Chicago – Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are an awfully cute couple. Their effortless puppy-dog chemistry is sweet without being cloying and endearing without verging into treacle. Resembling a more stretched-out and irreverent Zach Braff, Shepard makes Bell appear more at ease than she ever has before on film. I can’t imagine a better pairing for a romantic comedy.
How sad that these real-life lovebirds decided to make their debut in “Hit & Run,” an alleged comedy so pitifully devoid of laughter that it drains the viewer of every last ounce of merriment. It’s the sort of shrill, pratfall-laden junk that passed for entertainment back when the Hazzard cousins’ General Lee cheerfully soared into oblivion. If car chases, blood-spattered slapstick and humorous homophobic tirades sound like an appealing combination, then writer/co-director Shepard has made a movie for you.
Blu-ray Rating: 1.0/5.0
For everyone else, “Hit & Run” is an unbearably tedious »
