"Charlie Bronson is a nice guy with a questionable past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to deliver his fiance to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds...and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie's former pals, a band of gangsters, enter the fray."
Movie type: Romantic Action Comedy - This is a formula action comedy that should please fans of star/writer/co-director Dax Shepard and his leading lady Kristen Bell. Other recognizable faces such as Bradley Cooper and Tom Arnold have smaller supporting roles. Sex humor, violence, and constant strong language make this film inappropriate for children.
Director: Dax Shepard, David Palmer
Script: Dax Shepard
Starring: Dax Shepard (Charlie Bronson), Kristen Bell (Annie), Michael Rosenbaum (Gil)
Length: 1 hr. 40 min.
Berardinelli, Internet Critic: “Below Average A slow, meandering misfire of a movie,...”
Roger Ebert: “Very Good ...the movie is ever so much better than a film titled "Hit & Run" has any right to be.”
USA Today: “Good The action-packed rom-com hinges on the likability of the low-key Shepard and the bubbly Bell, and their connection has a fresh, winning charm.”
Chicago Tribune: “Below Average 'Hit & Run' is pretty rancid as comedy. Worse, the chases are strictly amateur hour, all shortcut editing and no gut satisfaction.”
