“..words are only part of the story..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
3 of 5

“..though the movie may putter and sputter a lot like Grace's vintage Beetle, rarely has head-to-toe tie-dye been pulled off with such flare..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..this head-hammering, clash-of-values family-healing dramedy makes sure to literalize all of its uplifting messages..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]

by Andrew Lapin [NPR]

by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..all the same, the spectacle of first-rate actors attacking third-rate material is guilty fun..”

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
