The end result is a well-intentioned yet terminally underwhelming indie that maintains a nigh passable feel virtually from start to finish...
| Original Score: 2/4
A pleasant, inconsequential indie with deep Minneapolis roots, "Stuck Between Stations" should please youth-oriented Minnesota audiences. It's unlikely to set the rest of the planet on fire.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The movie has a meandery structure and the gimmicky split-screen technique used to distract us from the familiar goings-on doesn't get the job done.
There are no easy payoffs in "Stuck Between Stations," but the chemistry of its stars is reward enough.
| Original Score: 3/5
There's an overapplication of split-screen and woozy soundtrack cues to this end, but Lister Jones and Rosen do an appealing back-and-forth with lively dialogue, not dulled in the interest of realism.
Real people may not be this glib and witty, but Rosen and Lister-Jones sell us on Casper and Becky nonetheless.
Brady Kiernan's Stuck Between Stations has sweetness to it, but it's a sweetness borrowed from innumerable other films and constantly corrupted by biased politics and crass emotional digressions.
| Original Score: 1/4
Stuck Between Stations moved well enough that I wanted to stay with it. It definitely gets to a point where it says something unique.
