I really enjoyed this movie, written and directed by Paul Reiser. It tells a nice story of a father and son on a roadtrip, and how they find themselves through spending time together, life lesson definitely intended I'm sure. No Academy awards here, but Peter Falk and Paul Reiser play great parts, and the story is as old as the hills really. Loved it.

This is not a great movie, but it did have its moments for me. The late, great Peter Falk was cut from the same cloth as my Dad. Rough, tough guy exterior, with a soft, gooey center. I wish I had one last chance to take a road trip with him in a vintage used car that he loved. Or to go fishing. Or to a ball game. Or have a couple of beers over a pool game. Or just plain have a heart to heart. Time flies people. Be good to your parents. :)
