The Bounty Hounter
"The Bounty Hunter" starts off with Nicole Hurley, portrayed by Jennifer Aniston, who is a well-respected reporter for a newspaper on an important case. She was recently arrested for a minor incident and is ordered to attend court which she of course, misses. Since, she missed court she is declared a fugitive and her ex-husband, Milo, portrayed by Gerard Butler, has to hunt her down and bring her to court hence the title, The Bounty Hunter.
The movie starts out slow and drags a lot through out. There are a few funny moments and some much needed action scenes, but for a movie thats not even two hours it seemed a whole lot longer. Most of the movie is filmed in Atlantic City, which was nice to watch since not many films or television shows are filmed in Jersey let alone Atlantic City.
The one thing I really enjoyed about this film, is the chemistry between the two main stars, Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler. I love them both individually and it was wonderful to watch them together on screen. I think both actors portrayed their characters well; its hard to see Jennifer Aniston as anything other than Rachel Green but she pulled it off and she looked beautiful doing it. Gerard Butler was also a delight to watch in this action-comedy.
