When was the last time you went to the movies and laughed so hard your stomach hurt? I recently attended a girls night out private screening of Hot Pursuit Movie and Interviewed Sofia Vergara. Our girls night out evening was topped off with popcorn, candy, cupcakes and coffee and lots of silliness in between. I never thought my sister and I would ever stop laughing, but every time we think about the movie we share a laugh because the movie was really funny. It’s been a couple of weeks since we saw the movie and we still can’t stop laughing! The movie will be released on theaters May 8.

Hot Pursuit Movie Review
When I heard Sofia Vergara and Reese Whitherspoon were teaming up for Hot Pursuit, my curiosity peaked.It’s also great to see powerful women directing, producing and playing lead roles in movies, especially a comedy movie. I really admire both lead actors in other movies and loved their roles in Hot Pursuit, a laugh-out-loud hilarious movie. The movie plot and cast are hilarious, but the chemistry between Reese and Sofia is what really makes this a great comedy.
Hot Pursuit is about an uptight and by-the-book cop, Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) who tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow Daniela (Sofía Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen. Daniela is a tough woman who has no problem using her female assets to get what she wants. Cooper on the other hand is a woman who works in a predominately male field who tries to subdue her female assets and femininity to fit in to the workplace as a police officer.
As the movie develops you will embrace and fall in love with Daniela and Cooper. The characters are sassy, quirky and share dozens of silly jokes that are actually funny. I wish I could remember them all and share at least 21 jokes from Hot Pursuit that were actually funny. My stomach hurt so bad from laughing so hard, but it was a much needed laugh and girls night out. I definitely recommend the movie as a night out with your best friends. It will be a memorable girls night out.
I had the opportunity to interview Sophia Vergara as well. Here is what she shared about her character, favorite scenes and possibility of teaming up with Reese for another movie:
What drew you to the character Daniela? Any specific character traits?
SOFIA VERGARA: “WELL YOU KNOW IT WAS AN OBVIOUS ATTRACTION FOR ME BECAUSE SHE’S COLOMBIAN. I LIKED THAT SHE HAS A LITTLE TWIST AT THE END. IT WAS FUN TO GET TO PLAY BOTH SIDES OF HER. AND MOST OF ALL, I LIKED HER WARDROBE. IT WAS WAY BETTER THAN REESE’S.”
Loved your jokes, all of them! What is your favorite scene? Were there any improvised scenes?
SOFIA VERGARA: “THE BUS SCENE WAS MY FAVORITE TO SHOOT AND TO WATCH. IT WAS SUPER FUN TO DO. AND WHEN REESE’S CHARACTER IS DRESSED AS JUSTIN BEIBER I COULDN’T GET THROUGH A TAKE WITHOUT LAUGHING.”
You and Reese make a perfect pair. Can we expect a Hot Pursuit 2?
SOFIA VERGARA: “IF WE ARE LUCKY! MAYBE IT WILL BE LIKE THE FAST AND FURIOUS MOVIES AND WE CAN GET ALL THE WAY UP TO HOT PURSUIT 8!”
