Would have been more enjoyable with Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife,
This review is from: The Bounty Hunter (DVD)
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.

The trailers for this looked so painful that I was actually cringing.

It WAS pretty awful, Karen. But what do you expect from an Anniston flick? They're all the same.
