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
Universal Pictures originally picked up the script before putting it in turnaround, in which Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picked it up, and partnered with Warner Bros. to distribute. See more »
The cuff shackling Daniella to Cooper during the bus chase is obviously so big that she could have freed herself from it at any time. After the chase has ended, Sofía Vergara accidentally pulls her hand halfway out of it (a second before Cooper says "Move! Move!"), then hurriedly slides it back on her wrist. See more »
Having seen the previews of this movie, I was really looking forward to some good laughs. Sadly, the previews show nearly all the high points. The reason I rated this 6 instead of 5, or even 4, is that it is pretty much devoid of profanity and sexual innuendo, which is a welcome development these days. It seems more filmmakers are either realizing they can make more money appealing to a wider audience, have hired writers with more than a junior high vocabulary, and/or (gasp!)are growing a moral backbone.
I didn't expect Thelma and Louise, but hoped for a little more originality in the plot. I actually wrote a similar story in 5th grade. There is not much chemistry between any of the characters, and the romance seems to come out of nowhere.
There is no reason to see this on the big screen and no reason to spend the big bucks to see it on the big screen. Wait for DVD or TV.
