A road trip story with laughs and heart., 6 November 2011
Author: hamilmckerley from United States

I went in thinking this was going to be something of a "chick flick" only to find out it was much more fun and had way more depth than that categorization would normally imply. A coming of age road trip filled with laughter,soul searching and twists that will leave you cheering for all the best things in others and, in the end, you may even find out a little something about yourself. I would recommend this for anyone over ten years old and this makes a wonderful film for the whole family. I saw it on a limited release in Alabama but I understand it will be released again nationwide next spring; I'm definitely going to see it again then as well; it's THAT good!
