Trailer Watch: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Flee From a Drug Cartel in “Hot Pursuit”

Trailer Watch: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Flee From a Drug Cartel in "Hot Pursuit"

Between Amy Schumer in “Trainwreck,” Melissa McCarthy in “Spy,” Amy Poehler in “Inside Out,” Anna Kendrick & Co. in “Pitch Perfect 2,” and now Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara in “Hot Pursuit,” this female comedy-packed summer feels like the one we should’ve had after “Bridesmaids” went big. 

Better late than never, I suppose. Witherspoon and Vergara go crowd-pleasingly broad in Anne Fletcher’s “Hot Pursuit,” which finds Witherspoon’s petite Texan cop (her shortness is a running gag) safeguarding Vergara’s witness-needing-protection from a dangerous drug lord. 

Fletcher is also the director of “The Guilt Trip,” “The Proposal,” “27 Dresses,” and the inimitable “Step Up.”

“Hot Pursuit” opens May 8.
