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

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.
