Spotlight: Hit And Run (Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell, Tom Arnold, Bradley Cooper)

Hit and Run is a comedy about a young couple ('Kristen Bell' and Dax Shepard) that risks it all when they leave their small town life and embark on a road trip that may lead them towards the opportunity of a lifetime. Their fast-paced road trip grows awkwardly complicated and hilarious when they are chased by a friend from the past ('Bradley Cooper'), a federal marshal ('Tom Arnold') and a band of misfits.
- Written by Open Road Films

I thought the movie would be an action by the title but the opening scene proved otherwise. The story line is pretty interesting and for a comedy it's pretty fun. When things pick up it gets pretty intense and does actually provide action entertainment. Bradley Cooper looks hilarious with dreads, but he is a badass character with a comedic twist. Dax Shepard is as funny as he usually is and Tom Arnold is also quite hysterical. In my honest opinion if they did a good job at being an action comedy, if that was what they were going for, they may have just had a little too many chase scenes and not enough talking scenes.
