'Hit and Run' is a Comedic Crime

Bad acting, clunky car chase scenes, saucy language and perverted violence are all ways to describe this week's movie.

'Hit and Run' is a Comedic Crime

Dax Shepard plays a reformed bank robber living with his girlfriend and real-life fiance Kristen Bell. When they go on a trip to L.A. for a job interview the fun begins in "Hit and Run."

The two are being followed by Tom Arnold, an official overseeing Shepard's Witness Protection Progam, and they are also being stalked by Bradley Cooper, who plays a lowlife in desperate need of some confiscated property.

This car chase flick is not for the easily offended. In fact, just about everyone, on some level, should be offended. This brand of comedy is not even slapstick; it's just vicious in nature.

If you are a huge fan of muscle cars, you may find this film amusing. But it is still questionable with the price of admission. The Flick-O-Meter gives "Hit and Run" a two out of five. The chase scenes are amateur at best; acting is below par and the comedy, well, it's pretty rancid. That's just how I see it.
