Jeff Bridges, Justin Timberlake, and Mary Steenburgen star in writer/director Michael Meredith's tale of a young man looking to reconnect with his long-lost father -- a famous athlete -- and bring him back to the bedside of his ailing mother. Lyle Lovett, Harry Dean Stanton, and Kate Mara fill out the supporting cast in the Perfect Weekend production. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Open Road is no Grand Prix winner, but it's no six-car pileup either. It's a low-key road movie that doesn't stray far from the very, very beaten path.
Despite its dependable cast, this ponderous road movie remains stuck in the slow lane.
An earnestly acted film with a movie-of-the-week vibe, it's watchable but too slow-moving -- and far too predictable -- to be entirely engaging.
The picture contains a few inspired moments of antagonism and redemption, but it's hard to get energized about a feature film that positions Timberlake in a leading role. The movie practically begs for more Bridges.
