Andy Tennant

2010
Rating:
PG-13
The Bounty Hunter is a 2010 action comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler as former spouses forced to depend on one another to survive. Daily News reporter Nicole Hurly (Jennifer Aniston) may have the story of a lifetime about police corruption, but she will have to jump bail for a minor violation in order to investigate. When Milo Boyd (Gerard Butler), Nicole's ex-husband and bounty hunter, hears about the job, he thinks he has found a delightful way to pay her back while making a much-needed $5000 in the process. Instead, Milo and Nicole find themselves caught between flirting and fighting each other as if they were still married. Nicole keeps giving Milo the slip, until they need to rely on one another to stay ahead of a murderous tattoo artist, Mahler (Peter Greene), and a female gangster, Irene (Cathy Moriarty). Andy Tennant ("Hitch") directs this comic misadventure of crime, love and money.
