Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Dax Shepard takes over creative control for his latest film Hit & Run, in which he stars, directs and writes. The film was also co-directed by David Palmer, but from start to finish Hit & Run certainly feels less like its own creation and more like a rip-off of much better romance-on-the-run flicks like the late Tony Scott‘s True Romance. It features everything from the quirky dialogue to the musical cues that keep replaying throughout the film. The problem Hit & Run smacks into is the lack of chemistry between the leads, its co-stars and even its cameo appearances. Nothing gels, instead everything feels forced together like sandpaper and bare skin."
