A joy to watch
28 January 2014 | by jakk54See all my reviews

Truly a delightful little film. The leads gave terrific, emotionally- resonant performances.

Unlike too many mainstream comedy films, this one has subtlety, and depth of character and motivations we can all relate to.

I really enjoyed the music, too. There seems to be a trend in indie movies at the moment, for quirky, acoustic songs, and the music in this little gem adds something to the milieu.

There are touches of pathos alongside the humor. And you do find yourself rooting for the oddball heroes and heroine.

I can recommend this unreservedly if you enjoy originality, a sparky script, great performances and the road movie genre. Wonderful stuff.
