    ★★★½

    While I’ve disliked this film before, I can’t deny it this time around. The humor is wholesome and plentiful throughout. Of course it’s cheesy but that’s in the charm of it all. 

    It won’t make my favorites and I won’t say I loved it but I cannot say that it isn’t entertaining and full of many quotable and memorable moments.  I’ve been reformed.

    Sometimes the best stories are the simple ones. No flash here, just a tale of two men working on a lonely country road. They’re away from everything but what they don’t have they make up for in companionship. 

    The camerawork here is awesome. The way the visuals line up with voiceover really touched me. Paul Rudd is so likeable in everything and you really feel for him here. 

    If I had to describe this movie, it’s the perfect indie to put on during a rainy day. Quiet, heartfelt, with some true gems to take home.
