The Bounty Hunter
The Bounty Hunter is a recent movie starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler. Butler plays a bounty hunter that is assigned to go after his ex-wife (Aniston) for skipping on bail. The joy expressed in his face at this turn of events is quite comical. Aniston plays a fun loving newspaper reporter that is just desperate to "get the story".
There are some funny scenes, but most of the movie falls flat. I enjoyed the interaction as ex-husband and wife, and there were some light jokes. However, somewhere-and it is hard to explain how- the story seems to lose it's direction. One minute we are focused on the fact that they are divorced and 'gunning' for each other, but the next moment we are more focused on the 'story' Aniston's character is trying to pursue. It tries to come back to the original point but by then you have kind of gotten lost in the movie. I give this move a Bronze Ticket for the laughter but the complete lost in story.
