Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara star in this road trip action comedy about an uptight cop and a federal witness on the run from both gangsters and the police after an unfortunate mixup. Extras on the Blu-ray include a piece on Witherspoon and Vergara’s chemistry, a video of the two attempting to speak each other’s language, a gag reel, and an alternate ending.
