What makes Hit and Runway uniquely fun, however, is the unapologetic extent to which Livingston and Cohen turn it into an index of beloved Woody-isms.

L.A. Weekly
Surprisingly smart film.

Los Angeles Times
A little gem, a sparkling comedy with serious undertones about friendship, self-discovery and artistic integrity.

New York Daily News
Does have a sort of endearing, earnest charm. But it would take much more than good intentions to save a film that rehashes cliches and concepts so unabashedly.

Boston Globe
A mildly diverting gay-straight odd couple comedy that has just enough bright one-liners to carry it past its plot structuring.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Individual moments in Hit and Runway are quite funny, but as a send-up of action-movie mindlessness, the movie is sometimes as dumb as its targets.

For a little while, comedy ensues.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Predictable and agonizingly politically correct.
50
Crams more subplots, minor characters and comic situations into 100 minutes than most sitcoms burn through in an entire season. And that's not necessarily a good thing.
30
The fictionalization of their journey is simply not that engrossing, nor are their alter egos, with their tightly scripted character arcs.
