Hit and Run is a comedy about a young couple (Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard) that risks it all when they leave their small town life and embark on a road trip that may lead them towards the opportunity of a lifetime. Their fast-paced road trip grows awkwardly complicated and hilarious when they are chased by a friend from the past (Bradley Cooper), a federal marshal (Tom Arnold) and a band of misfits. -- (C) Open Road

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The worst."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"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
"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."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Hit and Run has a bouncy, goofy charm."
‑ CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
"There is a lot of boring Clarksonian chatter about motorcars, but, inhibited by a modest budget, the stunts prove to be depressingly unspectacular."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"Hit & Run as a whole is one of the summer's most enjoyable surprises, a consistently disarming romantic comedy..."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"It feels like writer, co-director and star Dax Shepard has unleashed some kind of freakish Franken-film on movie-goers."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"Hit & Run may stall early and often, but the Bell/Shepard screen chemistry serves as a nitrous boost."
‑ Christian Toto, Big Hollywood
"It's 'Smokey and the Bandit' as conceived by a Quentin Tarantino wannabe."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"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."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"Hit & Run is awfully hit & miss."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Hit and Run lures you in with its jackalope rhythms. There's nothing else like it on the current landscape."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, NPR
"I'll be darned if I didn't like the characters. They're fun, often unpredictable and reasonably humorous."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"It's highly entertaining with cameos by several of the director's pals and pit stops for delivering sub-Tarantino dialogue."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The film's characterisation is hopelessly underdeveloped and an undercurrent of homophobia does little to make the experience any less tedious."
‑ Adam Smith, Radio Times
