'Hit & Run' Reviews, 'Thunderstruck,' 'The Apparition,' Owl City & More: The Week In Ouch

Posted: Updated:

Dax Shepard's "Hit & Run" received an interesting blend of reviews. The film, which opened Wednesday and stars Shepard, his real life fiancé Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper, seems to have been treated with kid gloves by some critics, who generally found Shepard's directorial effort to be worthy of an "A for effort."

But Rolling Stone's Peter Travers wasn't of a similar mind. "This slapstick road movie feels tossed off by people on a raunchy bender. I mean that as a good thing," his review begins. "The trouble with Hit & Run is that it can't sustain its trippy effervescence."

Elsewhere in the big screen critic-verse, Kevin Durant's turn in "Thunderstruck" got a stamp of disapproval and "The Apparition," a horror film you probably shouldn't see this weekend, sits at just about zero percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

TV fared a bit better, though Sunday's finale of "The Newsroom" is sure to spark some negative review one-upping among surly critics. But one show is getting panned right out the bat: GSN's "American Bible Challenge," which seems to be just about what it sounds like.

In the music world, Owl City and Yeasayer didn't especially please music writers.

Which critics were on the mark? Who should ease up? Take a look at the reviews below and let us know what you think in the comments.
