Away We Go Movie Reviews
User reviews on Away We Go
I really enjoyed this film. It is funny without relying on the same old stuff that we've all seen a million times. Show me something new and I'll pay attention. It did and I recommend it for that reason. I require a lot from films, and I could have done without the opening scene, but you can relax into this film quite nicely and enjoy the ride. Very likeable main characters, superb supporting cast and a hoot to watch. I say see it.
Away We Go is an absolutely beautiful movie, both hilarious and sweet. The music is great, as well. It's romantic, but in a real sense, not just a dreamy, unrealistic, way so many movies show it. The characters are great. Another review I read said you don't really get complete characters, but I disagree. My favorite scene is the one on the trampoline. I definitely recommend seeing this hilarious, heart-felt, film, and buying the soundtrack, too. This movie made me want to have my own children, which I never wanted to have before I saw it.
“Away We Go” tries really hard to be a good movie but ends up being too long and very unsatisfying. The movie lost me in two ways – one: the story. Too many questions are left unanswered (for example why would you let your friends’ and family members messy lives influence you on whether on not a place is a good possibility for a new home?) And two: I felt the lead actors were never given a chance to fully develop and help me become emotionally involved with them. That said, I enjoyed the quirky and very entertaining older characters – but then I could watch Catherine O’Hara and Alison Janney read the phone book. If you’re in the mood for a not too deep road flick with occasional heart but very little soul, check it out. If you’re like me and expect more from your movies, not so much.
