Editorial Reviews

Alex Andero, a testosterone-driven dreamer who works in his family owned Greenwich Village café, dreams about making it big as a Hollywood screenwriter. Alex gets his big break when he gets a chance to pitch a story to a big movie producer. Alex who never even has written one script and determined not to spend the rest of his life as a dishwasher, finds his solution in Elliott Springer, a talented, gay, Jewish writer. Elliott, although completely opposed to the idea or collaborating on a script he considers to be nothing more than fluff. Elliott finally agrees to participate only after Alex promises to help him get a date with Joey (Kerr Smith, "Dawson s Creek"), the cute struggling actor who works with Alex at the café. Their relationship is fraught with complications as they forge an unlikely working partnership. By the end of this heartwarming, laugh-out-loud comedy, Alex and Elliott have not only written a great screenplay, they have rewritten each other's lives.

What starts out on the level of "Kiss Me Guido" or "Just One Time" dares to actually go one level deeper. If Woody Alan would ever get in touch with his feminine side, he could have written this screenplay.
For film industry people, the plot, and its devices, requires a certain amount of suspension of disbelief at times (or at least the ability to close one eye occasionally), but the little surprises, twists and arcs will touch even the most jaded amongst us.
Very commendable performances by both Michael Parducci and Peter Jacobson.
Long live the indi film industry!

What a little surprise this one turns out to be!!!!Definitely a low budget Indie, but with lots of savvy and an extremely charming and clever script,HIT AND RUNWAY is an intelligent and humourous look at the seemingly unlikely partnership/collaboration of Alex,an Italian straight guy who teams with Elliot,a Woody Allenesque gay Jew to write a hit screenplay and leave their old,dull,meaningless lives behind.That is the premise of this film on the surface,but what the viewer gets is a perfectly charming 101 minutes full of extremely interesting twists and turns and frankly some really honest and good acting from Mark Parducci and Peter Jacobson in the principle roles who forge a positively comical bond and bring all of their talents to flesh out these two wannabes.With all of the fluff that churns out of Hollywood,HIT AND RUNWAY can undoubtedly be termed a real sleeper hit.Yes, the film is full of formula and stereotypes,but it's been a long time since this reviewer has seen that genre done so heartfelt.Is it a great film? Well, that is subjective.Is it an infectious and enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining and intelligent piece of cinema? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Low budget doesn't nessaraly mean bad, and this film proves it. This is one of the best 'odd couple' films I've ever seen! Charicter driven from start to finish, it's funny, dramatic, and warm with a touch of sadness at the end that only and perfectly shows how fiction and real life can combine to enlighten. A good film to watch with your significant other of whatever orientation! Enjoy!

No, really..... why can't "Hollywood" make films of this caliber? This is just like, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, in terms of being a great film that relies on story, plot & acting to carry the film, not big name stars or big time special effects. I loved the movie and laughed all the way through. I only wish more people had had a chance to see it.

So many gay movies are so poorly filmed, acted, written, cliché, shallow and predictable. "Hit and Runway" is none of these things. There is actually character development, and the story takes very unexpected turns. The writing is engaging and believable. The actors do a great job at portraying their characters. It is witty and funny. I highly recommend this movie.

I really liked this film and will watch it again. A definite spin on the 'odd couple' with quality writing and performances. It has a low budget, indie feel which might not appeal to some. It should definitely appeal to writers or anyone that dreamed of writing a screenplay.

Hit and Runway is a delightfully amusing story about a confused young (definitely straight) Italian boy who yearns to be a screen writer and finds himself hooked up a kind of "Woody Alan" character whose emotional struggles seem endless - a kind of "Odd Couple" film told with some really talented actors. I think you'll love the way it all ends . . .

When I first selected this film to watch via my Amazon Prime account, I did not have super expectations that it would be anything but a waste of time and a way to fill in some space while I Occupied my Sofa during a recent bout of sickness. But boy was ever happy to be proven wrong! Not only was the film funny and entertaining, "Elliot" is the new surprise standout in this fllm. He is a strong character with scruples who knows what he wants, even if he is not sure he can get it. The pairing with "Alex" at first glance a more stereotypical Italian stud, seems unlikely but in the end quite satisfying. They make a great couple, even if they are never able to be more than just friends. I loved how Elliot schools Alex and how Alex learns and grows as the film progresses. There are a few cliched plot lines from time to time, but the dialog is funny and didactic at the same time. All in all, Elliot as the new, non-neurotic, Woody Allen-like character is what makes the movie. Sure, Alex is cute and sexy, but the film also helps one see that Elliot is those things too, but just in different ways. This romp of a movie is fun and entertaining in all the good ways. I loved it and I think you just might too.
