Hot Pursuit Movie Review And Exclusive Interview With Sofia Vergara

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.

Sofia Vergara Hot Pursuit Movie Exclusive Interview

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!”

The movie producers and director did a great job of integrating multicultural characteristics in the characters played by Jennifer Lopez (Latina entertainer and actress)  and Rihanna (Barbadian singer, entertainer and actress).   In addition to the movie,  there is a Dreamworks HOME movie soundtrack which included three new songs by Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, Feel the Light song.  I love the soundtrack. It’s also a great soundtrack for kids.

Hurry up! Hurry up! Get in your spaceship and make sure to land on the purple carpet and go see Home.  Make sure to take someone with you to ensure you don’t get beemed up by the Boov!

 

HOME

The movie is out of this world and based on a book, The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex.  The screenplay was written by Tom J. Astie and Matt Ember, produced by Chris Jenkins and Suzanne Buirgy and directed by Tim Johnson on earth.

Movie Review

Home is an endearing movie about love, family, unity and the real meaning of HOME.  The characters are so lovable, especially Tip and Oh.    Oh character is from a planet called Boov.  The Boov are running away from their enemy to earth and relocate all the humans to Australia.  Oh is a misfit, but deep down inside he is funny, silly and very lovable.  Tip’s character is from Barbados, intelligent, spunky and very inquisitive.    Tip is separated from her mother during the invasion and is on a quest to reunite with her.

The Boov come from another planet, can speak broken english and have adapted to our environment, sort of.  They have come to planet earth to get rid of all humans so that can take over the planet.     As the story unfolds, we find that Boov’s and humans actually have more in common than differences.  The movie will take you on an adventure of a lifetime.  You’ll even feel like you’re flying in a spaceship!
