I don't wan't to spoil anythng by reveling the plot, but wanted to give my thoughts about this movie. I saw this movie while staying at a hotel. I truly enjoyed it. The actors had great chemistry & didn't overact the scenes. The movie moves smoothly (almost slow), but keeps you locked into the story. The scenery in the movie is beautiful. I would love to see these actors together in another movie.

What a great find and pleasant surprise this movie was for me. I found it to be intelligent yet whimsical, painful yet funny, and most of all, thoroughly entertaining. As I watched this movie, it became very apparent to me that it was truly a labor of love by those most involved in making it -- producers, writer, director, actors,etc. It also is a beautifully filmed movie that reminded me that we are blessed to live in a magnificent and diverse country. I will recommend this movie to friends and continue to look for other independent film projects involving the Jaegers in the future.

This is an incredible movie with a good plot, great acting, and realistic, well-written dialog. This film does not remind me of anything I've ever watched before, which makes it all that much more interesting. Although most women will love this movie, it is definitely not a chick-flick and guys will like it just as much. As others have written, there are no special effects, no car chases, and no big name stars. What is does have is a good story and some wonderful acting. The scenery is realistic because the movie was actually filmed on a road trip across the country. The two main stars (Sam and Amber Jaeger) are married in real life and Sam directed this gem. The heart of this movie is the interaction between the two as they face personal issues and physical hurdles together and learn more about each other as well as about themselves. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

It was the best movie that we've seen in a long time. Highly recommend it as a romantic comedy with substance. I'm looking forward to this actor/director's next movie.

I can not express how thought-provoking this movie was, and it was done in such an artistic, delightful way. Each scene, though seemingly unimportant on the surface, was artfully crafted, taking on greater meaning and speaking volumes as the movie travels onward. Though the characters(who are opposites) appear to be running away from their lives, are really reconnecting with them: their pasts and their futures. All at the same time. Together. It was amazing. This movie is HUGE. I haven't seen anything like it in a very long time. It's the kind of movie you can't stop thinking about after viewing it. So, do not turn it off or you'll deprive yourselves of seeing each layer, more emotionally raw than the last one, peeled away. And you'll realize that no one, on the surface, is really what they seem. However, you'll feel satisfied by the end of it, because you'll know that each character will heal. It is a truly amazing story to watch. The acting was perfect! Thank you to those who put their hearts and souls into it! We marveled at it and enjoyed it immensely! We will be watching it again and recommending it to all our friends!

Sam Jaeger writes, directs and stars in this romantic and believable situation comedy. This is neither overblown nor timid while costarring his own wife in the opposite lead role. Scenery mixes with a definite palpable chemistry as these two take to the road for a trip that does not start with the happiest of farewells.

Thom (Sam Jaeger) is struggling to pay his rent. He's falling behind so he has to make money quickly. He decides to drive a cab while living in New York City, although without proper licensing to drive it and carrying many of his possessions in his back seat. Not having another choice, he picks up a hopeful but desperate fare in Claire.

Claire (Amber Jaeger), who is a high-powered businesswoman, catches her husband at their home in an obviously questionable situation with another woman. This woman compliments her on the "color of her bedroom" before leaving their home. Within the same time frame, she receives a call to let her know that her father has had a heart attack and is hospitalized. These things happen just at the same time it all hits the fan with her marriage. This causes her to run out into the street and randomly grab a cab that just so happens to be Thom. In a "Shut up and just drive" situation, it is a go and Go Now! The eventual destination is Encinitas, CA, but as far as Claire is concerned, anywhere would be better than where she is at the moment.

This is an easier, sometimes sarcastic, mix of a story, being more subtle than in your face as it gains momentum. The action is slower paced and the humor comes at you at the same speed though there are some definite laughs catching one right out loud. The couple goes from one mishap to another in some gorgeous and well shown scenery (Jesse Feldman), from the Big City to Middle America, and onward. This is all scored with some original and snappy music by 'Bootstraps' all coming together very well for an enjoyable movie that I would absolutely watch again.

Format: DVD
I didn't like the movie at first...it seemed aimed at a 20-something audience. The soundtrack underlined that impression. Another road trip, I thought, with two characters with warring personalities who will encounter troubles and eventually fall in love. A tried and true formula.

But somehow I stuck with it, probably because the actors were very good. I really liked the angry young woman and then the shluppy cab driver warmed up to me. There were some good stops along the way. The guy's family in Boulder was perfect. I loved his uptight dad and his mom who kept saying "How Fun!" Then, the girl's sweet eccentric mom in Las Vegas....a heartwarmer. The scene at the memorial service was a little maudlin for me and the only scene that didn't ring true. The end was trite, too, but somehow, by that time I had forgiven them all.

After I saw the film I learned that the lead actor, Sam Jaeger,also wrote and directed the film and his leading woman is his real-life wife, Amber. It makes sense, as they had such perfect chemistry and the whole film had that warmth about it that comes from a labor of love. I'd like to seem them together again, maybe in something with a little more depth.

PS. A week later. I just saw another "romantic road trip" film that I think is worthy of comparison to this one. It's a French film, "As the Sea Rises" and in my opinion, is a much better film...much less formulaic and predictable...It has characters who don't look like movie stars and their lives are much more interesting and realistic. I recommend it.
