Critic Reviews for Vacationland
The autobiographical script meanders and the acting never solidifies. Besides, the leads look too old to be in high school -- maybe even college.
A generic coming-of-age movie whose arrival on the scene suggests that the audience for gay indie clunkers is inexhaustible.
... Todd Verow's overstuffed Vacationland promises more than it delivers in just about every sense.
Vacationland remains marred by sluggish script and Verow's inability to either direct actors or cast ones whose thesping ability matches their good looks.
Though Verow attended the American Film Institute and has made more than a dozen shorts and features since 1994, his low-budget gay-themed films are characterized by phenomenal indifference to framing, sound quality and performance.
