Hit and Run

JOY REVIEW

Hit and Run is written, directed, and stars Dax Shepherd and Kristen Bell. It also has Tom Arnold in it and Bradley Cooper. The story, such as it is, opens with a guy in bed with Kristen, who’s saying just relax. Focus. You’re perfect as you are. It turns out all is — and his name is Charles Bronson. Well it turns out he’s in the witness protection program, and he’s been overseen by an incompetent Marshall who is Tom Arnold, and she has to be in LA to get a teaching job, so he’s going to take her there.  Kristen Chenoweth plays her dean at the community college, and Bradley Cooper is the guy that Dax outted. The only reason to see this movie, as far as I’m concerned, is the car chases are so good, but I think it can be too cute. Woody Allen can pull off writing, directing, and starring in, but Dax Shepherd cannot. One star.
