The Bounty Hunter
Gerard Butler plays Milo Boyd, an ex-cop with a gambling problem and an ongoing grudge against his ex-wife, a career-minded New York Daily News reporter named Nicole, played by Jennifer Aniston. When Nicole misses a court date and her bail bondsman (Jeff Garlin) is out $50,000, Milo takes the gig. Aniston doesn't bring her old A-game to this, but at least she's not quiet and reserved. Butler makes the most of his Neanderthal rut. Three films into his romantic comedy career (following P.S. I Love You and The Ugly Truth), he has finally reached "watchable."
Greenberg stars Ben Stiller as a guy just out of a New York psychiatric treatment center who has come to L.A. to ease back into the real world. Much of the spot-on nuance that writer-director Noah Baumbach brought to The Squid and the Whale has gone missing.
The Greatest is an overly earnest, never-especially-convincing melodrama about a married couple (Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan) struggling with the tragic death of their teenage son.
Our Family Wedding (with America Ferrera and Lance Gross as a couple who tell their families they're engaged) is a mostly charming movie despite its cliché milieu.
