Movie Info

Nathan (Cole Williams) is an L.A.-based writer preparing to pen an article about the Napa Valley wine district. Recognizing that a trip to wine country is always more fun

Although more than a little familiar in its road movie-style romantic banter and bickering, the film is easy to take for a number of reasons, including the witty and frequently caustic dialogue.

Self-consciously edgy and romantically limp.

An illuminating glimpse into some of the more challenging complications that contemporary relationships can present.

Interesting, well-acted debut feature from writer-director Russell Brown.

Brown's screenplay and direction, both economical and unshowy, sketch character dynamics in crisp terms that resist the temptation to explain all, beg sympathy or heighten drama for purely histrionic purposes.

I nearly gave up after an incredibly awkward, self-conscious first five minutes, but eventually writer/director Russell Brown finds his groove and sustains it for a long while.

Brown is never clear enough on how he feels about his own characters.

A wisp of a film, dramatically threadbare, and saddled with a brittle and affected performance by Williams.

While clocking in at a relatively painless 75 minutes, Brown fails to come up with anything so fresh and bold in his approach as to make a single one of those worth watching.

While the filmmaking shows natural skill, the movie lacks the energy and passion needed to really engage the audience.

Audience Reviews for Race You to the Bottom

An interesting premise, acted out by completely unbelievable cast.
The main draw for me was Justin (Green Arrow) Hartley, but he has all of five inutes of screen time and even he looked like he knew this was beneath him.
No pun intended.
