Better Start Running

Better Start Running

TIME OUT SAYS

Sometimes twee indie comedies are heartwarming and quirky, other times they’re intolerable and annoying. Better Start Running falls somewhere in between. Maria Bello and Jeremy Irons are punching way below their weights here, among a cast of hitherto unknowns. We join two youngsters who decide to drive off into the sunset together, starting a new life. For some reason they attack their boss, meaning Bello’s FBI agent is soon on their trail. That the dim-witted duo keep stopping to take in the tourist attractions on their travels doesn’t help their getaway plan. None of the characters seem much more than ill thought-out sketches, and the action seems to veer into cartoonish too often. Paul Clifford
