This is a grandpa-grandson road trip movie that was moderately entertaining, if a tad long. Tim Daly dusts off his old-lady persona from "Wings" to play a sandwich-generation sufferer whose heart is in the right place (deep down) but who's a little too grouchy and overwrought to gather any real sympathy from the viewer, even at the end. This movie also shows that Peter Falk really should find himself a lounge chair next to the pool and stay in it. He's overweight, out of breath and bordering on feeble these days. His voice is so raspy and low that large sections of his part of the script were practically inaudible. Josh Hutcherson, who played the grandson, is the real standout here, with the only real screen presence of the movie. Watch out for him.
