Storyline

High Road showcases a totally improvised script about Glenn "Fitz" Fitzgerald (James Pumphery), a young man whose loyalties are split among his band, his girlfriend Monica (Abby Elliott) and selling weed. After his band breaks up, Fitz finds himself dealing pot out of his garage and bonding with a rebellious 16-year-old Jimmy (Dylan O'Brien). As his former band mates (Zach Woods, Matt L. Jones, Lizzy Caplan) find success and one of his drug deals goes awry, Fitz and Jimmy hit the road. Amid guns, broken bones, sassy cabbies, rude hookers, and a suspicious doctor (Horatio Sanz), Fitz has to navigate their way to safety-and he doesn't even know about the surprise Monica has in store for him back home!

6 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Almost every Tuesday Instant Netflix has at least one film streaming on same day as released on DVD, this week (3/6/12) it's High Road & Senna, the former I decided to watch first.

Aimless slacker/weed dealer, Glenn (James F. Pumphrey) has fallen on hard times after his band, Torigl, split up. So when one of his clients gets nabbed by the cops, he freaks out and takes off on a road trip to see his estranged father. His neighbor's son along for the ride. So now he's being pursued by his neighbor who thinks his son's been kidnapped, his neighbor's friend & glenn's pregnant girlfriend in this highly-improvised Indy comedy.

Most of the film is pretty funny and I found myself entertained throughout. Most of the cast acquitted themselves admirably, with the exception of Ed Helms who did nothing for me. But yea, if you liked Upright Citizens Brigade, you'll love this film.

my grade: B+
