if you are looking for a great story with engaging, believable characters and just scenically pleasant to the eye, this is the movie for you.

I am puzzled by those who found that the movie dragged.

It is surely worth watching.

One lowlight: A contrived, cheap-looking tornado scene that's just in the movie to give Pena and McAdams a chance to huddle in a drainpipe, allowing a certain delightful discovery to be made.

The end - which I'm sure Burger thinks is incredibly thoughtful and unexpected - wraps things up nicely, of course.

I saw this film recently and its very entertaining indeed!!!

The action or reaction to the circumstances seems to play out slow.

These three characters involve us through their adventurous journey that is an enjoyable ride all the way.

All that said, there are some enjoyable moments in this pedestrian piece of film art.

I thought the plot was engaging.

During the movie, it kind of felt like the story was going somewhere and even though it was fairly slow, I was interested.

" very entertaining indeed.." .

Tim Robbins gives his usual fine, understated performance as the older man facing some totally unexpected twists of fate.

Ho hum.

Movie was boring at parts and the ending was pretty predicable.
