Dax, Please write/direct another movie (by chromewaves354)
I've never reviewed a movie before but had to for Hit & Run. My wife and I feel like we just got home from a perfect first date. This is just a feel good movie that leaves you feeling great hours after watching it. Armed with only $2 million and some friends, Dax created the perfect movie experience: non stop laughing, edge of your seat fun, hot car chase scenes, great music, perfect casting, style and swagger, all wrapped up in a watchable story.Dax, please write/direct/star in another movie soon...Hollywood needs to learn that talent trumps big budget any day of the week. And please <more>
We just saw this movie at a screening at Los Angeles Film School, and o boy it was GOOD. The audience were on fire throughout the movie. I will try to talk about the movie without any spoilers although I marked the warning anyway.Even though at the school where the movie was screened the sound quality was much lower than your average AMC, picture size was a bit small for the size of the theater and seats were a bit uncomfortable with no cup holder, the audience seemed to be enjoying themselves and being captivated by the movie. My wife and I loved it.The movie is intense and fun, I think of <more>
it as a cross between the intensely comedic side of Horrible Bosses/Hangover type of comedy and the intensity of Drive/Crash but not as serious but in a more fun comedic way.
I saw the preview for this movie in Cincinnati tonight. There were very few people there and I feared that was a sign of how bad the movie would be. I was so wrong. This was BY FAR the best movie I've ever seen. Even better than Pretty Woman. And, being a 30-something year old woman, that definitely says a lot. I don't watch a lot of movies and the only reason I saw this is because the passes were free, but I can honestly say that the "no name" cast I read that in another review completely outdid themselves and this was a hit. From the second that the movie started to the <more>
ending and even past the credits , I was completely hooked and the entire audience was engaged throughout the entire movie. I strongly suggest that everyone see this movie.
One of the Best Movies of the Year (by deltajvliet)
This is a creative, original, funny, and action packed story, a wonderful example of independent filmmaking. Dax Shepard was able to get away with a $2 million budget by recruiting friends like Bradley Cooper and real life GF Kristen Bell to act. The other main characters, the cars, were largely his own.The film has a True Romance feel, only infused into a chase movie. The action set-pieces are fantastic. Simple, beautiful, effective. Slow motion burnouts, lovingly filmed, fish tails, even one or two stunt jumps. And I'm 99% sure there was no CGI at any point. Just good old fashioned <more>
fast cars going fast. Seriously. Think of the last 10 minutes of Death Proof extended to half a movie.I didn't know Shepard before this, but he's a funny guy. In his writing, in his content, in his delivery. At one point a redneck onlooker struts up to his prized Lincoln Continental and asks if it has nitrous. Dax's character Charlie matter of factly tells him, "Nitrous is for fags. This has cubic inches," then drives away. But it's more than just dialogue. Like when a wannabe tough guy bottoms out his Pontiac Solstice leaving the driveway. Sometimes it's the subtle things.The movie got no marketing, and hardly anyone knows it's even in theaters. Too bad. This is a hidden gem, required viewing for fans of chase movies.9/10
'HIT AND RUN': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five A romantic comedy/car chase action film written and co-directed by Dax Shepard along with his buddy David Palmer; the two also co-directed the 2010 Dax Shepard scripted comedy 'BROTHER'S JUSTICE' . The movie co-stars Shepard's real life girlfriend Kristen Bell and a bunch of his friends including Bradley Cooper, Tom Arnold, Michael Rosenbaum, Kristin Chenoweth and Jess Rowland who all did the movie for scale, allowing it to be made for just $2 million. Due to the film's extremely low budget it's made a <more>
decent profit despite a seemingly otherwise lackluster box office performance. It's a pity that more people aren't eager to see the film because it's a surprisingly good time at the movies with a little bit of something for everyone! Shepard plays Yul Perkins, a former getaway driver who's been living under Witness Protection by the name Charles Bronson for four years with his beautiful girlfriend Annie Bean Bell . When Annie gets a job offer in Los Angeles that's too good to refuse the two decide to move there together, forcing Yul to leave the Witness Protection Program and put himself in danger by returning home. This catches the attention of his former gang, lead by Alex Cooper , who want revenge for Yul testifying against them. They soon find themselves being chased by Yul's old gang as well as Annie's obsessed ex-boyfriend Rosenbaum and the bumbling federal marshal Arnold assigned to protect Yul.The movie is a lot better than it looks or sounds; it's packed with clever hilarious dialogue and some pretty cool car chases. The characters are all nicely developed and every performance is topnotch. Tom Arnold hasn't been this funny in a movie since 'TRUE LIES', Bradley Cooper is hilarious in his supporting role and Shepard proves he has what it takes for leading man material. I've been a fan of Kristen Bell's since 'FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL' and here she's back to doing smart and clever romcom as opposed to the trashy clichéd crap she's normally stuck with. Shepard and Palmer's directing is perfectly fitting for the material and the script is beautifully subtle and hilarious. It's also a really sweet and touching romance; Shepard and Bell do make a good couple and have beautiful chemistry together. That's why the movie does have a little something for everyone; it's the perfect date movie. It's too bad people don't make more of an effort to see quality entertainment like this.Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v JE8W7gz6XHo
Exciting, hilarious, and the kind of surreal depth of character I really like (by bopdog)
Very good time at the movies!!! I was very pleasantly surprised. I kind of expected "The Hangover On Wheels." It was absolutely not in that genre. This movie is artful I know, but I had to say it . It's clearly a bit eccentric- reminded me of a Wes Anderson movie. I hasten to add it is not in a Wes Anderson style, particularly- it had its own freshness and its own vision and soul. But if I had to compare it to anything- I'd say an Anderson-ish vibe.I avoided seeing this at first, after seeing the trailer. I think the trailer guy mis-judged his audience- he went for the <more>
grossest and most disgusting bits and slapped those in the trailer. As it was- the trailer contained virtually ALL of the gross-out bits. And in the context of the movie, they were not bad at all. Quick flashes on the screen- meant something only as a flash in the story- then BAM! They were gone.Kristen Bell has always been a doll. Babe with a soul. Tom Arnold was excellent. I have always felt he was a much better actor than he got credit for. perhaps with this movie he will get some proper recognition for his genuine talent.The supporting cast here all did splendidly. The "Pouncer" gay-finding app was realistic enough to play as part of the story, while being funny at times.I laughed out loud a few times- but did not go in expecting this to be a comedy. And I don't think it properly is a comedy- at least not in the modern sense. Happy ending- yes. Predictable? No way- the story unfolded in a way that was surprising, original, and more like life that is, a surreal life feels. It wasn't strictly "realistic," but it FELT "real" somehow.Good job Dax Whathisname! And Miss Bell and the others. Oh- it was a delight to see the aptly cast Beau Bridges doing what he seems to do best in his old age. he was a great dad here, and a great presence. Overall- go see it- you'll be happy!
If I really paid attention to some stuffy movie critics I'd probably never see another movie in my life. Reviews riddled with technical jargon like screenplay this, and protagonist that bore me immensely when I just want to know, "will I regret paying $6-12 for the movie?". With that being said let me tell you where I am coming from, the perspective of a good ole regular 30 year old black lady who watches more television then they should, and enjoys going to the movies at noon because at that time I don't have to worry about some jack ass propping their feet on the back of <more>
my chair. and I can lay down across 3 seats .Now to the task at hand, what did I think about Hit & Run? I thought is was a good movie, I was entertained and did not regret purchasing the movie ticket. OK, Whats the Movie About? Charlie is a self-named member of the witness protection program, hiding out in a small rural town where he enjoys a simple life of love, and days spent worrying over his buffoonish handler, Randy Tom Arnold . Charlie's happy world begins to crack when Annie is offered a job developing her own curriculum at a university in Los Angeles – the home of Charlie's criminal past, and a lot of bad people who want to get even with him.Trying to prove his love, Charlie dusts off his bad boy muscle car and scoops Annie for a high-speed run to her LA job interview. But when Annie's jealous ex-boyfriend Gil Michael Rosenbaum tries to undermine the happy exodus, he unwittingly brings down all the wrong kind of heat on the situation. Before long, Charlie and Annie's road trip is a high-speed chase, complete with shootouts, buried treasure, and a dune buggy.Dax Shepard is funny to me, and so is Kristen Bell. The fact that Dax and Kristen are a couple made their characters Charlie and Annie in the movie have a charming chemistry that you can only get by smashing having sex in real life. Being a lover of classic cars just seeing that classic Lincoln rev around spoke to my soul. Dax wore rugged, outlaw, bad-ass with a gentle side, pretty well. So well that he transcended from this lanky quirky white guy, to "hey, how you doin". Also, This movie just made it official that it's impossible for Bradley Cooper to be unattractive, even with a dredlock wig, and some played out Oakley's, we was still looking' good. Yada yada yada yada...blah blah blah blah.... I like the movie.
Not that many ratings yet, but how can this movie have a 6.1?? Serious? I saw it in the sneak preview yesterday and had some great laughs, certain parts are hilarious. Best of all, didn't knew anything about this movie, so wasn't expecting anything... Turned out to be one of my better movies this year so far! Some titles are hyped, like Batman The Dark Knight Rises, and although I enjoyed it, this movie messed up my emotions way more!The acting of the whole cast suits the flow and spirit of this movie perfectly. Furthermore, I think Dax Shepard did an outstanding job being both the <more>
I don't often write reviews so I'll keep this short. I watched this expecting nothing more than something to waste a couple of hours.It ended up being a real fun couple of hours though. Clever script work..great character chemistry & fantastic musical score.I watched this with my wife who is very hard to please and she was also pleasantly surprised. I'm not saying this should win any awards but I am saying for those of you who don't take every film you watch too seriously .. it's a pretty cool little movie . Dax Shepard should give himself a pat on the back for <more>
this.For a movie with a small budget it manages to assemble a great cast and give more bang for your buck than many big studios deliver.
