A former getaway driver (screenwriter and co-director Dax Shepard) in witness protection has to high tail it on his own, with his girlfriend (Shepard’s real-life spouse Kristen Bell) in tow, once his old gang (led by a dreadlocked Bradley Cooper) comes a-knocking, seeking a secret stash of money from their last heist.
Shepard is known for over-the-top craziness in terms of his character portrayals, but he’s also a bit of a gear head, so maybe his car love will help him channel his wild side and give this comedic Fast & Furious knock-off sturdy wings so that it can fly like an eagle. Now in theaters. (R) Not screened for review
