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.

Remember the insight and hilarity of "My Name is Earl?"
16 October 2018 | by cognicomSee all my reviews

Well, "Better Start Running" has NONE of the positive traits of that brilliantly-conceived series from a decade ago. It's more like "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure," but without Bill and Ted, and without adventure, and with absolutely NO excellence.

Utterly woeful script, acting and directing more reminiscent of a high school assignment than the substantially-funded production that it is. Irons and Seymour must really be down on their luck to take parts on in this movie.
