Hit & Run

Directors: David Palmer and Dax Shepard
Writers: Dax Shepard with David Palmer
Released: August 2012

Well. It wasn’t bad. I mean, I wasn’t exactly expecting a lot after seeing the trailer, but it wasn’t as terrible as it made it out to be.

There were are few funny parts, but they were few and far between.The actors were good though, and the car chase scenes were pretty awesome. But, I swear the producers had a check list:

Good looking people: check!

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell. (You know, I thought these two had great chemistry – turns out they’re dating in real life)

Fast cars: check!

Guns: check!

Storyline: n/a

At the end of the film, we wondered where the conflict actually was, since it seemed like the ‘absolute low’ was not that much below the climax. It was just a series of unfortunate events that led to a pleasant resolution.

But the parts that were funny made up for some of the lame scenes/humour  as well as the unbelievable gun fights… But this was a comedy so realism isn’t exactly on the top of the list anyway, I guess.

An easy to watch and entertaining movie. Probably not worth seeing twice or buying the dvd since it would take me 10 seconds to recite the storyline after one viewing (including the five minutes I missed when I fell asleep). But, you know. It was okay.

Jodie’s rating: 5/10
