      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Though Hit & Run has some surprisingly oft-kilter filmmaking, the action doesn't add to much and the writing's a bit smug. Read critic reviews

      • Mar 30, 2014

        In "Hit and Run," Annie(Kristen Bell) has an interview for a big job in Los Angeles. The only problem is her boyrfriend, Charlie Bronson(Dax Shepard, who also wrote and co-directed)is in witness protection. Despite the risks to his life, he loves her so much that he decides to drive her there himself in his custom made car. Gil(Michael Rosenbaum), Annie's ex, decides to spoil the whole thing by letting Alex Dmitri(Bradley Cooper), the violent psychopath Charlie informed on in the first place, know where exactly he will be in the near future. To be honest, "Hit and Run" should have been called Hit and Miss instead, as it can never quite decide whether it wants to be a comedy, action or romance, with Tom Arnold pretty much responsible for the comic relief.(Say what you will about 70's drive-in flicks but at least they were honest about what they were out to do.) That's not to mention all the lapses in logic or the fact that there would be no movie if Annie did not need her teaching certificate from Gil or if Alex was not on Facebook. While the car chases do not make up for any for of that, one of the three is definitely satisfying. But more would have been nice, considering all of the sweet rides on display.

        Well, once again I'm on the wrong side of this one, but I LOVED it. Saw it on a DVD from Redbox...really scraping for something to watch and I was delighted. The dialogue was so witty. The plot, okay anytime you have witness protection plan it's going to be a little contrived, but it was oddly believable and filled with some real moments. Bradley Cooper is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors--a little sexy a little sinister--Kristen Bell is the perfect perfect girlfriend and Tom Arnold was just superb. The car chases were exciting. I mean, what else do you want out of a 1.4 hour piece of entertainment?

        Alex Dimitri: Hey, hey, Clint? Why don't you think of this gun as a microphone? When it's not in your hand, you shut the fuck up. Okay? "A Comedy That Never Takes Its Foot Off The Gas" Hit & Run was somewhat of a surprise to me. When you see a movie that has Dax Shepherd not only in the leading role, but also directing and writing; it's hard to expect anything better than terrible. Surprisingly though, Dax wasn't too bad in front of the camera or behind it. The movie is nothing to get too excited about, but it's also a pretty good amount of fun and it's helped by a pretty good little supporting cast including: Kristen Bell, Tom Arnold, and Bradley Cooper.  Charlie Bronson is under witness protection. Four years ago he testified against his then friends and bank robbers, whom Yul(Charlie's original name) drove the getaway car for. When his girlfriend gets a job offer in his old home town of Los Angeles, Charlie decides to go with her. Anne's former boyfriend begins tailing them and calls up Alex(one of the people Charlie testified against) to let him know that he knows where Yul is. Also on the path of Charlie is a US Marshall who is supposed to be making sure that Charlie is all right.  It would be fair to call Hit & Run just another action comedy, which it basically is; but there's also a rom-com formula at play here too. It's sort of a cross between an action comedy, a road movie, and a romance film. Crossing those genres doesn't really bring out too much originality though, but it does make the film more interesting.  Hit & Run ended up being a fun ride, and in the end, that's all it really needed to do. This isn't a movie that you'll find a lot of purpose in watching, but it is a nice little hour and a half diversion. Also, if you're like me, the only excuse you need for giving this a try is that Bradley Cooper is in it; and with dreads no less.

        While this movie does suffer from a bit of identity crisis in that it doesn't know if it wants to be a comedy, action or a romance (yes...a romance). You can pull this off in movies. It has been done before and it will be done again. But the film doesn't really know how to mix all these genres together in a seamless matter. But I do think the film is solid and a fun to watch. There's something strange about the movie. In a good way. It doesn't feel like the cookie-cutter stuff that you're used to and I just thought that it was fun. And this might also be the best movie Tom Arnold has ever been involved in. I realize that's not saying much, but I've never found him funny at all. In this film, lo and behold, he's actually funny. I couldn't believe it but I enjoyed his character of this Marshal who always fucks things up through his own stupidity. And the rest of the cast is solid as well, it's just that Tom Arnold surprised me here. The film also has a pretty killer soundtrack and some clever dialogue. It's just a shame that all the different elements of the film didn't come together in a seamless manner because this may have even been a great film. Still, it's quite fun and definitely a solid rental.
