Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara in First Trailer for 'Hot Pursuit'
"We have been set up, shot at and hunted down." If you watched The Heat and thought to yourself, "Hey, I wish this was more like Midnight Run," then we have some good news for you. Hot Pursuit stars Reese Witherspoon as a feisty, uptight police officer tasked with escorting the widow/potential witness (Sofia Vergara) in an important investigation of a drug lord. But of course, shit goes down, and the two are forced to go on the run. Witherspoon and Vergara seem like a fun enough mismatched pair, but the comedy is a little broad, though I do like the bit about the news messing up their height and age respectively. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Anne Fletcher's Hot Pursuit from YouTube:
