants to keep it under wraps. Nicole's colleague Stewart
(Jason Suderkis) is hot on her trail as he tries to reignite an imagined spark
that might just backfire on him.
As Nicole and Milo realise that their relationship is still as difficult as
ever, they soon realise that there is danger at every turn. If they thought
marriage was tough, they are just about to find that staying alive can get a
whole lot tougher. Aniston and Butler spark off each other brilliantly, leading
a first class cast.
Can Milo discover the truth about the suicide and rescue Jimmy, who is about
to be questioned by a ruthless tattoo artiste? Is Milo's best friend Bobby (Dorian
Missick) a bent cop who knows more than he should about the supposed suicide?
Will Milo and Nicole ever get over their need to play the game of one-upmanship
and get their love-hate relationship back on track? Does he even want her to
be taken into custody? There are some great opportunities for hilarious, slapstick
comedy along the way with a handful of tough characters you really just wouldn't
want to cross.
The Bounty Hunter is a fantastically funny, first-rate rom-com with light-hearted
tension that keeps you guessing. Don't miss it. The film also features: the
marvellous Christine Baranski (television's The Good Wife) as Nicole's
wonderfully-vampish mother, Kitty Hurley; Jeff Garlin (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm)
as Sid; Ritchie Coster as Ray; Cathy Moriarty as Irene; Peter Greene as Mahler;
Joel Marsh Garland as Dwight and Siobhan Fallon Hogan as Teresa.
The Bounty Hunter is Produced by Neal H Moritz; Written by Sarah Thorp;
Director of Photography is Oliver Bokelberg; and the film is directed by Andy
Tennant (Hitch; Sweet Home Alabama).
