Storyline

In BETTER START RUNNING, an unexpected series of events turns everyday store clerk Harley [Alex Sharp] into a wanted man - and even more unexpectedly, he finds himself on the run with the girl of his dreams (Analeigh Tipton). FBI Agent McFadden [Maria Bello] is determined to crush him and wants to teach her rookie partner [Karan Soni] how it's done. But while the agents pursue their culprit, our hero has loftier pursuits. He kidnaps his Vietnam vet grandfather [Jeremy Irons] to reunite him with the love of his life, picks up a try-hard beatnik hitchhiker [Edi Gathegi] with a secret of his own, and against all common sense follows a roadside attractions map with a mysterious history. As the agents get closer and closer with every stop, this eclectic band of misfits becomes an unlikely family, because sometimes a running start - can be a better start.

Super Quirky
27 February 2019 | by THines01See all my reviews

This movie has really likeable characters. Even the antagonists are likeable. Although unrealistic in its totality, the movie works and keeps the viewer engaged all the way to the end. It has an "indie" vibe all the way through, so expect it and enjoy it.

Better Start Running has flavors from some of my favorite movies like Napoleon Dynamite, Little Miss Sunshine, Moonrise Kingdom, and even Kalifornia. If those are in your list of favorites, don't miss this movie!
