Two friends deal with loss amidst events bigger than them. Andrew is the friend we all have, the one who convinces you to come along despite your better judgment. Talented but with seemingly nothing to lose, his tailspin is balanced only by his professional drive to succeed as a trader on Wall Street. His best friend Jake, broken-hearted and writing sports instead of fiction, does his best to clean up the mess his friend creates until he runs into his capricious ex, Sarah again. So Andrew convinces him to ditch New York and hit the road, going nowhere. They commandeer a cab to Philadelphia, where they borrow Andrew's mom's station wagon. But when their car runs out of gas in the middle of Pennsylvania, Andrew reveals the real reason for the trip - his father has died, and he doesn't think he can make it through the funeral alone. On the road and in small town Ohio, Jake encounters the people who will help him start over. Meanwhile, Andrew runs away until he can't run any more. Written by Mickey Cottrell, Inclusive PR

Good acting and photography helps flat, aimless film
17 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, longtime best friends Andrew and Jake (Aaron Stanford and Jacob Fishel) are facing both professional and personal problems. Andrew's career on Wall Street has just sputtered out and Jake's stuck in a dead-end job while unable to start the novel he dreamed of writing. Their personal lives are also floundering, with Jake being strung along by a beautiful and free-spirited but selfish woman, while Andrew is faced with the death of his father, whom he was estranged from. A good premise, no doubt about that. So when Andrew decides to suddenly skip town, Jake accompanies him against his better judgment. At that point, the script seems at a loss as to what to do and the story just drifts and largely goes nowhere. After some very mild misadventures, they wind up in Andrew's home town. This was based on a short film and it appears the screenwriter struggled to find enough filler material to pad it out to feature length. Some of the dialog is perceptive, but not enough of it is. Andrew's character (very well-played by Stanford) is exasperating, as well. There are also some good scenes, especially one that takes place on a subway, but more of them seem to be just stuck there, and the story turns out to be as devoid of purpose as the characters. "How I Got Lost" is not a bad try and the cinematography is beautiful, but it never gives the audience enough to care about.
