Hit & Run isn't always a smooth ride, but the quirks and misfires make it as distinctive as the actor behind many of the film's creative choices.

Hit & Run may stall early and often, but the Bell/Shepard screen chemistry serves as a nitrous boost.

I'll be darned if I didn't like the characters. They're fun, often unpredictable and reasonably humorous.

Hit and Run has a bouncy, goofy charm.

It's 'Smokey and the Bandit' as conceived by a Quentin Tarantino wannabe.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Shepard wrote the script and co-directed with David Palmer (Brother's Justice), constructing an ideal vehicle for the real-life couple's spirited banter.

It's highly entertaining with cameos by several of the director's pals and pit stops for delivering sub-Tarantino dialogue.

There is a lot of boring Clarksonian chatter about motorcars, but, inhibited by a modest budget, the stunts prove to be depressingly unspectacular.

Audiences out for a bit of mindless fun will probably enjoy this raucous road movie, but only if they can look past comedy that relies on jokes about racism, sexism and homophobia.

Adam Smith
Radio Times

The film's characterisation is hopelessly underdeveloped and an undercurrent of homophobia does little to make the experience any less tedious.

For a comedy the laughs are hard to find.

It's amiable, but the more miles it clocks up, the more this film looks like a vanity vehicle for its co-director, writer and star, Dax Shepard.

This whipsmart postmodern rom-com caper rides a fine line between road - and date - movie.

Shepard's script suggests his chief pleasures in life are driving sports cars and joshing about homosexuals, and those of a similar mindset may manage to wring out more amusement from his film than I did.

Hit and Run is certainly hit and miss, but it had just about won me over by the time it ended.

Enjoyable, fast-paced comedy-thriller with well written characters, decent chase sequences, a frequently funny script and superb performances from Shepard, Bell and Bradley Cooper.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Dumb, noisy and not half as cool as it thinks it is, it's like being caught in a shouting match between half-cut rednecks at a Nascar meet.

A good-natured, if inconsequential, thrill ride. Shepard more than proves he's up to the task when it come to multitasking. It will be interesting to see what he does next time around.

More hit and miss.

There's the suggestion of a good comedy filmmaker here, but in trying out too many genres in one film Shepard winds up with something that never settles or fully engages.
