After a few years of misses, Reese Witherspoon is officially back. Now that she’s built back her cred with her Oscar-nominated film Wild, she’s reminding us of her comedic chops that made Tracy Flick and Elle Woods so memorable with her latest film, Hot Pursuit.
In the Anne Fletcher-directed film, she stars as a tiny police officer (a point hilariously hammered home throughout the trailer) tasked to protect a drug widow’s boss (Sofia Vergara). The unlikely — seriously, who is the casting genius that thought these two could work together? — duo dodge bullets, gunmen, and all kinds of danger as they blaze through Texas.
The film hits theaters on May 8 just in time for Mother’s Day. So, for now, feel free to watch this surprisingly entertaining teaser over and over again. We sure are.
