Storyline:
“Hit And Run” is a comedy about a young couple (‘Kristen Bell’ and Dax Shepard) that risks it all when they leave their small town life and embark on a road trip that may lead them towards the opportunity of a lifetime. Their fast-paced road trip grows awkwardly complicated and hilarious when they are chased by a friend from the past (‘Bradley Cooper’ ), a federal marshal (‘Tom Arnold’ ) and a band of misfits.

One review

  • Hit and Run isn’t necessarily a bad movie, but it’s really not that wonderful either, it’s got so much talent, both leads have been hysterical in previous things, but in this movie not so much, Kristen Bell is OK but she seems totally wasted in this role, you’d never know that her boyfriend wrote it for her, and Dax Shepard is just a little annoying. However the best parts of this movie are the short scenes with Kristin Chenoweth, as usual she makes herself known in a tiny role, the only times I found this film remotely funny were the scenes she’s in, and Bradley Cooper has a couple of good scenes.

    The storyline itself is a little weird, the title hit and run doesn’t match the story, not once in this movie is there a hit and run, it’s car chases without the Death Proof wow factor, most probably due to the small budget. At times I was a little bored, some scenes are just strangely placed, and some are just slow. It’s not all bad, the cars are pretty cool, the soundtrack is very different and offbeat and it doesn’t go for too long. Fans of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard will probably love seeing them together on screen, but for me it was just a tad disappointing.

    Not awful, but not as good as the trailer may have you think. 🙁
