Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler prove an appealing team in this easy-going romcom thriller.

Aniston plays a New York journalist who skips a court summons in order to follow a lead on a news story about police corruption and a murder cover-up.

And who should get the job of tracking her down but her ex-hubbie, played by Butler.

It doesn’t take him long to catch up with her and they soon find themselves bickering merrily away while dodging bullets as the criminals Aniston is investigating want her dead.

It’s a familiar and rather thin plot, but the two stars work well together, making for an enjoyably frothy film.
