Masterful story of two generations starting over and coming to terms with the past! Amazing performances by Tara Westwood and Carlo Fiorletta as father and daughter on a road trip to Florida to scatter her mother's ashes (with an omniscient and sometimes wise-cracking GPS named Joe). Multiple generations can easily relate to the emotions and actions of these truly likable characters as their life journeys converge in Mara Lesemann's unique take on the road-trip genre. Entertaining appearances by Paul Sorvino and Richard Kind. Not to mention a phenomenal sound track. Highly recommend!

a happy story about how well a father and daughter get along. we got to see more of myrtle beach, than we ever have. again, if you watch the trailer ,you probably will decide not to watch the movie, but the movie is good. the funniest part of the movie is whenever they are driving, the gps system is like a person and friend and he listens to their conversations and tells them what to do. he is hilarious.
What could possibly go wrong on a road trip! Well, it's not all bad as a father and daughter make their way to Florida with a couple of hiccups along the way. I was touched by the closeness of two characters and as I watched the movie I felt like a fly on the wall soaking up their actions.
Giving it three is pushing it, but the movie does have some charm. The actors were okay, with Sorvino and Kind getting about thirty seconds apiece. Everyone seems to be trying too hard to be quirky and eccentric. Found the siri voice really annoying and not funny. The gimmick just didn't work for me. Not a bad little movie though. I appreciate the effort, but someone has to counteract the absolutely absurd rave reviews.
A charming and quirky roadtrip film that in some ways feels like an allegory; all the detours, like sidequests, endured by our leads have them meet with memorable and meaningful characters. There is a wonderful appearance by the fabulous Phyllis Somerville. The dialogue is so natural and often humorous, the characters are easily endearing once you let them in.

Basically unknown actors in a sweet little film about a father and daughter trying to come to grips with the dying wishes of his wife (her mother) on a road trip to Florida in order to comply with last wishes to scatter her ashes. I found Tara Westwood beguiling in the role, and the actor who played her father was also good; easy to watch, somewhat predictable, but warm.
