    Rudolph, a comic force on "SNL," can speak volumes with the tilt of an eyebrow. She and Krasinski, of "The Office," are absolutely extraordinary. Ditto the film, which sneaks up and floors you. show more

    One can almost feel the movie Away We Go might have been, if only we could believe that Verona loves Burt - or understand why Burt loves Verona. show more

    i thought the chemistry between the two characters was amazing. John Krasinski is brilliant with the snappy remarks and snarky humor towards life, but then Maya Rudolph steps out of the shadows of SNL and pulls the loving couple together. yes the couple was different from most others in movies but you could tell that both actors were completely in the zone for the love that the two characters show for eachother. i give it an A++ keep them coming Mendes.

    Young couple relationships are examined in this drama-comedy. Entertaining but bland.

    Absolutely one of the worst movies I have ever seen. NO chemistry between the characters-just dull,boring and way too long. Don't even see it on DVD.
