Jeff Bridges never lets you down. What a family of great actors,it always brings back memories of Sea Hunt with their dad Loyd back in the early sixties. The movie is okay only because of Jeff Bridges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy does he know what he's doing.... Oct. 14 2010
By Elle Shopper - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Nearly everyone loves Jeff Bridges & Mary Steenburgen - of course - always - they are simply wonderful. Justin Timberlake, however, is sneaking up on super stardom a subtle way. If you'll really watch him in this movie, and in Black Snake Moan, you'll get it. He's chosen parts (or someone has brilliantly cast him and he accepted the parts) opposite Jeff Bridges and Mary Steenburgen in this movie, Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci in Black Snake really show his stuff - just, wow. I was never a big fan of his music (too old), but he is just wonderful as an actor. And Kate Mara - the perfect compliment here. Thank goodness for Netflix for recommending movies for me to watch....otherwise I would've missed this glad I didn't. It's listed as a comedy on Netflix, but really isn't - it's a touching story, romantic drama I guess, humor interjected along the way...surprising. I'm buying my own DVD now. Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie was average, but the Blu couldn't sell me either Nov. 15 2009
By Steve Kuehl - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
I am a big Jeff Bridges fan and appreciate everything he has done and such, but I didn't feel grabbed by this one at all. Not that there were horrible performances or bad film making, it just had a slew of little things peppered throughout that made me not give this the above average recommendation.

The story follows a minor league ball player (Timberlake) suffering a slump, who has to get his famous big league dad (Bridges) to make a final visit to his estranged and dying ex-wife. Through some poorly staged events, they have to make it a road trip together across several states (instead of flying) to make this union happen. The scenery is quite beautiful in some of the sequences, and it even upstages some of the sparse dialogue as the long-parted kin find a way to re-connect. Kate Mara is the tag-along friend who offers the love interest of Timberlake, but the chemistry never materializes in ways it should have.

The Blu quality is average to below average, with the strong showing being the opening aerial shot of the baseball game (must have used a different camera - they usually seem to in those kinds of scenes). Some of the color/contrasts in the open road shots shine nicely, but the amount of indoor and dark sequences show several weaknesses. The 5.1 is uneventful, and the only supplement offers little insight other than some typical fluff. Did not get to the commentary as I could not venture sitting through this twice. Three for the film content and Mr. Bridges (the supporting cast of Steenburgen and Harry Dean Stanton are not present enough to warrant dissecting their screen time). I love road films so maybe this will give you some light entertainment on a slow night.
