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.

A surprising little quirk fest
7 November 2018 | by natcalgarySee all my reviews

I went into this knowing it would a strange with b list actors and a quirky plot. I came out the end enjoying the ride very much. Even my lady who detests movies like this enjoyed it. The story was fun, the actors meshed well and the comedic moments didn't seem forced. Overall 7.1
