From the producer of Wedding Crashers--written and directed by and starring comic talent Dax Shepard (NBC's "Parenthood") HIT AND RUN is the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to deliver his fiance (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds (led by Tom Arnold)... and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie's former pals, a band of gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper), enter the fray.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The trouble with Hit & Run is that it can't sustain its trippy effervescence. Despite a few scrappy twists and turns, it's ultimately a dead end.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 08.23.2012
Hit and Run lures you in with its jackalope rhythms. There's nothing else like it on the current landscape.Stephanie Zacharek, NPR, 08.23.2012
Shepard and Palmer just don't do anything terribly exciting with the film's vehicles, drawn mostly from Shepard's personal collection.Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 08.23.2012
Dax Shephard has a really attractive presence on screen and he's terrific in this.Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia), 09.06.2012
