Brilliant Movie
18 August 2017 | by mariesmith-85684See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie and watched it without any expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. Philip, the downtrodden good son (James Wolk) is given the responsibility by his father (Judd Nelson) of placing his opinionated grandmother Estelle (Cloris Leachman) in a retirement home. He reluctantly agrees, only to find that his wayward sister Megan (Mickey Summer) decides to tag along for reasons known only to her, resulting in a feel good road trip movie complete with a stash of pot of good measure. Cloris Leachman truly shines as the cantankerous grandmother with a heart, and there are some laugh out loud moments too. The entire cast are perfectly placed in their parts and add richness to an otherwise standard road movie. This really deserves more credit than it's given imo, but hey, check it out for yourself, you might like it
