The chemistry between the leads is nice. Otherwise much of this movie is based on stereotypes that I feel have women selling their existence short for vapid reasons. All of Witherspoons's life motivations originate from the need to impress a man. There is "something wrong" with her because she isn't married yet. Her value is often determined by her looks; a coworker says he "thinks she's cute", and gives her no respect as a professional but she just kind of smiles about it instead of calling it what it is, SEXUAL HARASSMENT. Lesbianism is used as the butt of a joke throughout the movie. (because being gay is a joke right?) I additionally felt it was a little racist with how the white character's would regard the other female lead's Colombian accent as a joke. And even though Witherspoon has been obsessed with being a cop her whole life she never bothered to learn to fight and needs men to do it for her (~unless she has a gun). So all in all if you're a stereotypical hetero-white woman whose never thought about or doesn't care about the aforementioned points, this movie will probably crack you up! Otherwise, I would wait until it's free on Hulu or something.

The characters fed off each other, in a good way and wondered if a little fun went beyond script. OK, the idea has been out there with male actors, but these ladies pulled off a positive version and I would watch again. I would have liked to see the witness turned into a surprise partner at the end.

Do not watch this, its terrible, unfunny and down right stupid. The script was made by a five year old, Sofia Vegera sounds likes she's choking on tomatoes and I didn't laugh at all. Not to mention the plot was so poorly written and I'm pretty sure a toddler was holding the camera during the action scenes. This is the worst movie I have since in my life, its torture to watch 5 minutes of this film if you can even call this a film
