“Hot Pursuit”

Rated PG-13

1 hour 25 minutes

Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vegara, John Carroll Lynch, Jim Gaffigan

I know what you’re thinking… please, no, not another cross country chase comedy thriller involving a looney tunes cop protecting a witness in jeopardy.

Reese Witherspoon should have turned in her driver’s license before leading us on a wild goose chase searching for anything even remotely amusing.

Sofia Vegara’s spitfire personality fails to ignite the necessary odd couple chemistry with Witherspoons’ inflexible, uptight protector.

Moviegoers hoping for something fresh and original, go nowhere fast with this high speed turkey.

The material is so stale, you’d swear the film has been sitting up on the shelf for years never expecting a theatrical release.

The bland situations are retreads from countless road movies you know you’ve seen before.

You can sense the desperation of the two struggling stars, trying to squeeze some humor out of their lame comic situations.

How can anything work when the material’s so predictable and it’s all been done so many times before?

Even though “Hot Pursuit” runs well under an hour and a half, it feels so much longer.

“Hot Pursuit” is quite simply the most awful movie that Reese Witherspoon’s ever had the misfortunate to star in.

And I can prove it by giving “Hot Pursuit” a rock bottom 1 star.

I can’t image with Reese Witherspoon was thinking when she signed on for something so obviously loaded with leftovers. I can only guess she doesn’t get to the movies much.
