Reese Witherspoon stars as Cooper, an overeager police officer who is tasked with escorting Daniella Riva (Sofia Vergara), a money launderer’s wife, to federal court in order to testify against a drug kingpin. After being ambushed, the women are pursued by both corrupt police officers and assassins. But will they make it to court or will they pay the ultimate price?
Though this movie plays on stereotypes and wasn’t well received by the critics, I enjoyed it immensely! Female buddy movies are not the norm, and I like seeing women work together instead of competing against one another. Silly, but entertaining, Hot Pursuit is a fun distraction.
