Action-Comedy: A federal witness tries to get his girlfriend to a job interview, all while eluding the marshal assigned to protect him as well as the criminals who want payback for him testifying against them.
Charlie Bronson (DAX SHEPARD) is a mild-mannered guy living an unassuming life in a small California town. He hasn't seen his father, Clint (BEAU BRIDGES), or others from his past in years and that's because he's in the federal witness protection program where U.S. marshal Randy Anderson (TOM ARNOLD) has been assigned to protect him.

Even Charlie's live-in girlfriend, Annie Bean (KRISTEN BELL), doesn't know of his past, but he must confront that when Annie's boss, Debby (KRISTIN CHENOWETH), informs Annie of a teaching job she should take in Los Angeles. That doesn't sit well with her ex-boyfriend, Gil (MICHAEL ROSENBAUM), who gets local sheriff Terry (JESS ROWLAND) to run Charlie's plates. That reveals that his real name is Yul Perkins and that he testified against bank robbers Alex Dimitri (BRADLEY COOPER) and his partners, Neve (JOY BRYANT) and Allen (RYAN HANSEN).

Wanting to ruin Annie's relationship with Charlie, Gil contacts Alex, all of which sets into motion a multi-car chase in the direction of L.A. where Charlie must get Annie within a certain period of time, all while also dealing with her discovery of his sordid past.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
