The beginning of strife is like letting out
so stop before the quarrel breaks out.
Even such likeable stars as Jennifer Anniston and Milo Gerard Butler cannot do much to save this trite story about a divorced couple forced together when he, the bounty hunter of the title, arrests his ex- wife and sets out to take her to jail. Nicole is a journalist who skips out on a court hearing to run down a hot tip on a story, so Milo, her ex, is delighted to be assigned to go after her.
Since when does even a wasteful justice system as ours go to the expense of tracking down someone for such a minor crime? Better, since when has Hollywood become so desperate as to spend so much money on a film that is better suited for the Life Time cable channel? There are some laughs emerging from their predictable entanglements, and even a brief, moving moment when, at the lovers nest where they honeymooned, they recall what they once had going for them.
