I wanted to like this movie so bad, but it was impossible.
Erika M. Vidor
The Bounty Hunter, starring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston is just another comedic romance.
R. Chou
This movie was really very funny and it had a good story to go along with the comedy.

There are a large number of movies released starring big name stars that just never seem to quite live up to their potential. The movie that is, not the stars. And I don't think it's the fault of the stars either. Some would say it's a combination of script, direction and more but in general I don't think its any one item. It's a combination of them all and perhaps just a lackluster idea that seemed better on paper. Such is the case with THE BOUNTY HUNTER.

Gerard Butler stars as Milo Boyd, a down on his luck bounty hunter deep in debt to bookies who never seems to have much luck. Having just caught a bail jumper the end result is a night in jail for torching a parade float on accident while attempting to catch the guy.

Nicole Hurley (Jennifer Aniston) is a hot shot reporter who thinks she's on to a major story. An apparent suicide left behind too many questions that no one seems to be asking. As Nicole is about to go before a judge for an assault charge (what that involves is revealed later and it's not as funny as it should be) when she gets a call from an informant. Since she doesn't show for her hearing, her bail is revoked and she's a wanted fugitive.

Guess who gets to pick her up for jumping bail? Of course it's Milo, who also just happens to be Nicole's ex-husband. Yes the pair had a parting of the ways and one gets the idea that it wasn't an easygoing divorce. No, both parties seem to not think well of the other. And when Milo tosses Nicole into the trunk of his car to take her in, things don't get a lot better.

As the film moves forward, Milo eventually sees the problems that Nicole is having between trying to find clues to her story that might involve a best friend they both share as well as being shot at by someone who wants this story silenced.

The Bounty Hunter isn't even remotely funny. Even though it's not really a romance comedy, it sure *feels* like one because of how fruity and nonchalant the whole storyline is. The action bits feel like they were created by a bunch of 5 year olds, or rather, created by a group of writers that were going for something only a *very* select few would be able to appreciate.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the main character being Jennifer Aniston. She's not the kind of actress to star in really exciting action-packed films. No, this is definitely NOT a suspense- it's a really pitiful attempt at a comedy involving far-fetched and pointless "bounty hunter" *comedy* segments- completely unsuspenseful.

As soon as I found out there was no suspense, well, I said to myself "Maybe I can appreciate it as a comedy film". Nope. I couldn't. Not when I had to sit through one failed attempt at humor after another.

Just skip it.

Look, going into this you know what you're getting. It'll be a pseudo-chick flick in which Jennifer Aniston will be hot; Gerard Butler will be manly; the two will be forced to reconcile because of proximity; and the laughs - as well as the action - will be dwarfed by the attempts to tie everything into a happily ever after bow.

Milo Boyd (Butler) is a recently fired cop who has taken a job as a bounty hunter. His ex-wife, Nicole Hurley (Aniston), is a pouty journalist who has just skipped a court appearance and jumped bail for a hot story about a potential murder cover-up. Naturally, the paths cross in a soggy Mr. and Mrs. Smith impersonation without the on-screen chemistry. Except Mrs. Smith in this case desperately wants to be with Mr. Smith. And by Mr. Smith I mean Brad Pitt. Hijinks ensue, they reminisce, and yadda yadda yadda.

Watch it on an intercontinental flight and at least you'll pass about two hours. Nothing is really bad, per se, but nothing stands out either. I think I laughed once, and it might have been out of pity. A banal rom-com at best. A better option might be some Tylenol PM and two beers.

I haven't quite figured out yet just why I like this movie so much but I think I found it to be kind of different, for one thing. Not the same old Jennifer Anniston, playing Rachel Green. Yes, she will always have that type of personality, 'cause that's who she is but I really like the chemistry between her and Gerard Butler for one thing. That's a big deal to me and I like a film where the characters actually grow, learn, change and move on-like they talked about when they had dinner together. Take responsibility for your #*%$ and move on. Also, I appreciated the fact that the few swear words were mild and the little bit of sexual innuendo was pretty tame. I also love Christina Baranski-she's fun no matter what she does but it would have been nice to see her and Anniston have a scene together (on the phone is not doing a scene together). The scene between Baranski and Butler was awesome, they even had chemistry. I also wonder how the actress who played Theresa managed to walk away without fainting when Butler dips her down for a passionate kiss after she hands him a check! Sigh! Now that was hot!
I really love this film. I have a copy that I just put in now when I'm doing other stuff and have it running in the background. It's fun, it's fast, it's clever, and it's crazy. Oh, and most of the violence, directed at Jason Sudekis's, Stewart, is comedic and besides his character deserves it, he plays a dope, but a hilarious dope! At one point, he congratulates himself for something and says, 'Stewart, you a tremendous stud!' Hilarious! He's perfect for the part.
This movie truely is funny and a little sappy. Give it a chance. Oh, and in the end, it also teaches us a good lesson in friendship, so there!
