{#Movies} Highlights from the NYC @hotpursuitmovie Media Screening + Meet and Greet with @SofiaVergara #HotPursuit

Hot Pursuit Banner

At the movies and in theaters now is Hot Pursuit, a comedy/action/adventure starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara and I had the chance to attend the Media Preview that included a Meet and Greet with Sofia!


An uptight and by-the-book cop (Reese Witherspoon) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Sofía Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

Walking into the Screening and seeing this, PRICELESS:

Movie Snacks

I spent my morning at BeautyPress Spotlight Day (more to come on that later) so this display of treats definitely perked me up! Hungry New York City Media like to be FED!

Sofia Vergara's Jewelry Line with Kay Jeweler's was on display:

But she was definitely focused on promoting her new movie Hot Pursuit which was filmed during her hiatus from the television series Modern Family.

While the pursuit movie format - protagonists on the run - is certainly not new, Vergara and Witherspoon play off each other well, and the out-takes at the end definitely make you laugh out loud. But it's probably Sofia's purchase of a t-shirt while she is on the run that reads "Butter my Biscuits" that will make you laugh hardest and the interjection of a love interest/bad boy (yes a bit a la Thelma and Louise) that picks the movie up a bit. I will let you guys decide whether or not to 'ticket or skip it' on this one as this is either a plot device you will like or not like. (and you guys all know my preferred Genre is Horror, although on occasion even I will relent and watch a comedy!)
