    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    A dreary dramedy of a road film that starts off ploddingly and proceeds to only grow more so as it crawls along. show more

    It's a low-key road movie that doesn't stray far from the very, very beaten path. show more

    The Open Road isn’t an unwatchable howler -- instead, writer-director Michael Meredith’s film is merely dull and obvious. show more

    I enjoyed the performances of all 3 actors. The pace of the movie reflects the time needed to develop relationships. Justin had a low key role and that is how he played it. He was sensitive to the nuances of his character's emotions. He did a good job. Popcorn615, you don't know what you are talking about. Go watch Alpha Dog and you will see what a good actor Justin is!

    Justin Timberlake is an awful actor. Poor guy.
