Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Hot Pursuit is primarily an odd-couple buddy road-trip comedy, though it does have some violence, given the subject matter (a cop protects a woman who could be a witness against a drug lord). Gunfights results in deaths (non gory), and there are car chases/crashes and fights. Expect some sexual innuendo, as well as kissing, a bra-clad woman undressing, and a naked man getting out of the shower (no graphic nudity shown in either case). The two stars (Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara) exchange a kiss with the intent of distracting a man, and there are plenty of jokes about their relative body shapes and sex appeal, as well as some humor based in Latina stereotypes. Strong language includes "s--t" and "bitch," and there's some drinking by adults; a main character also accidentally gets high (played for humor).
- Sexual Content
- Conversations about sex, though nothing shown on screen. A woman kisses a man, and he alludes to wanting more. A woman kisses a woman to distract a man. Many close-up shots of cleavage. The back of a woman, who's undressing in public, is shown, with her bra visible. A woman walks in on a man getting out of the shower; no sensitive body parts are shown, but it's implied that he's fully naked. Jokes related to the main characters' sex appeal (or lack thereof).
- Gunfights sometimes result in deaths, though viewers don't see much gore. A woman punches another. A man beats up another guy with his bare hands. Cars topple and careen on major highways, causing accidents.
- "Damn," "ass," "hell," "scumbag," "bitch," and "s--t."
- Social Behavior
- Don't judge a book by its cover. But still, women are judged by their appearance, and having humor based in "lace thongs vs. granny panties" divisions isn't exactly empowering. Other jokes are based on additional tired cliches about women (a character can't get a date because she's so square, etc.).
- Logos for Dodge and Apple.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Drinking by adults (beer, liquor, etc.); flashback shows a character drunk. A main character is in the widow of a drug kingpin and is in danger from the cartel. Drugs are shown in flashback, and in one scene, a main character accidentally gets high on cocaine, with little consequence (situation is played for humor).
