The most recent WWE Studios release Christmas Bounty is a made for TV movie starring The Miz. The story centers around a former bounty hunter named Tory Bell played by Francia Raisa(The Secret Life of the American Teenager) who is trying to start a new life as a school teacher. Tory is from a family of bounty hunters whom also employee her ex-boyfriend played by The Miz. Trying to hide her bounty hunter past she is has to return home to settle an old score. While doing this her old and new lives come together. The movie was produced for ABC Family and originally aired on November 26th, 2013.
The movie itself is not okay and actually starts off okay but progressively goes down. Not that I was expecting a thriller with lots of plot twist but this movie lacked in the story department. The actors did a solid job with what there were given. The plot followed a predictable format of the new life and old friends coming together. The new boyfriend and old boyfriend love triangle was present in story also. The Bell family is from Trenton, NJ in the story and for some reason every person back home talked as if they were in a “Jersey Shore” episode. Long story short you can watch any other generic holiday movie and get the same feel as you do in the “Bounty”.
