FOUR LANE HIGHWAY is an okay first film, but not one that we haven't seen before. McCormick really doesn't offer any new insights into relationships or love affairs and the trite ending feels something of a cop out.

The cinematic equivalent of a cheesy, confessional acoustic-guitar ballad sung in a café by a heart-on-his-sleeve kid looking to pick up girls.

Give McCormick credit for the high-risk task of writing an essentially four-person piece in which three of his leads are self-loathing.

The film seems preoccupied with figuring out whether it's a delayed development coming of age mood piece, or a college romance turned offbeat road movie.

If marginally less smug than Noah Baumbach's Kicking and Screaming, McCormick's film is just as trapped in juvenile navel-gazing: The fact that his characters are in their 30s only makes them more insufferable.

The director's earnest intentions can't overcome a formulaic story and confusing time structure, let alone performances that feel distinctly amateurish.
