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

Goofs

Most of the police codes said are completely random. For example, when Cooper tells Daniella to call 911, she tells her to report two 10-60s and a 10-12. In real police code, a 10-60 means a lock-out and a 10-12 means visitors present. What Cooper should have said was a 10-71 (shooting), two 10-53 (man down), and a 217 (assault with intent to murder).

Quotes

Daniella Riva: What is that white thing?
Cooper: Oh, that's my underwear.
Daniella Riva: That's no underwear. That's a diaper!
Cooper: I like a lot of coverage.

Glad I rented this
13 June 2016 | by UGA-BrewerSee all my reviews

Glad I rented this, instead of seeing it at a theater. I'm shocked Reese Witherspoon agreed to this film. A very poor, silly comedy. I did however, see a glimpse of good acting ability in Sofia, when she showed her evil, serious side. I believe she could portray a great criminal, but that glimpse was simply that, a 20-30 second glimpse. I must admit, my wife was laughing and giggling throughout the movie at some of the more female oriented jokes. She seemed to enjoy it much more than I did. I was shaking my head almost the entire film. There was just too much slap stick to suit me. If you are a Sofia fan, you need to rent this. I don't think they could have showed much more of her body than they did without going to a higher rating. She is nice to look at but that screaming she does gets a bit irritating after a while. The film was only around an hour and thirty minutes long, I don't think I could have lasted much longer.
