Storyline

Milo Boyd, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly. He thinks all that's ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other - until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honor and obey was tough - staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher. Written by Sony Pictures

The Bounty Hunter - truly the epitome of an awful movie.
19 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Let's just say that every once in a while a truly horrible movie comes along to remind us all what good movies are. This is a monumental failure in casting, direction, plot (or lack thereof) and production. A couple - Jennifer-I-can't-act-Aniston and Gerard-stunned-mullet-Butler are separated. She's the one accidentally running from the law, he's meant to catch her. Can anyone say 'predictable' - Pulllleeeeassse. Throw in the bad guy - queue bad guy music - Peter Greene (bad dude stereotype think The Mask) and yawn through the laughingly called 'suspense' scenes.

The only good thing about this music was the soundtrack. Not the background stuff - nothing is more annoying than quirky music for comedic scenes and suspense music for suspense scenes. Why is it that directors/producers have the need to fill in quiet moments with mundane filler? This movie was in short an insult to a viewer's intelligence. What an absolute waste of money. It would have been better to donate money to charity, than to take an absolutely anorexic script off to Columbia to actually be made into a movie. The powers that be must have been on something to think this would ever be a success.
