I really wanted to like this movie....
17 June 2018 | by george-157-454336See all my reviews

We watched this on Amazon Prime and I really wanted to like it. The premise of a multi-generational buddy-road movie was intriguing and the reviews were sweet. And its a movie that tried really hard but is based on so many flawed premises that it eventually just collapses under its own improbability. The portrayal of Tourette's is both mildly offensive and irritating conveniently used (and perhaps even unnecessary). There are undeveloped backstories that are never explained, with Frank being both wise and child-like concurrently based on nothing that the viewer is shown. The three young women do a fine job, within their cookie-cutter predictable roles, but the support cast (especially a just bizarre holy-roller and his stereo-typical son) are formulaic at best.

All of this is set within a confused geography, which would have the viewer believe that the Columbia River is located at both the southern entrance to Oregon and, somehow, at its border with Washington too. Or that lush PNW farmsteads are located adjacent to barren deserts, or that the route from California to Washington never involves going through city.

This movie tried. It didn't make it. Watch something else.
