Hit & Run review

Filed under: Movie reviews — BJ @ 10:35 am

Seen at a pre-release screening in Los Angeles:

Written, co-directed and starring Dax Shepard, this action adventure comedy has a quality cast and good pacing that keeps the indie feel away enough for it to be a fun movie. Co-starring his real-life fiance, Kristen Bell, as his high-minded girlfriend, Tom Arnold as his bumbling Witness Protection agent, Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) as Bell’s protective ex-boyfriend and Bradley Cooper as the cornrowed, tracksuit-wearing ex-gang mate, they all go on a wild California chase after the couple with enough car chases to get a boot.

The story was simple yet so good, and Cooper and Rosenbaum were awesome in their eccentric roles. If you’re looking for a solid low-key movie, check it out. It doesn’t have any fireworks, but it’s a fun time with a few giggles.

Side note: Shepard and Bell, who have a height difference of 13 inches, have been engaged for over two years. Looks like they’re on their way to a five-year engagement.

Hit & Run opens in theaters on August 24.

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

IMDb rating: n/a
What it should be: 7.0
