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

In the movie, Officer Cooper and Daniella Riva head from somewhere around San Antonio to Dallas. Along the way, they stop at a casino. The only casino in Texas is in Eagle Pass, which is a town settled in right next to the border with Mexico. This means they either went too far south, too far east into Louisiana, or too far north into Oklahoma. Regardless, they were never headed to the correct location. See more »

don't know why so many haters out there on this movie
2 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

I looked on here before watching the movie and saw that a lot of people were hating on this movie, but I decided to watch it anyway. I was entertained. It was funny and you grow to like both Reese and Sofia.

I didn't watch the trailer so I didn't know what to expect. I just saw that it was labeled as action and comedy and I saw Reese was one of the main stars so I figured it couldn't be as bad as everyone is making it out to be.

I'm not quite sure why people found the jokes offensive in here. People gotta lighten up. It's a comedy movie. Everyone that wrote that it was offensive is being a little too uptight. Just go in with an open mind and don't take things too seriously and you will have fun.

If you enjoy movies like Miss Congeniality, Legally Blonde, and Spy you will definitely add this to that list of titles in your brain that you enjoyed watching with someone.

If you are wondering if you should watch it or not, I say you should. It was funny and enjoyable. Would make a good date movie.
