Hit and Run

In this flaccid action comedy, a former getaway driver (Dax Shepard) ditches his witness protection program to drive his girlfriend (Kristen Bell) to LA for a job interview, and they get chased by bad guys along the way. Much of the dialogue sounds unscripted, but not in a good way; during the longer scenes the actors often seem to be grasping for ideas. This is neither funny nor suspenseful, but it does feature some cool-looking cars, and Tom Arnold delivers some decent pratfalls as an accident-prone man. Shepard wrote the script and codirected with David Palmer.
