Star John Cusack, who appeared in a number of 1980s teenpics, later on went on to revisit the genre about twenty-three years later after this film, with Hot Tub Time Machine (2010). Both of these two pictures have titles which are prefixed with the word "Hot". See more »
The audio for the "jeep" at the beginning of the movie, later to be discovered as driven by his girlfriend, is clearly a V-8 engine. However, the truck being driven is a Suzuki Samurai J13, which features a 1.3 liter 4-cylinder motor. See more »
Comedy, Drama, Action, and Adventure wrapped in a charming love story - Don't Skip This One!!
Male/Born 1983/Detroit, Mi.
I am very disappointed with the lack of support on IMDb for this movie. I will admit I was very young when I first saw Hot Pursuit, but I recently watched it for the first time in many years and loved it all over again. It's a non-stop adventure with a ton of laughs, great characters, and an interesting story. It features Cusack in the prime of his young career and Ben Stiller before he was Ben Stiller.
I described the movie to a friend of mine as a comedy/adventure that kinda turns into a watered down Rambo flick...but in my opinion it works really well and is probably my favorite Cusack flick. I recently saw Better Off Dead for the first time and thought it was pretty good, but it's amazing to me that this Cusack movie doesn't carry more of a fan base.
Unfortunately, you may have a hard time finding this flick in the rental stores. I think I paid $8 for a new copy on Amazon, but this movie is definitely worth the buy. It will be one that you can watch over and over!!
