Hit & Run – 3 out of 5
Hit & Run sounds like either a really lame title for a Top 20 hard rock album from a band that sounds like a mixture of Nickelback, 3 Doors Down and Creed (so they sound like Nickelback) or a lame title for a cheap video game. In reality, it’s a cheap title for a action chase comedy but unlike those other possibilities I just set forth, this movie isn’t really that bad.
|Dax Shepard is a zombie right with decent skin tone, right?|
|She can non-violently resolve my conflict any day...|
screw you, I'm not really good at the sexy thing.
|Bradley Cooper's dreadlocks got their own credit...and trailer.|
This one is a great “let’s give it a shot” film that it’s not terrible and is pretty okay. It’s one of those comedies that never truly achieves lift-off and blasts into absolute hilarity (I’m not entirely sure why I went with space exploration imagery to describe a chase film) but it doesn’t come crashing down to Earth either in a fiery ball of suck (again, why the hell did I go with this analogy?). The film offers up some amusing moments—especially with Tom Arnold who hasn’t been this entertaining since True Lies—as well as some great music and chase sequences along the way.
|Arnold is on the other end of that call talking about True Lies 2.|
|The budget was so low, Arnold had to sell oranges|
out of the back of his van to help the movie...or maybe
that's just what he's doing now.
|And he added some Bateman. Just a little bit of Bateman. Makes everything sweeter.|
|"This face helps me shoot better!"|
|"Vroom, vrrrroooom, vroom!"|
Hit & Run, even with its Direct-to-DVD style title, may not have been a memorable comedy that warrants numerous repeat viewings in the future, the film is still pretty damn good. While never outright hilarious, the movie definitely has its moments.
|David Koechner collects rain water with his bottom lip. Fun fact!|
|Before this movie, I never would have suggested |
getting into a car with Shepard but now...
