Wild trailer for Hit and Run with Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell, and Bradley Cooper hits

May. 15, 2012by: Paul Shirey

I'm really not sure what to make of this trailer for HIT AND RUN, the new action comedy from Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell, Bradley Cooper, David Koechner, Micheal Rosenbaum, Kristen Chenoweth, and Tom Arnold.  On one hand it looks like it could be a lot of fun.  On the other, it could easily be a formulaic "one off." 

Hitch a ride:

The plot is pretty simple: Former getaway driver Charlie Bronson (Shepard) jeopardizes his Witness Protection Plan identity in order to help his girlfriend (Bell) get to Los Angeles. The feds (Arnold) and Charlie's former gang (Cooper) chase them on the road.

Dax Shepard is a likeable guy and Kristen Bell is sexy as hell, so their combination is fine.  Bradley Cooper with dreadlocks and tinted sunglasses seems like it's trying too hard to be Bradley Cooper with dreadlocks and tinted sunglesses.  Who knows, maybe he'll be awesome in the role.  Or embarrased. 

Tom Arnold can be a lot of fun as well, but he's not always firing on all cylinders.  This is a tough one to peg as it feels like it's got all the right elements, but I'm just not sold yet.  It'll take an R-rating and a red-band trailer to sell me a ticket on this one.

I'm kind of stumped.  What do you guys think?

Extra Tidbit: Dax Shepard has done fairly well for himself post Punk'd with roles in Parenthood and Baby Mama. Kristen Bell has done well for herself wearing a pink bikini in Forgetting Sarah Marshall after Veronica Mars. Everyone has their own measure of success.

Dax and Kristen have been dating for a long time. Their onscreen chemistry ought to be genuine.

Looks funny

As long as those weren't the funniest/only funny parts of the movie, and it isn't a convoluted train-wreck of a plot, we should be good to go.

I like it, and it's great that Dax and Kristen are onscreen together. It has kind of an indie feel, which is refreshing for an action comedy. Bradley Cooper could be interesting as a villain. Also, more Michael Rosenbaum please!

Dax Shepard is like likable? As in, you'd like to punch him in the nose, I hope you mean.

This could go either way but I'm sure if Bradley Cooper wasn't in this nobody would hesitate to call this DTV.

Haha, it's just 'cause I wrote this pretty late, my post and the next 2 got no reactions.

Fucking Dax Shepard has bugged since Punk'd. The fact that he's fucking Kristen Bell does not help things either.

remove Dax Shepard, and you've got no script, no male lead, and half of the direction is gone. Sounds like the next Underworld sequel.
