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.
| Original Score: B-
Hit & Run may stall early and often, but the Bell/Shepard screen chemistry serves as a nitrous boost.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I'll be darned if I didn't like the characters. They're fun, often unpredictable and reasonably humorous.
| Original Score: C
Hit and Run has a bouncy, goofy charm.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's highly entertaining with cameos by several of the director's pals and pit stops for delivering sub-Tarantino dialogue.
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.
This whipsmart postmodern rom-com caper rides a fine line between road - and date - movie.
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
Hit & Run is perfect late-night TV fodder.
If Hit & Run is guilty of being generic, it's arguably the best kind of generic: inoffensive, well made and probably a lot more fun than Joe Critic is likely to admit.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
... a wacky trailer-trash farce ...
Lurching from picket-fence sweetness to road-trip screwball comedy, it's a hit-and-miss affair that's largely forgettable, save for its pairing of Shepherd and Bell.
Hit & Run has a clear, entertaining vision and is made with a strong, unique voice, something missing from too many films these days.
| Original Score: 8/10
The wafer-thin story...is little more than an excuse for a series of nifty chase sequences and comic interludes, all mounted with the kind of fizzy enthusiasm essential for an inconsequential, enjoyable road movie lark to work.
With some likeable characters and a script that mixes laughs and charm, 'Hit and Run' is well worth a watch.
While Hit & Run isn't going to be on any best of the year lists, it is a very good example of making a solid film in a tight time-frame.
Dax Shephard has a really attractive presence on screen and he's terrific in this.
It's funny without trying too hard to be funny. There are some intelligent, level-headed exchanges in the car between Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell that are Seinfeld-esque.
| Original Score: A-
