year 5 day 126

movie: Hit and Run
starring: Tom Arnold, Bradley Cooper
genre: Action, Comedy
year: 2012
format: Netflix Canada

plot: A guy who is in witness protection decides to break free in order to drive his girlfriend to L.A. for a job interview, and along the way gains the attention of the people he's hiding from.

So like pretty much everything that comes out now, it's 90% done in a car. So many many pointless car chases.  The only good thing about this, is it reminded  a lot of the old Cannonball Run and Smokey and the Bandit movies.

You have a strange mix of characters, the young couple, her ex boyfriend, the criminals, and the cops who are chasing them. One of the cops, is the brother of the ex boyfriend and begins "dating" the other cop who is suppose to be the only one who knows about the witness protection. And everyone gets tangled in everyone's business.
I wanted to like this movie, I really did, but it just didn't have enough plot for me. It relied too much on the flashy cars, and cheap road gags and didn't give itself time to actually go anywhere. The best scene was the one in the grocery where Bradley Cooper's character is arguing with some guy over dog food and the treatment of his dog; before force feeding the dude the kibble.

what did I learn? White guys should never wear dreadlocks
