The female comedy film Hot Pursuit is going to release this weekend in the USA. It stars two prominent personalities, one from the world of movies and the other is the reigning queen of television – Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. The movie is about cops, drug lords, their wives, chases, gunfire, you get the gist. From the initial promos, it does not seem that interesting, and there would be quite a few who may hop over for a second visit to Avengers: Age of Ultron rather than try their luck with an average-looking comedy flick. But even if they do opt for Hot Pursuit, at least one thing is certain, the combination of Witherspoon and Vergara would not disappoint!
