A trip worth taking...By sheenaweena (42 reviews) from UK , 07 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The Daytrippers is about as compelling as a 'little' film can get, with a sharp intelligent script, imaginative acting and knowing direction...
The premise of a woman (the brilliant Hope Davis of American Splendor fame) who finds a mysterious note in her home, which appears to be a love letter written to her husband and decides to find out the truth might seem a flimsy or atypical one, but nothing is as it seems in this biting black comedy...
We watch in voyeuristic fascination as the allegedly 'wronged' wife and her dysfunctional, neurotic family track her husband down, encountering a Pandora's Box of characters along the way as they stop off in 'living rooms' (ya call that livin)? and 'arty parties' all over Manhattan. Start spreadin the news...The Daytrippers is a very compelling watch...

I love this film!By Chlozzi (1 review) from Brighton , 06 Jan 2010This film is about the ups and downs of family life and about how families can love and hate one another at the same time.
I thought it was funny and true to life.
IntriguingBy crispin40 (562 reviews) from Stirling, Scotland , 15 May 2008Borrowed this because I'm trying to watch all Stanley Tucci films. As always, he was marvellous even tho he didn't have as much time on screen as others in the cast.
Just good entertainment with a lot of home truths about family life and relationships in general.
I can't write much as I'd give away the plot but it was well directed, filmed and acted. At times it almost seemed like a radio play turned into a fim. Some of the situations were a bit OTT.
Good fun tho
love itBy a customer from london , 18 Nov 2006I loved this when I saw it first and it doesn't dim on a second viewing. Sharp, bright, funny, it has a melancholy undertow which gives it depth. All the performances are spot on and the characters have depths below the wisecracks.
RubbishBy Robert Key from Stoke on Trent, England , 03 Jan 2006Really not very good. A pointless story not worth watching, even on a Sunday afternoon.
Take a ride!By a customer from Ripley, Surrey , 17 Dec 2005Very simple premise of a film which gives space for the characters to breathe much life into initially little drawn characters. Parker Posey is especially outstanding as the little sister and Campbell Scott suitably smarmy in a supporting role. Definatley worth renting.
