HIT & RUN

HIT & RUN – FUNNIER THAN EXPECTED

HOME RUN, Pick up a full price ticket

Watching trailers sometimes, you just never know exactly what your going to get. Here we thought we were in for an action/romance oriented film with a little comedy and to our surprise we got a comedy with some romance and action thrown in.

Charlie Bronson (Dax Shepard) is a ex getaway driver in the witness protection program. While in hiding, Charlie meets the love of his life Annie played by Kristen Bell. Comfortable living the simple life, Annie gets offered her dream job in California. Unfortunately, California is exactly where Charlie had his troubles. His love for Annie forces him to put his fears behind him and risk meeting his ex friends who want to kill him and get the money he owes them.

We figured with Tom Arnold playing a prominent role in the film, that there would be some funny moments, but we found ourselves laughing pretty much the whole movie. Were not talking slap stick jokes either. We are talking natural comedy which seemed to flow with the storyline.

The chase scenes and the romantic banter between the lead characters was entertaining, but the comedy definitely stole the show. This isn’t a film we would say run out and see on the release day, but its worthy of grabbing your significant other and going out for a good dinner and a movie on your next date night.

This is a home run, so you won’t regret spending your money here.

THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT-WE’RE NOT IN LOVE WITH THIS MOVIE

No Need to Rush Down the Aisle for This One-It’s Not Worth A Full Price Ticket

We all know a couple that has been engaged forever—time passes by and we wonder when or if they will ever get married. “Five Year Engagement” written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, who also directed the movie; is a romantic comedy that follows a couple’s relationship journey and possible trip down the road of matrimony.

The movie begins with Tom (Jason Segel) proposing to his girlfriend Violet’s (Emily Blunt). The San Francisco couple’s engagement is postponed after Violet is offered a fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Along with their co-stars Alison Brie who plays Violet’s sister Suzie and Chris Pratt as Tom’s best friend Alex, the chemistry of the cast make this movie tolerable.

The movie explores several relationship issues with the most prominent one being the impact of compromises made by a mate in a relationship to please the other person. The writers do a fairly decent job of capturing the anxiety faced by many engaged couples without slamming overused cliches’ down your throat.

Just like some weddings, this movie is long and drags on forever. Towards the middle we were wondering when it would end. There are quite a few funny moments in the movie, but the movie is just ok.

This is the type of movie you see when the movie you really want to see is sold out. Catch this at a matinee or wait for it on DVD.
