Now very little actually happens, they paint the road, erect some signs , meet an aged truck driver and an elderly woman who is searching her burnt out home to salvage memories . This lady was really doing that and was asked if her story could be put into the film - which is a nice touch. The idea was that this would be an absurdist, minimalist tale where the two main characters would slowly reveal their real characters - both strengths and weaknesses by just being together or alone with their own thoughts, and some alcohol and heart ache.
So does it work? Well a lot of people seem to think so with a 6.4 rating on IMDB this is certainly no turkey. It is also supposed to be a 'hilarious' comedy; well I felt amused a couple of times but this is not even in the foothills of being funny. The characterisation is good and some of the absurd themes sort of work, but overall I felt under whelmed by this film. It is only 90 minutes long and the scenery is often beautiful. The score is from `Explosions in the Sky' and `Loosley Tight' and that also really works, I would give 6 out of ten which roughly equates with 3 stars. That is not meant to be harsh but to ignore the areas where this does not work would, I feel, be disingenuous. Still if you like absurdist, minimalism then this could be one you will want to see.
Don't waste your time, go your way.
Yes, it ambles along without offending and is amusing in places but you really get to know and identify with the two main characters. Paul Rudd is excellent and , although looking like a young Jack Black , Hirsch is suprisingly good too
I can't remember why I put it on my rental list. Did I see a good trailer for it?
From what content could they possibly make a trailer. - there was no content.

Its not a region-free import bluray, which caught me out, it probably says somewhere but not clearly enoughPublished 10 months ago by Marco
Both actors give it their best shot. Ultimately the best turn is from a lady whose house was burnt down in wild fires and her real life story and dialogue was included. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Lolarola
