A sly, cover-all-audience-bases blend of romcom and action movie,
fails entirely to capture the potential zing or flash of either genres. Which is a shame, because Aniston and Gerard Butler make for a good pair-up (their combined attractiveness is near blinding).
The premise is silly but has potential, as Butler plays the titular hunter, who’s assigned his ex-wife (that’d be Aniston) as his next target. But unlike, say,
Mr & Mrs Smith
is at a loss for what to do with its magnetic leads.
Cue endless scenes of bickering, chasing and fighting – all of which go nowhere. Funny, considering we’d go just about anywhere to avoid watching it again.
