While the movie itself is an uneven, sometimes preachy affair, it's alive with possibilities whenever [Weston's] on screen.

Initially, this low-budget film writes a lot of checks on the First National Bank of Whimsy, but I was astonished when none of them bounced.

A likably goofy, lo-fi indie propelled by the syncopations of a cheesy keyboard - and the cheesy dreams of its hapless heroes.

Inner child? Open road? No, this film is actually about Mr. O'Nan and his wan, scruffy innocence.

An indie about-tell me if this sounds familiar-a brokenhearted sad sack who travels cross-country with a weirdo and a too-hot-for-these-dorks woman on a road trip of healing and self-actualization.

Offering little more than flat karaoke versions of Sundance-style hits, this is strictly an amateur-hour affair.

It's sweet in places, but too similar to every other eccentric film about a going-nowhere artist hiding his inner brilliance under passive-aggressive annoyingness.
