Hit & Run

Rated R 100 min. 2012

Hit & Run (R) What is there possibly to say about Hit & Run? After noting that it is probably the most negligible and disposable film of the year, where can you go — other than to some other movie? I hate being so down on this movie. I mean, next week when The Oogieloves opens, this'll probably look pretty good. And Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are just so darn cute that disliking their stupid little movie feels like being mean to kittens. I'm sorry, but cute only goes so far — and this movie goes much farther and for far too long. For the record, there's a story of a sort. Dax Shepard is Charles Bronson (an assumed name, of course), who in reality is Yul Perkins, a getaway driver living in a sleepy little town under the witness protection program ever since he turned state's evidence on his bank robbing compatriots. He has a singularly inept keeper, Randy (Tom Arnold), who has a problem with his gun going off and forgetting to put cars in park. He also has a girlfriend, Annie (Kristen Bell), who lands her dream job, which is unfortunately in Los Angeles. Throwing caution to the winds, Yul goes AWOL with her. Unfortunately, not only is Randy in pursuit, but also Annie's ex, who has discovered Yul's true identity and past. Naturally, he tips off Yul's former associates, especially Alex (Bradley Cooper), who not only wants the hidden money they stole, but a certain amount of revenge over having been raped in jail. Much fast driving ensues. And that's pretty much it. It's fitfully amusing, I guess, but easily passed up without missing much. —Justin Souther
