  • A road movie short on comedy and drama should at least offer a keen level of observation, but here insight is scarce and emotional resonance is faint. show more

  • Just like the titular vehicle, the movie sputters along toward its intended (and entirely predictable) destination. Even having tremendous actors like Sutherland and Mirren in the front seat can’t enliven this vacation. show more

  • It’s a long, long road cluttered with clichés and stalled in softness, pot-holed by its self-serving use of Alzheimer’s as a narrative convenience. show more
