Summary: A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
A forgettable, somewhat charming, silly, wannabe hipster film. The 2 leads had almost no chemistry but Krasinski is very watchable. For such a short film, it felt way too long. Sam Mendes has really fallen off.
A true love story of a couple in search of happiness, a home to raise their child and each other. The story on itself is great and the last third of the film is charming. However, the first hour or so is bad. The two main characters are interesting, involving and in a way recognisable, but all the other characters are just unbelievably annoying.
I like a lot of things about this movie, but the generic/abrasive soundtrack, Allison Janney, and the overall wannabe trendiness made the experience unpleasant sometimes. The final ten minutes felt awfully stretched out. Maya Rudolph was a wonderful surprise, however.
Fun character piece that's a bit hit or miss, very much Krasinski's show. The miss is more of a tonal thing where it goes for too much of a whacky indie feel instead of having a realistic tone. Some great moments though, and worth a look if you a fan of slice of life movies.
Absolutely fantastic first two-thirds marred by a horrific indie-stock finish. -10 points for the horrible, generic fucking soundtrack and -5 points for that cringe-inducing trampoline "marriage" thing. Eggers once again writes something that strangely and constantly vacillates between awesomely charming and infuriatingly stupid.
Not usually the biggest fan of road films, but it hits pretty close for something targeted squarely at my age group. Acting is great. Editing could've been smoother. Writing was very novel-like (unsurprising given the writers); Eggers & Vida get a B for the transition, I think.
The comedy fails but the heartfelt performances deliver in the end. Schneider gives a lot in his great 5 minute presence. Mendes sucks for the most part though, and he gets in the way from this being a good meditation on parenthood. Unfortunately, it's too inconsistent to love.
Its like curling up with a good book, overlooking sunset, a warm breeze blowing through - its sweet, tender, emotional, intelligent, .. acting is great, music is great, writing is good .. And its reflective: being broke even at 35, grand-parents who choose the wrong time to get selfish, relatives/friends who think it is their duty to throw out free advice; cmon who haven't had them. -2 for the part where they associate intimate bonding and co-sleeping... with characters who have gone cuckoo.
First half of the film feels a bit too much like a clichéd drama comedy but it works better than it should. In the second half we get to meet more interesting characters and the atmosphere is just great. Both of the main actors are awesome but I especially liked Rudolph.
