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

very funny
15 May 2015 | by jasan01See all my reviews

first. suspend disbelief.

second. go with the flow.

third. laugh till your belly hurts.

this is a cute and amusing, albeit formulaic, flick. that said, I am a fan of the Witherspoon. and of the typical hot Latin mamacita of the sofia v. type.

there is nothing really new here. you have seen it in every hate you/love you buddy flick ever made....however, it is well done for the genre and worth the view.....and it is funny and amusing. its entertaining, and so worth the price of the ticket.
