  • Just try to take your eyes off Dern. In his finest two hours onscreen, he gives a performance worth cheering. There's not an ounce of bullshit in it. Same goes for the movie. show more

  • What's extraordinary is what happens at the intersection of Mr. Payne's impeccable direction and Mr. Nelson's brilliant script. The odyssey combines, quite effortlessly, prickly combat between father and son. show more

  • Nebraska is not a breakneck, screwball farce - although it has its moments, like the comical heist of an air compressor from a farmer's barn. Payne's film is loping. It's deadpan, poignant, absurd. show more

    BORING. The entire movie (I watched) was in black and white. You couldn't even take any pleasure from the scenery of the boring drive from state to state. It was mostly drive, pee, drive, pee, sleep in motel find crazy dad in a bar. The enthusiastic reviews must be people on crack. Who are these people with rave reviews? This movie was so boring my sleep fell asleep.

    Best movie I have seen in a long time. Reflected real people and real life. For anyone who has experience with the heartland of America, this film and its characters ring true. My only disappointment was with the soundtrack; it only occasionally added to the story. Mostly it was a detraction.
