REESE WITHERSPOON IN HOT PURSUIT

2015 rating: *
Seeming like Holly Hunter from RAISING ARIZONA combined with Sally Field had she tried out her own Burt Reynolds style road comedy, another short and spunky Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon, puts on a noticeably fake “Good Old Girl” accent and goes so overboard, you would think she was rehearsing for an SNL skit that didn’t stretch into 90 long minutes.

Her unlucky, by-the-book Cooper is so uptight that, like Sandra Bullock in THE HEAT, she’s begging to be brought down to Earth… Which is where SofĂ­a Vergara’s Daniella Riva comes in… but not very handy.

Befitting the "reluctant buddy flick" template, the hyperactive Cooper and the tough Riva are polar opposites… the cop protecting the wife of a gangster who was supposed to testify, and with two bad Feds on their trail… yet they can’t stop talking to and at each other, making HOT PURSUIT a vapid competition where both actresses, and the audience, lose.
