DVD Review: Hot Pursuit

Posted in DVDs, Film, Reviews
By Martin Roberts on 24 Nov 2015

You can see why Hot Porsuit might have seemed like a good idea on paper. A buddy comedy about a dedicated but inept police officer (Reese Witherspoon) escorting a preening Latina witness (Sofia Vergara) across the US to testify against a drug lord. There are brief instances in the film where you can see how good it might’ve been. But Anne Fletcher’s film is anodyne from start to finish, painfully lacking in laughs. It puts together two actors who have charisma together (the outtakes at the end, and on the DVD features, are much funnier than anything that made the final cut) but does nothing with them. Thankfully, it  doesn’t stick around long enough – barely one and a half hours – to get really gruelling, but you won’t laugh much, and you’re unlikely to remember it.
