Hit and Run Soundtrack List & Songs in the Movie Trailer

Updated on June 13, 2013

2012 Movie Starring Bradley Cooper, Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell

I had to do a double take, is this dreadlocked dude really the same Bradley Cooper that graced the cover of People magazine. It's hard to believe that the lesser known, less attractive Dax Shepard is actually the romantic male lead. At first glance, I would have have cast Bradley Cooper as the guy that's in the witness protection program, with Dax Shepard who's more of a character actor playing the crazy, over the top convict part.

So it's really partly vanity casting that may cause writer and actor Dax Shepard the opportunity to have a bigger hit on his hands. Had he stepped aside to let his co-star take the lead turn, perhaps this crass caper comedy would have had a decent shot at pulling in curious Hangover Movie afficianados. In still this late summer release looks like it might limp to the box office with Shepard's girlfriend, Kristen Bell offering little help in terms of box office star power.

So far, songs on the 2012 Hit and Run Soundtrack list for the movie's trailer include Jimmy Soul's "If You Wanna Be Happy" and Aerosmith's obligatory and much overused "Sweet Emotion" amping up the car chase scenes.

Hit and Run also stars the perpetually hapless Tom Arnold Madea's Witness Protection and the ever cute Kristin Chenoweth Glee along with David Koechner, Michael Rosenbaum and Beau Bridges with a release date of August 24, 2012. Chenoweth's latest movie is Family Weekend co-starring Matthew Modine Family Weekend which was released on demand in April 2013.

Song Playing When Bradley Cooper Busts Into the Hotel Room - "If You Wanna Be Happy"

There's a song faintly playing in the background when Bradley Cooper barges into the group of senior citizens in partial states of undress. Guess it's hot and maybe there's no A.C. but it's a sight gag that's good for a few laughs. The songs carries the lyrics "If You Wanna Be Happy for the Rest of Your Life". Not sure which version is playing but here's one to enjoy by Jimmy Soul.
