Really not very goodBy BernieS (1 review) from Bishop's Stortford , 15 Mar 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]I found this film painfully awful.
I struggled to find any interest in the two main characters who's profiles belong in a psychiatric text book, one was a Narcissist and the other a Weird Psychopath. There were no redeeming features in the writing which meant that you could care less whether these two morons survived their car crash, I found myself hoping one (or preferably both) of them would get shot by the Mexican Policemen- sadly they weren't
There were some wonderful actors languishing in a sea of nonsense, I love watching Juliette Lewis and Jamie Foxx- Why were they so wasted?
On no level is punching a child funny, don't get me wrong the child was irritating but punching him?
People have been comparing it to Planes, Trains and Auto mobiles- these two films do not belong in the same sentence together.One is a classic the other total rubbish.

Definitely worth watching.By Rampz (3 reviews) , 18 May 2013Not sure why this film gets such average/bad reviews. You know what you are going to get with Robert Downey and Zach Galifianakis and they both deliver exactly that. I really enjoyed the story and laughed a lot. Good film. Definitely worth a watch.
A rubbish remake of Planes, Trains and AutomobilesBy SilentHouse (17 reviews) from Barrhead , 12 May 2013It's Planes, Trains and Automobiles but awful. Zack Galifianakis's character is just plain unlikeable. I think we are supposed to find him irritating and warm to him. I didn't but somehow suddenly and abruptly Robert Downie Jr's characters does halfway through for no apparent reason. At one point he hates him, next thing they are best buddies and Robert Downie Jr's character changes personality as if he had some kind of undisclosed schizoid issues. Badly written with unlikeable and unconvincing characters. Give it a miss and watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
not my cup of teaBy a customer , 23 Apr 2013Sorry I got too bored and decided enough was enough after 25 mins. Just not my sense of humour - too dry and sarcastic.
Well worth a watch!By Jimbo76 (14 reviews) , 23 Apr 2013I wasn't going to watch this movie because of the bad reviews but so so glad I did. This is a very funny film. It was very similar too planes trains and automobiles and Zach Galifianakis as his best. Hope you enjoyed as much as I did!

Enjoyable, harmless, forgettable fun?By a customer , 23 Apr 2013Road movie with bumbling mishaps. Or is it? Perhaps it is a dialogue about what makes us who we are and what we consider to be important. Who's the real idiot? He who spends his time planning and worrying or he who takes each moment and embraces it? Is the journey more important than the destination?
