Storyline

Milo Boyd, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly. He thinks all that's ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other - until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honor and obey was tough - staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher. Written by Sony Pictures

Trivia

When the Black S.U.V. that is following/chasing them flips/overturns, Milo and Nicole sift through the wreckage. She sarcastically calls him "Kojak". This is a sweet nod to Telly Savalas, who is Jennifer Aniston's godfather, having been her father's (John Aniston's) best friend. See more »

Goofs

Milo says the stun gun shocked him at 250 volts, which is too weak to shock him unconscious. Stun gun charges are over 10000 volts. See more »

I waited weeks for this?
20 March 2010 | by kowgirl_tina-1See all my reviews

I was excited when I first saw the previews of this movie. I am a HUGE Gerard Butler fan and I don't believe he's ever done a movie with Ms Anniston. The concept was fair enough...a romantic comedy with a little suspense thrown in. I left the theater feeling..."that's it?" Sure there were a couple cute things here and there, maybe a little suspense, but definitely not enough to carry a movie! The pace was much too slow for me, although I'm sure the actors did what they could with the script they were given. I loved seeing Gerard in Law Abiding Citizen, but this was truly disappointing! I am a big movie fan, but I wouldn't recommend seeing this to any of my friends :(
