Since this movie is shown open air tomorrow at my university and I bought the DVD some weeks ago, I’m going to write a short review.
From the outside it is an insignificant movie. No big actors and a quite simple story – two guys on their way through California’s wine country. But that is only a shallow view of the movie sideways. If you look a little deeper you can see that the director Alexander pain already has some experience with movies were the actors lead the story. It surely didn’t win the Oscar for best Screenplay in 2004 for nothing.

IMDB writes:

“Two men reaching middle age with not much to show but disappointment, embark on a week long road trip through California's wine country, just as one is about to take a trip down the aisle.”

The two main characters don’t just go an a funny trip, they struggle for their future life. Of course this movie is no shallow entertainment, but if you allow to get involved into the characters a little bit, you will most probable find the movie very entertaining.

(Jay’s Rating 4/5)
