Storyline

Rose Cooper is an uptight and by-the-book cop whose name has become synonymous with screw-ups. She's given a chance to redeem herself one day when she is assigned to protect a federal witness, Daniella Riva, the vivacious and outgoing widow of a drug boss. As the two polar opposites race through Texas, they find themselves pursued by everyone from crooked cops to murderous gunmen. However, their greatest obstacle to making this out alive may be themselves as they learn that Cooper has now been considered a fugitive fleeing with Daniella. Written by HenryZ

Goofs

In the movie, Officer Cooper and Daniella Riva head from somewhere around San Antonio to Dallas. Along the way, they stop at a casino. The only casino in Texas is in Eagle Pass, which is a town settled in right next to the border with Mexico. This means they either went too far south, too far east into Louisiana, or too far north into Oklahoma. Regardless, they were never headed to the correct location. See more »

Don't listen to the critics, this movie is hilarious
8 May 2015 | by lalalohanSee all my reviews

While this is not an Oscar-worthy film, it really is funny. I went to see it expecting to laugh, and thats what I did. Its a fun film that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to see a good light-hearted comedy. Don't listen to the negative reviews, this movie is really enjoyable and I will be seeing it again, and probably buying it when it comes out on DVD. While it is not totally original, it is worth seeing just for the fact that it will make you laugh. Its an easy watch. I don't believe it should be getting all these bad reviews, I thought it was hilarious! As did everyone else in my theatre. Also there are some really good plot twists that will catch you by surprise. The writing, acting, and editing were all great. Overall its a really fun movie that will put you in a good mood and give you some good laughs. One of my top favorite films of 2015 so far!
