About the Movie
Crossword puzzles, supermarket runs...Judy and Allen fill in the small moments of their commonplace marriage as best they can. When they run into two former teachers of their son Andrew, they learn of a job opportunity for him. Unfortunately, Andrew is distant in location and in family relations. Suddenly realizing she must embark on a quest to repair that, Judy takes Allen on a cross-country trip to see Andrew and work things out. After they rope in their two unmarried daughters, the family is forced to come together, for better or worse.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A film of uncommon originality.
Fresh: Brutally truthful, funny and touching in nearly equal measure, this semi-autobiographical, micro-budget road movie lacks any of the obvious bells and whistles that even indie features seem to need nowadays.
Rotten: It's difficult to see how this picture -- essentially chronicling a long car trip -- could mean much to anyone but the Wagners and their friends and relatives.
Rotten: Ultimately the film's insights and observations seem not so much universal as self-absorbed and solipsistic.
