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

Boring
30 August 2010 | by isaac_g_unitSee all my reviews

Well, what can i say. The story line was lame, the acting was a atrocious, it was so immature and a 8 year would even dislike the petty humor. It was an all round shocker. Plain pathetic, not funny and was the worst romance i've seen!

When i saw the trailer i thought hey, maybe this could be alright. But i was obviously way off!

The trailer had more humorous parts than the actual movie. If you like this, well then you obviously have no knowledge of a good comedy. Believe me it isn't worth the sit, or should i say sleep. Save yourself some boredom and don't bother watching this.
