Jeff Bridges, Justin Timberlake, Kate Mara
PLOT: In this heartwarming comedy, minor leaguer Carlton Garrett (Justin Timberlake) takes an unexpected road trip to track down his estranged father, legendary baseball player Kyle Garrett (Jeff Bridges) when Carlton?s mother (Mary Steenburgen) becomes sick. Knowing his charming yet painfully immature dad?s likelihood to disappoint, Carlton enlists his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy (Kate Mara) for emotional support. Once reunited, Carlton struggles to deal with the series of misadventures caused by his father?s antics, including missed flights, car trouble and bathroom brawls. Years of miscommunication, frustration and comically awkward attempts at bonding come to a head as the mismatched trio make their way from Ohio back home to Houston to reunite the family.
At the beginning of this movie I was uncertain if I was going to like it cause it starts off kinda slow. But it really ended up being a good story. Love Jeff Bridges, he was great like always. Had really funny one liners. Justin Timberlake was a little stiff for me at the beginning, but he gradually grew on me. Him and Jeff play very well off each other. Wouldn't mind seeing them do another movie together. Haven't seen Kate Mara, in a lot of movies, but the ones I have seen her in, I really liked her acting. Love a road trip movie. Think they are some of the best movies made. So if you like a good road trip movie and a good heartfelt story then I would definitely see this movie.
