Storyline

An odd couple take to the open road. Having followed his girlfriend out to California's Wine Country for the summer, Yale law student Sherman finds himself dumped, and cut off from his high-society mother's money. A stranger stranded in a strange land, he hitches a ride with Palmer, a washed-up, unapologetically eccentric Olympic athlete. There are detours along the way, including the possibility of an enlightening girlfriend, an encounter with a gun-wielding gourmet chef and a chance for the former athlete to be on top again. A comedy about absent fathers and damaged sons striving to find balance between responsibility and recklessness. Written by Anonymous

Slightly better than a made-for-Lifetime movie.
1 November 2011 | by (West Seattle) – See all my reviews

There's really nothing about this forgettable film that makes it worth recommending. It's unimaginative in story, character, and execution and pretty predictable when it tries to be clever. If you've watched a decent amount of indie films you've already seen everything in this movie done better in some other film.

But the acting is fine (Enrico Colantoni is great, James LeGros is good), it looks fine, and the music is ignorable to decent and it's all exactly the sort of music you'd expect to hear in this sort of film.

It's not worth seeking out, but (and this is the only reason I bothered to write a review for it) if you happen to be stuck in a hotel room or are house sitting for friends and it comes on some indie film channel and you have nothing to read and don't really want to think about anything it's not a bad option.
