    Claudia Puig USA Today

    This sweetly eccentric and low-key buddy picture/bromance bears little resemblance to more well-known examples of the genre, such as "Lethal Weapon" or "Pineapple Express." show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    While the core elements of this reluctant buddy movie could almost constitute a pared-down theater piece, the film breathes with real cinematic expansiveness. Green’s poetic observation skills are the key to that seeming contradiction. show more

    Prince Avalanche occupies a strange space between [Green's] broadly comedic fare and devoutly character-driven dramas, and while we’re happy to see him closer to the latter mode once more, let’s hope that he’ll be back in a bigger way the next time out. show more

    Prince Avalanche speaks insightfully to the joys and costs of being alone, and of the risk that comes with letting another person in. Bittersweet and deeply felt, it also shows with confidence the estimable and still surprising talents of its cast and director. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Here's a funny, poignant oddball of a movie, existing on a galaxy far, far away from the likes of "Pacific Rim" or "World War Z" or anything whose computer-generated actions speak louder than words. show more

    Bruce Ingram Chicago Sun-Times

    Prince Avalance is frequently funny in a subdued sort of way, but it’s primarily contemplative and eventually intimate. show more

    Loren King Boston Globe

    It’s a surprisingly humorous and humane film — a lyrical little oddity that stands as a welcome return to form. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A charming oddity starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, often feels like an al fresco stage play. It’s an intimate two-hander with lots of dialogue, humour and poignant revelations, set against a backdrop of rugged woodland beauty. show more

    Slant Magazine

    The psychological path of these characters is finely marked with signposts, but as Prince Avalanche reaches its destination, you almost wish it would have gotten a little more lost in the woods. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    It’s a “Waiting for Godot” set in the solitary work and lives of two highway line-painters. show more

    Do not watch this movie, especially if you have to wake up early tomorrow morning. I kept thinking that something was going to happen. Nope, nothing happened. Movie was a drag.

    One of the worst movies I\'ve seen. Boring to the max. Kept viewing hoping for the plot to get better. Major fail in my perspective.
