Hot Pursuit Movie Quotes

Updated November 6, 2017 8.8k views10 items

Hot Pursuit movie quotes tell the comical story of one pint-sized cop tasked with protecting a drug cartel witness as they travel through Texas. The comedy was directed by Anne Fletcher using a screenplay by David Feeney and John Quaintance. Hot Pursuit opened in theaters on May 8, 2015.

In Hot Pursuit, the five-foot-nothing cop Officer Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) is ordered to deliver drug dealer widow Daniella (Sofia Vergara) to Dallas where she will testify on a trial against one of the top drug cartel cases they've seen in a while. Instantly, the two butt heads as their lifestyles, Cooper as a simple, somewhat clumsy police officer and Daniella as a high maintenance wife with a thick Latino accent.

Despite their differences, the two are forced to work together when they realize that everyone is out to get them, including the drug cartel members and corrupt cops. The comedy follows as they try to make it to Dallas alive without a car, while eluding police, the cartel and each other.

Hot Pursuit opens alongside other great May 2015 movies including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Far From the Madding Crowd, Welcome to Me, The Water Diviner and Adult Beginners.

    Officer Cooper: How much baking powder?
    Daniella: I don't know, maybe like 42 kilos.
    Truck Driver: Hey, are y'all okay? I took that turn way too fast. What the heck is tis white stuff?
    Officer Cooper and Daniella: [together] Baking powder
    Officer Cooper: We're bakers, muffins, toast, cakes.
    Truck Driver: I should call the police.
    Officer Cooper: No, I am the mother f'in police. Don't you see? There's no major damage here. You're free to go.
    Truck Driver: But I destroyed your car.
    Officer Cooper: I said you're free to go! Except, I need you to drop us off at the nearest establishment where we can buy some clothing at a reasonable price but more importantly at a reasonable price. I said that before, didn't I? This accident's just got me all jacked up.

    When their car is totaled and white powder flies in the air, Officer Cooper tries her best to talk their way out of it with the other driver. Considering she's acting a little off and talking very fast, perhaps it's not baking powder after all.
