Critic Reviews for How I Got Lost

The problem with writer-director Joe Leonard's well-intentioned road trip is that the skill of his actors is undercut by slick moodiness, dime-store philosophizing and an egregiously low-burning pace.

Audience Reviews for How I Got Lost

A pretty lackluster independent film that seemed somewhat undercooked. The story meandered and couldn't seem to make up its mind whether it was a buddy movie, a romantic drama, or a road trip film. Andrew (Aaron Stanford) and Jake (Jacob Fishel) come across as two slackers, shaken by the events of 9/11, who set off on a trip to Andrew's hometown. Jake's break-up with Sarah (Nicole Vicius), meant to add poignancy, only served to keep the film unfocused. There are a few scattered interesting scenes, and the scenery as they cross Pennsylvania is pleasant, but it just seemed like the filmmakers missed an opportunity to give us a reason to care about what happened to these guys. If anyone got lost here, it had to be the director. He obviously didn't know where he was trying to go, nor did he know how to get us there.

essentially a coming of age story for 30-year olds. Story structure is loose at best....every line of dialogue makes you cringe...
