My wife and I rented a movie that was surprisingly good. Like most women she wanted to rent a “chic-flic” so I agreed and I looked and it said The Bounty Hunter. I thought to myself, “Isn’t that a show on A & E?” Heather thought she made a mistake but we decided to watch it anyways and I was glad we did. The plot is about a bounty hunter (played by Gerard Butler, star of 300) named Milo Boyd who is recently divorced from his wife (played by Jennifer Aniston) named Nicole Hurley who is in trouble for not appearing at a court date. Milo is given the task of chasing down his ex-wife to bring her back for bail and arraignment. The movie is filled with twists and turns as Hurley is working on a case for her story in the newspaper and has stumbled across a lead on a possible murder case.
While running and spending time with each other Milo and Nicole fall in love with each other all over again while confronting painful realities of their separation. Themes from Scripture are abundant:
- Good versus evil
- Right versus wrong
- Marriage Covenant
This is a good movie for couples to watch to strengthen their commitment to each other and to witness the powerful intoxication love offers.
