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

Most of the police codes said are completely random. For example, when Cooper tells Daniella to call 911, she tells her to report two 10-60s and a 10-12. In real police code, a 10-60 means a lock-out and a 10-12 means visitors present. What Cooper should have said was a 10-71 (shooting), two 10-53 (man down), and a 217 (assault with intent to murder).

User Reviews

Just... no!

I saw some brief videos on Instagram of this movie on some movie pages I follow. It looked really good and comical. 30 minutes into watching it I turned it off. Nothing about this movie was funny or practical. The "police work" was so bad an unrealistic. Nothing about this movie was funny. All the actors and actresses did nothing but annoy me. How anyone could rate this higher than 3 is beyond me.
