Thoroughly Enjoyable
31 May 2004 | by normanbeilSee all my reviews

My wife and I discovered this movie (accidentally) when TiVo recorded it for us. We noticed the great cast so decided to give it a try. It had us captivated right from the start.

No formula TV movie here. Coast to Coast is refreshingly original; doesn't neatly fit into any particular genre. It was both very funny and emotional, yet felt true-to-life.

This is a movie made by intelligent people for intelligent people. We particularly enjoyed the witty dialogue and the wonderful characters Dreyfuss and Davis meet along their journey. These are two great actors at their best.

Lately, it seems that good movies are few and far between, so this was a real treat for us.
