This ridiculous road movie is frantic, predictable (then unpredictable), and sorta funny. Directed by Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal"), we explore the world of drugs and dirty cops, as a bungling police officer tries to protect the widow of a drug dealer. The widow is supposed to testify in court, so our dedicated cop has to keep her alive until the trial.
We saw our share of rifle-toting hillbillies, vehicular mayhem, Tasers and gunfire. This is PG-13, so the language was fairly ribald, the humor was anatomical, the sexual situations were only alluded to and the pretend lesbian scene was simply not funny. I DID like their reactions to TV news clips as reporters kept making Cooper shorter and Daniella older than they really are.
We liked the trailer better....
