Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell star in this hilarious, non-stop action-packed comedy costarring Bradley Cooper, Kristin Chenoweth and Tom Arnold. A nice guy with a questionable past, Charlie Bronson (Shepard), risks everything when he busts out of a witness protection program to drive his girlfriend (Bell) to Los Angeles for the job opportunity of a lifetime. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, however, when they’re chased by an inept fed (Arnold) and Charlie’s ex-pal (Cooper), a vengeance-crazed criminal he helped put behind bars. Hit & Run is a high-speed race to the finish where the brakes are off and the chase is on.

Critics Consensus: Though Hit & Run has some surprisingly oft-kilter filmmaking, the action doesn't add to much and the writing's a bit smug.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hit & Run is an action comedy that includes brief full-frontal nudity, drug use, violence, and extremely strong language -- all of which make it inappropriate for young teens. The language is pervasive -- nearly every line of dialogue contains a "f--k" or "s--t," and there are some potentially offensive comments about rape and ethnicity. In two brief scenes, the audience sees a group of seniors completely naked (an orgy is implied but not shown), but otherwise the sexuality is more PG-13 than R (some passionate kissing, conversations in bed, a reference to a massage having a "happy ending" and discussions of sexual orientation). Violence includes bloody hand-to-hand combat and gun use, though overall the movie's tone is light.
