Sofia and Reese slow down for a minute in Hot Pursuit.

Sofia and Reese slow down for a minute in Hot Pursuit.

The 2015 action crime comedy Hot Pursuit stars the always-spunky Reese Witherspoon (Wild) and the always-hot Sofía Vergara (Chef, TV’s Modern Family).

In the film, an uptight, by-the-book cop (Witherspoon) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen. Yup, that’s pretty much the plot…

Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip) from a screenplay by David Feeney and John Quaintance, the film also stars John Carroll Lynch (Crazy, Stupid, Love) and Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim).

The critics were none too kind to Hot Pursuit, with the film garnering an awful 8% rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 128 published reviews. Audiences weren’t that generous either—the movie has grossed only $35 million at the domestic box office since its wide release in early May.

Hot Pursuit Blu-ray boxThe Blu-ray contains the following features:

The Womance
Reese and Sofía’s on-set crazy-mashup-antics. From dance moves to car crashes, see these women light up the screen and leave us in stitches with their side-splitting comedic styling.

Say What?
Watch the hilarity that ensued when Reese and Sofía each tried to speak the other’s language. See Reese get her tongue tied trying to speak Spanish and watch Sofía’s tongue actually go numb from trying to speak English.

Action Like A Lady
In this action montage we will see all the crazy fun that went into creating the insane action scenes in the film. From jumping out a ten-foot high window, to a crazy girl fight to commandeering a tour bus during a high- speed shoot out…bring on the laughs.

Alternate Ending

The stand-alone DVD, meanwhile, contains only The Womance as a bonus feature.
