Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Hit & Run is an action comedy that includes brief full-frontal nudity, drug use, violence, and extremely strong language -- all of which make it inappropriate for young teens. The language is pervasive -- nearly every line of dialogue contains a "f--k" or "s--t," and there are some potentially offensive comments about rape and ethnicity. In two brief scenes, the audience sees a group of seniors completely naked (an orgy is implied but not shown), but otherwise the sexuality is more PG-13 than R (some passionate kissing, conversations in bed, a reference to a massage having a "happy ending" and discussions of sexual orientation). Violence includes bloody hand-to-hand combat and gun use, though overall the movie's tone is light.
Full-frontal nudity of elderly men and women in two very brief scenes when characters accidentally barge into a motel room full of nude seniors apparently engaged in an orgy (though there's no sexual activity other than lounging or standing around naked). Also romance, passionate kissing, sexual references (including "happy ending" massages), and the intimacy of a couple in love, but not any actual sex.
Several mentions of rape are made in an off-hand manner, including an extended, uncomfortable conversation about prison sodomy and a casual, almost comical reference to alcohol-fueled date-rape. The dialogue makes it seem like rape can be a funny subject. A U.S. Marshal with terrible aim has a gun that goes off easily. A couple of bloody hand-to-hand encounters: One nose-breaking results in a blood-splattered face and shirt, another guy is temporarily knocked unconscious, and a third guy is dragged by a dog collar. One man is shot in the shoulder, and another is continuously punched in the face. Lots of scrapes and bruises for the main characters, but no one is killed.
Nearly every line of dialogue contains strong language, particularly "f--k" (100+ uses). Also "s--t," "bitch," "d--k," "p---y," "a--hole," "damn," "prick," "t-ts," "hell," "oh my God," "goddamn," and a ton of euphemisms for sex acts. In one discussion, different kinds of men are talked about in a potentially offensive manner.
Amid the movie's chaos and over-the-top content are worthwhile lessons about honesty, unconditional love, and changing your life.
