By Jessica Smith When couples move in together they often find out that their partner isn't the person they originally thought they were. You might be taken by surprise when you realize they're OCD about the dishes or they're a control freak when it comes to their possessions, but none of that compares to finding out that your partner is a member of the Witness Protection Program because they have a dirty past. Kristen Bell's character Annie handles the element of surprise like most women would - she panics. Hit and Run is an action rom-com that will keep you guessing and definitely have you laughing. The film was written by funny man Dax Shepard who also stars as Charlie, the ex-bank-robber-getaway-driver-boyfriend, who does his best to protect Annie when she's caught up in his mess. While you watch Charlie try to untangle the issues of his past, you might have to deal with seeing ladies man Bradley Cooper as a bad boy with some pretty bad dreads. In between the two hunks taking shots at each other, their bickering back and forth like an old married couple is the perfect comic relief. ...we know you're intrigued. Click here to read more.
