Hey Lovelies, 

Over the weekend while planning something special I popped on ‘Hot Pursuit’ to help me get through it, as I thought the positive energy would help me get through everything I needed to do and it definitely helped! 

Starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, the film sees Witherspoon play Rose Cooper, a cop who is a laughing stock throughout the office. Until she manages to crack the code and take down the one person in which they have been looking for, with the help of Vergara’s character. Together the pair are definitely a great cinematic team, but it does feel often throughout that the plot has been recycled. 

While the film does work and manages to create a few laughs throughout, there is something that reminds audiences of ‘The Heat’ and therefore it becomes a bit of a comparison. It would have been brilliant to have seen the two teams maybe come together in the film, as it would have been hilarious, but because they don’t it just seems like the film is trying to be like it. 

Ultimately the real winner of this film is just the chemistry between the two leading characters. It is there dynamic that makes the film likable and when you mix their two very different characteristics, it works incredibly well. It would be highly entertaining to maybe see these two in a different sort of film, picture a dark comedy, compared to this film which doesn’t fully except their comedy traces. 

Although the film does provide audience members with key messages about how females can be, especially with the tropes in which films have set for them. The women in this film have provided audiences with some great monologues about being yourself, which many other films haven’t done before but really should have. 

There is a great use of testing the characters lifestyles and looks, to show audiences that they can be whatever they want to be, as long as they are happy with that, and therefore makes the best message throughout the film, with two great actresses by their side. It would have been great though if the plot and script could match up to this throughout. 

This is why I am giving the film…
