The Bounty Hunter

Movie time! - Action, romance and comedy all rolled into one....

This week, I went to watch a new romantic comedy called The Bounty Hunter:
(Thanks for the tickets, TnG!)
The official movie poster...

I don't remember much about the movie... except that there was a heart attack inducing scene where Gerard Butler was standing half naked, rock hard abs and most of his manly physique on display (save for where he had his towel wrapped).
:D

Haha... Just kidding (sort of).
;)

Anyway, I don't want to give too much away since the movie has just started running,... but generally I thought the movie was ok:
- simple (and kinda cliched) plot,
- some really irritating characters, BUT
- passable acting,
- some good lines/ jokes,
- sufficient amount of eye candy for both guys and girls. :)

It's definitely not a bad movie (although Rotten Tomatoes has given it an earth shatteringly low score of 8%!)... as long as you don't expect too much.
(Hmmmm,... actually it's probably quite a good date night movie since Jennifer Aniston is good eye candy and there's some action - car chases/ guns/ etc - thrown in for the guys)
"Are you trying to seduce me?" ...


Main characters:
Jennifer Aniston as Nicole Hurley
Gerard Butler as Milo Boyd
Jason Sudeikis as Stewart <--- So annoying!
Peter Greene as Earl Mahler
Christine Baranski as Kitty Hurley <--- My favourite character in the movie! :)

Couldn't find the half naked Gerard Butler screenshot from this movie, so here's one from 300 instead...


Here's what some others thought of the movie:
- the Nomad Gourmand
- EwinEe.com
- Keeping It Simple and Stupid
- So What's Up?
- I Come, I See, I Hunt, I Chiak


Happy Monday!*,
J

* Is there such a thing? :)

A Happy Monday to me would be to find Jennifer Anniston seated in the cubicle beside me. Therein lies the answer to your question :P

to UnkaLeong:
LOL. Well, I'd be happy but only if it was Gerard Butler, and preferably without his shirt on. :) :)

to thule aka leo:
Oh no. Why?
Well, watching at home is good too - no lines, no irritating ppl - can relax and watch the movie. :)

to "joe" who is constantly craving:
haha... I understand. I felt that way about Gerard Butler. ;)
