Movie Info

The debut from writer/director Greg Mottola, The Daytrippers follows a Long Island family as they make a disastrous journey into New York City. The impetus is a love letter discovered by suburbanite Eliza (Hope Davis) which seemingly incriminates her publisher husband Louis (Stanley Tucci) in an extramarital affair. To solve the mystery, Eliza, her parents (Anne Meara and Pat McNamara), her oddball sister Jo (Parker Posey) and Jo's boyfriend Carl (Liev Schreiber) all pile into the family station

A spirited cast, including old pros Amma Meara and younger talent Parker Posey and Stanley Tucci, elevates this claustrophobic sitcom (most of whiche is set in a car) into something fluffier and funnier than it actually is.

Unfortunately, to reveal that this funny family movie is bisexual actually will ruin the film for anyone who wants to see it.

Will open your eyes to the role of respect as a keystone to durable love.

... quiet, thoroughly convincing little movie

After an hour and a quarter of dead pan humor that only works in fits and spurts, the film finally comes alive in the last ten minutes.

Audience Reviews for The Daytrippers

It was very, I don't know, sleepy? Weird, surreal stuff started happening in the middle of these long pauses of nothing. And I spent the entire half of the movie thinking Parker Posey's character had some kind of a mental defect, which I don't think was how she was meant to be interpreted.
