with Reese Witherspoon, Sofía Vergara, John Carroll Lynch, Robert Kazinsky, Richard T. Jones, Michael Mosley, Matthew Del Negro, Mike Birbiglia, Jim Gaffigan, Benny Nieves, Michael Ray Escamilla, Vincent Laresca
Assigned to protect the sexy widow of a drug kingpin, a straitlaced Texas police detective is forced to take flight with her precious cargo when an assortment of bad cops and ruthless hit men start closing in on the pair.
Watched it on the plane... I saw the trailer and thought, well, Sofia Vergara is very funny. And Resese Witherspoon ok. Sorry, I am not so found of her in general. Anyway, so the movie was... well, not good. The jokes are all in the trailer, so it makes the rest of the movie extend to a plague of jokes that gets either repeated such as the profile of the nerdy cop, or made to make men laugh (men with typical macho behavior, not all men, my apologies). It made me uncomfortable that the sense of humor was so diminishing to women and directed by a woman even worse... And I don't even mention how lousy the humor against lesbians was. Offensive actually.
