Bad enough to make your telephone bleed (that doesn't make sense, but neither does the film).
15 October 2011 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Based on a popular urban legend, and told with irritating scene transitions, stupid camera angles, and unnecessary fancy editing, Hit and Run tells of Mary Murdock (Laura Breckenridge), a sexy college student who, after a drunken night out, runs down a virtually psychotic bipolar kindergarten teacher who doesn't take kindly to being turned into a hood ornament for her SUV.

I don't know whether Hit and Run is a tongue-in-cheek attempt at tackling a formulaic premise by taking matters to the extreme, or whether the director was actually trying to make a seriously scary horror. Your guess is as good as mine.

If director Enda McCallion was aiming to be as outrageously daft as possible, logic be damned, then his film just doesn't go far enough to make his intentions clear. The majority of the action is so dumb that one can only presume that McCallion is having a laugh at our expense, but then there's the bits seemingly played straight that leave a nagging doubt at the back of the mind... perhaps this is actually meant to frighten us as opposed to making us laugh.

Thank heavens then for gorgeous star Breckenridge, who makes the whole sorry thing bearable, no matter how awful it gets; she may be asked to perform some pretty stupid stuff, her character clearly in short supply of brain cells, but she does so in a really tight vest, gets rained on a lot, and is frequently splashed with blood and mud. I don't know about you, but a hot girl in tight wet clothes with her cleavage constantly on display goes a long way to making any film more bearable.
