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.

Shoot-outs, lovers on the lam, a villain with dreadlocks: yes, this hit-and miss comedy sure does want to be True Romance.

If you're a fan of the leads, the movie will deliver the charm but for hardcore fans of action comedy, this will more likely be a 'hit it and forget it' experience.

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.

... 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
September 7, 2012
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.

In Hit & Run the talk is better than the torque.

Hit and Run sets out to be crass and compassionate by turns, but Shepard's inexperience as a writer is obvious throughout: the structure is as wobbly as the tone.

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.

Normally it'd be an insult to say the most interesting thing about a movie is one of the actor's do's, but seriously, you've got to see this thing sitting on Cooper's head.

Constantly catching us by surprise and endlessly tickling our sense of humour, Hit and Run is one of this year's hits - so run and see it

This wacky, vibrant film has HIT written all over it and the talented Shepard manages to makes it fresh; a little like the first Hangover film, leaving us with nothing but a broad smile and a lust for life

Bell's usual comic flintiness goes soft as she moons over Shepard, while he makes liberal use of his puppy-dog eyes and "What, me worry?" demeanor.
| Original Score: 2/10

Hit and Run goes Nowhere Slow.
