Storyline

JR has broken up with her professor. She enlists her nervous and obnoxious younger brother Colin to take a short road trip in order to help move out her belongings. They bicker and fight, with one another and pretty much anybody they encounter, before being brought to a place of togetherness and understanding as a result of being pushed away by everybody in their lives except one another.

Two peas in a pod
30 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

I like checking out independent films every once in awhile, so the CW fit the bill, especially because it was billed as a comedy. This was a Black and While film, and I usually take a star off because of that, but for some reason it worked in this case. For some reason the lower quality look gives the viewer a bit of distance they need to enjoy the film.

It resolves around a couple of adult siblings who take a trip together. The sister asks the brother to go with her to get the sisters belongings from an old boyfriends apartment. This trip involved a car ride requiring an overnight stay at a bible belt type motel which was a pretty funny scene. These two are the kind of kids that seemed like they grew up outside the popular crowd. However, I felt drawn to them and felt sorry for how the world revolved around them in cruel ways. They were kind of misfits, but they were not the type that would take crap from anybody. At least they were pretty kind to each other.

The end of the film is kind of a shocker, but it also caused me to think about the movie a lot the day after the viewing. I would recommend this film to those who are open minded. I also wanted to point out that the brother and sister looked and acted a lot like they really were siblings - great acting job. I think both of them are deserving of future success in the arts.
