Lesson Learned: Your cell phone is your friend.
In 1999's Hit and Run, we're introduced to Joanna Kendall (Margaret Colin), a woman who accidentally hits a little girl with her car, then runs off to get help. Upon her return, an angry mob await, cursing whatever dickhead would dare flee the scene. Fearing their wrath, she keeps quiet and opts not to say anything about the incident. Her guilt builds up over the course of the movie until it causes her life to unravel.
We just have two words for Joanna: cell phone. (C'mon lady, it's 1999. Are people actually using pay phones as anything other than urinals at this point?)
