    John Krasinski (The Office) and Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live) star in the heartfelt film that explores the comedic twists and turns in one couple’s journey across contemporary America. Anticipating the birth of their first child, longtime couple Burt (Krasinski) and Verona (Rudolph) embark on an ambitious itinerary to visit friends and family in order to find their perfect home. Featuring a remarkable soundtrack and an incredible ensemble cast – including Jeff Daniels, Allison Janney, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Catherine O’Hara and Jim Gaffigan. It’s the hilarious, witty film that critics are hailing as “absolutely extraordinary!” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)

    Like all road pictures, AWAY WE GO is about a couple in their early thirties trying to discover themselves (and what kind of home and family they want to create for themselves) through a round of visits in the sixth month of the pregnancy. I've never been a huge fan of Dave Eggers, but the script that he wrote with Vendela Vida is a brilliant one. The structure of the film is simple: Burt (THE OFFICE's Jim Krasinski) and Verona (SNL's Maya Rudolph) have moved to a small, cold house entirely so that they can live near Burt's parents. But after learning that they will be moving to Antwerp a month before their baby is due, they realize that they don't need to live any longer in a town where they have no friends and, now, no relatives. They plan a long trip that will see them visiting friends and relatives in a number of locations, including Scottsdale, Tucson, Montreal, and Miami. They see people whose lives they would like to emulate and those they would not.

    And along the way hilarity ensues. The scenes between Burt and Verona are frequently hysterical, though when they are meeting their friends or relatives they tend to become "straight men" and the humor shifts over to the others. Although several people are absolutely outstanding, two actors deserve special mention. First, Allison Janney is absolutely hysterical as Verona's former boss in Chicago (more about Chicago in a second). She is, putting it simply, a nightmare of a mother. But in the most hysterical of ways. (Now on Chicago. Verona mentions working in Chicago and she is shown to be a medical illustrator.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscent of Garden State, and thats good! October 11, 2009
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    This movie was a charming look at a couple that is struggling to define themselves and to find their place in the world. The comedy was perfectly placed and well written. The story lines were honest and believable glimpses into various peoples very different lives. The main couple visits friends and family around North America trying to find where they would fit. What they find out is that they don't really fit any of those places and they have to make their own way in the world. Excellent movie, one of the best of 2009.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Sam Mendes-lite but still Sam Mendes-good. July 12, 2009
    At the butt-end of last year Sam Mendes directed a film called Revolutionary Road. This was a masterpiece, truly deserving of that title. It's his best film hands down! His previous films American Beauty and Road To Perdition weren't too shabby either. They all have a sense of darkness and foreboading. The dark foreboading element is missing from his current film Away We Go, and that is not a bad thing.

    The basic set-up is simple and understandable in that movie universe sort of way, but two winning performances from leads Mya Rudolph and Chris Krisinski really help this thing over some of the comedy set-up trappings. Rudolph is an actress that I've known from SNL and that's it, I've not seen here in anything else. Surprisingly, she ends up playing straight-man to Krisinski. And you she gives a very touching and honest performance, and I see a great career outside anything resembling comedy in her future. Krisinski is an actor I've never seen in anything. I've been informed that he is one of the stars of the American version of The Office, and he, like Rudolph, is someone I want to see more of. He plays affable in this film like a pro. He's an optimist and a realist all in one heartwarming stroke. He's the goofier of the couple but it comes off more like it's part of his character and his personality and less like comedy schtick. Together I would watch any film premise about this pairing.

    This is a real couple, not a made up movie couple. This is my favorite part of this film. The plot is cute and similar to that of the great film Flirting With Disaster, but the unmarried leads make this film above average. They don't have silly, pointless and melodramatic arguments to up the conflict factor most these type of films contrive for the sheer 'entertainment' value.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Away We Go November 1, 2009
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I truly enjoyed this film. I thought it had a really good message. It only had one problem. The language. I don't usually care about such things, but a friend was over to watch it with me and she was offended. Truly the language was not necessary to the movie and I think this is a shame. I know she should loosen up maybe, but using language for shock value is unnecessary.

    However, over all I liked the picture.

    Away We Go has good laughs, some serious drama at points, a few rather poignant moments--and great acting as well! The plot flows at a good pace; I was never bored although they could have edited out a couple of minutes here and there to make the story tighter and the action even better. The cinematography and the choreography are particularly strong which enhances the effect of this movie; and the script is very good. The casting is also quite good; these actors have you believing that they are the people they portray and that's grand.

    When the film starts, we quickly meet Burt Farlander (John Krasinski) and his lover Verona (Maya Rudolph) who are expecting their first child. Although they are in their thirties they just aren't quite sure just how to properly raise their unborn daughter so that she will have the perfect childhood. Of course, this provides the reason for the young couple to travel all over the nation--and even Montreal--to find the picture perfect place to raise their soon to be born child. They could have stayed where they were but after Burt's parents Gloria (Catherine O'Hara) and Jerry (Jeff Daniels) drop the bombshell that they are selfishly going to live in Belgium for the next two years Burt and Verona really want to get out of there and explore.

    And wow, how their trip yields funny and rather unexpected results! This may seem as if I'm giving too much away; but I assure you that I'm leaving out plenty so that you can enjoy this film. Suffice it to say that they meet other parents they thought they knew but who, in actuality, really don't have it together after all although one couple does seem to be pretty much "on the ball.
