QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A straight-laced female police officer and the wife of a Colombian drug dealer are forced on the run, targeted by drug-cartel hitmen and corrupt cops.
PLOT:
Rose Cooper (REESE WITHERSPOON) is a disgraced cop now relegated to desk duty in the police evidence room after accidentally tasering a drunk college student and lighting him on fire. She gets a shot at redemption when her boss, Captain Emmett (JOHN CARROLL LYNCH), assigns her to partner with Detective Jackson (RICHARD T. JONES) to protect a criminal named Felipe (VINCENT CARESCA) and his hot-headed wife, Daniella (SOFIA VERGARA), as they prepare to testify against the vicious drug lord, Vicente Cortez (JOAQUIN COSIO).

Daniella is distraught that she will have to enter the government's Witness Protection Program as a result. Those plans are interrupted, though, when two hitmen named Jesus (BENNY NIEVES) and Angel (MICHAEL RAY ESCAMILLA) and corrupt cops Hauer (MATTHEW DEL NEGRO) and Dixon (MICHAEL MOSLEY) launch separate ambushes.

Cooper and Daniella find themselves on the run and clash constantly over everything from the former's straight-laced attitude and insistence on obeying the law to the latter's loud and boisterous manner and willingness to do whatever it takes to stay alive. On the road, they get help from Randy (ROBERT KAZINSKY), a wrongly convicted felon who falls for Cooper. We eventually learn that Jesus and Angel are working for Daniella, who is secretly obsessed with killing Cortez and avenging her murdered brother.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
