Dax Shepard certainly has his own brand of cool and his own idea of what comedy is. His latest directorial effort Hit & Run (co-directed with David Palmer) tries to play freely and wildly, but doesn’t quite pan out. It’s mostly harmless and sort of entertaining because of Tom Arnold’s freak-outs and Bradley Cooper‘s weird hair, but not once does the film’s core characters, played by Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, give you anything to root for.
It’s messy, with some redeeming qualities. It was shot on the super cheap end though, so don’t expect much crying from Shepard and the bunch.
Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:
Hit & Run has a clear, entertaining vision and is made with a strong, unique voice, something missing from too many films these days. It is not quite a great film, but it is a very good one, and I absolutely recommend it as one of the most satisfying cinematic experiences of the summer.
I really wish I could have the same things to say about the film, but perhaps the eventual Blu release will change my blackened heart?
