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

You do not need to unlock a phone to dial 911, as such Cooper should know this as a know-it-all officer in the car scene where Daniella loses the phone while trying to key in the combination. See more »


Cooper: You're in danger, ma'am, but everything's going to be fine.
Daniella Riva: What about my husband?

Loved it
5 July 2015 | by trunkmonkey-61292See all my reviews

I read reviews about how terrible this movie was so I went into the cinema not expecting much.

I don't think I stopped laughing!, I loved this movie and thought Reese and Sophia were brilliant together. Great show and would go see it again for sure.

Its a comedy, its light hearted and its great!.

Plenty of gags, good laughs and even some girl on girl action which was hilarious.

Don't listen to the snooty critics.

Go have some fun and enjoy this comedy.

Don't leave at the finish, wait for the bloopers at the end!!
