The Bounty Hunter

Was invited to attend the premiere screening of The Bounty Hunter yesterday.



Thanks Advertlets for the tix, Euveng and Jason for inviting and Rebecca for coordinating. :)

In case you haven't got a clue as to what this romantic action comedy is all about...I'll let the trailer fill you in. :D


Keep in mind though that this isn't one of those movies where all the funny bits are in the trailer.

There were tons of hilarious moments in the movie that sent the whole cinema roaring with laughter. Also quite a bit of, erm, "eww" scenes as well...thanks to Gerard Butler who plays Milo Boyd the ex-cop who got kicked off the force and is now a bounty hunter. A scruffy, dirty, cheeky bounty hunter.


Jennifer Aniston plays Nicole Hurley, a reporter covering a story of a murder covered-up as a suicide, and also she's Milo Boyd's ex-wife. She jumps-bail to get some leads on the case and ends up as Milo's next assignment. He gets the assignment of a lifetime - sending his ex-wife to jail, but Nicole doesn't give in without a fight. That's when the game of cat and mouse begins. :)


Before the movie, I met up with Sandra and Chee Wei for a very last minute dinner. Was suppose to meet Joshua and Joyce there as well but Joyce still isn't feeling well and Joshua had work to do. :(

Nom nom @ Manhattan Fish Market e@Curve.

Sandra had fish and chips.

I had the seafood pasta. yums!

Got one of the staff to help us take a group shot...but he failed. T^T

Owh and they asked us to fill out comment cards after dinner and gave each of us a voucher for RM5 off the next meal and a voucher for free soup of the day/ fried country mushrooms/ fried calamari during our next visit. yay! :D

Mia joined us later for the movie. Was so nice to see her after so so so long. haha. When was our last meeting babe? Last year's Halloween right? xD

Didn't get to camwhore with the rest of the people who went. :C
I remember seeing Rebecca (of course, she gave us our tickets.hehe.), Thong Kai, Melvin, Dila, Justin and Sheeren. :D

This is a baju Rebecca gave me. Thanks! :p
I can wear it while working out to get Jennifer's fit and fab bod. xD

Honestly I felt that the movie wasn't too bad. I won't say it's out of this world, but it was good enough to keep me entertained. :D I really enjoyed the antics between the two exes and they showed us how misunderstandings can ruin a lot of things in a relationship.

There's a good mix of comedy, romance and a bit of action...a lot of eye candy for fans of Jennifer and Gerard. *wink wink* The side stories in the movie weren't developed very well so the main thing that keeps this movie going would be the chemistry between Jennifer and Gerard's characters.


My fav character in the movie has got to be Kitty, Nicole's mom, played by Christine Baranski. She doesn't appear much in the movie (such a waste) but when she does, it's always hilarious. She's so naughty. haha. :D

Another interesting character is Stewart (Jason Sudeikis), the weird colleague who stalks Nicole and thinks they have something wonderful between them. He's a really disturbing character. Ugh.

Owh and be sure to look out for a very interesting door that leads to a club in the movie. ;)


Hugs n Kisses,
Di
