Dated comedy a little hit & miss.

HIT & RUN 100mins 15 5 MTV comedian Dax Shepard writes, directs and stars in a patchy black comedy along with his real-life squeeze Kristen Bell.

o He plays the dishevelled Charlie Bronson, who lives in Nowheresville, USA, after going into a witness-protection programme.

His past returns to haunt him, however, when he drives his girlfriend Annie (Bell) for a once-in-a-lifetime job interview in LA, which just happens to be home to the criminals he double-crossed.

Also starring a dreadlocked Bradley Cooper, this is one of those gimmicky, talky crime dramas that flooded video shops in the mid-90s as every director and his dog attempted to cash in on the hip crime dramas of Quentin Tarantino.

Needless to say, if you hired this for two quid from Blockbuster 20 years back, you'd be reasonably happy.

Nowadays, it just won't do.
