Hot Pursuit may be corning the market on fun mindless comedies this summer, and judging from the two new trailers released today, it will be a surprise hit. Especially considering both of its main stars, Sofía Vergara and Reese Witherspoon are so beloved. Here, they seem to have that perfect kind of chemistry that makes a movie like this something really special.
This latest trailer, which comes in both a domestic and U.K. version, proves that Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon isn't the only woman with a mean Justin Bieber impression. Reese Witherspoon, who goes back to her Southern roots playing an extremely petite and air-headed Texas cop, must go undercover as the teen pop idol. But that's not the only disguise her and co-star Sofía Vergara have to take on to evade both a corrupt police force and the cartel. The pair find themselves posing as a deer (or is it a horse?), a romantic couple and Mexican folk dancers.
Anne Fletcher, who directed The Proposal and The Guilt Trip, is bringing just the right amount of insanity to this caper comedy. Its leading ladies are joined by a fine ensemble cast that also includes Jodi Lyn Brockton, Michael Mosley, John Carroll Lynch, Robert Kazinsky, Matthew Del Negro, Richard T. Jones and Divine Prince Ty Emmecca. Watch as one uptight and by the book cop tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.
