In The Bounty Hunter, the couple that foils a bunch of tiresome grade-C thriller goons together stays together. Whether or not that's a recipe for love, it's certainly not a formula for romantic-comedy magic.

Try as they might, Nicole and Milo, as they are called in the movie, don't steam. Wispy vapors is about as good as it gets.

The mishmash ends up as a thoroughly unfunny adult cartoon.

Why, oh, why, was this movie necessary?

The Bounty Hunter does give Christine Baranski, as an Atlantic City entertainer and Mama Aniston, another opportunity to enthrall us with her drag-queenliness.
38
Tennant aims for a contemporary version of "The Thin Man," wedding the banter of sparring spouses with sleuth work. To say that he falls short of the mark is understatement.
38
We have to take the sexual tension on faith, as with everything in this formulaic glob of a script.

Aniston doesn't bring her old A-game to this. But at least she's not quiet and reserved and no-energy, her approach to too many roles of late. Butler makes the most of his Neanderthal rut.
38
Even if The Bounty Hunter is more plot-driven than your standard romantic comedy, it's never quite as funny as it should be.
25
That's what The Bounty Hunter has rustled up -- along with a listless rom-com, a feeble thriller and a supporting cast of clueless characters.
25
Works overtime for just a handful of chuckles and a few big yuks.
20
This synthetic comedy is instantly grating.
