Critic Reviews for 95 Miles to Go
Ray Romano makes a quick comedy tour and an intern films it. But much of the onstage material is recycled, and the down-time banter is more irritating than entertaining.
If you've had a hole in your heart since Everybody Loves Raymond ended, Tom Caltabiano's low-key documentary about star Ray Romano ought to fill the gap nicely.
You've seen him be funny on TV for nothing, but you'll have to shell out $10.75 to see Ray Romano unwrap a Subway sandwich.
95 Miles to Go comes across as a second banana's unwitting bid for sympathy and attention.
The mangy joke in the defiantly homemade documentary 95 Miles to Go is that Ray Romano on a business trip is no different from any other schmo, minus the autograph signing.
Following someone around for a while isn't always interesting,
The film contains relatively little footage of Romano performing on stage. What it offers instead is a surprisingly unvarnished look at the machinery of show business.
Romano and Caltabiano mostly watch TV and squabble about whose fault it is they're running a few minutes late.
Nothing of real import transpires in 95 Miles to Go, which at times comes close to resembling a glorified home movie.
could have been an absolute stunner of fame-induced paranoia, but it's happy where it is
There's nothing here that will make anyone stop loving Raymond, but nothing to convert newbies either.
What you see is what you get. Ray, with all his neuroses in evidence, doesn't have a problem sharing his insecurities and he comes across as a genuinely nice guy, with more charm than angst.
Audience Reviews for 95 Miles to Go
Documentary film about a one-week tour Ray Romano did in-between his show of Everybody Loves Raymond. It's kind of a pointless film since all we see if Ray Romano and a friend of his going from hotel to hotel around cities in Florida and other states in the South, making appearances and doing stand-up comedy. However, I could not help but laugh my heart out through the whole thing. Ray Romano is at times just as funny in real life as he is on TV.More
