With its convoluted plot, you’d think Bounty Hunter might be a waste of time. Who is after who? Which set of bad guys are we looking at? Why isn’t Milo a cop anymore? It doesn’t really matter. The game is only afoot between Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston. Everything else is filler.

The attractive leads have an engaging chemistry – the sole point of the film. The snappy retorts and crazy little chase scenes fit the bill for an hour and a half of light entertainment. In fact, finding Peetimes was pretty easy, since there aren’t really any set pieces you can’t miss.

I can even ignore the unfunny insensitive treatment of Nicole’s co-worker/suitor (a nice enough fellow who puts himself in the line of fire for Nicole and gets atrocious treatment for it). It was enough for me to settle into a pleasant little March movie and watch hunky Butler make cute little Aniston squirm.

B+ for the fun, and ignore the hammy henchmen/plot MacGuffins.

    I loved The Bounty Hunter as well as Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler. I loved watching their interaction and how their relationship changed throughout the movie.

    It’s all about the chemistry in a rom com. That’s why a movie like the Morgans failed so badly. I never had the sense that Hugh Grant and SJ Parker were actually in the same movie together.

    Not saying the chemistry was perfect with Anniston and Butler, but there was enough zing to make it a good time.
