It's to the actors' credit that they retain their authenticity amidst all these well-cast but cartoonishly drawn cutouts. Then again, perhaps Mendes's point was to throw Burt and Verona into relief by making everyone else a little ridiculous,

I began to realize why I'd been resisting the film all along, in spite of its dogged charm. None of the places the couple visit seems remotely real.

Overall, the movie was touching, funny at times, and really conveyed an imperfect couple's search for the perfect parenthood.

In this movie about finding a place to call home, the final destination is telegraphed almost immediately - and it's a postcard spot that looks as artificial as the conflict that got us there.

Away We Go is a thoughtful attempt to refine a meaning of marriage and family, to locate it, plant it and root it.
June 22, 2013
This movie lives in a bubbleland of its main two characters' heads, who shamble along to and fro, never really engaging the planet or stepping outside themselves in any noteworthy way.

While the rest of us have been sitting around contentedly with 3-D glasses on our faces, Sam Mendes has been quietly redefining the American family drama.

Really deserved to have a bigger following.

"Away We Go" shared the similarly episodic flutter of familial comedy with "Flirting with Disaster," but evolved to something more than a screwball finish. Ultimately, home represents only all that we can control of the sadness that surrounds us.

Delicado, inteligente e sensível como o casal principal, este talvez seja o mais coeso dos trabalhos de Mendes ao substituir seu cinismo e pessimismo habituais por uma visão doce e otimista da natureza humana.

Nails the melancholy state of being both unsure about living in this world and essentially hopeful about it.
December 13, 2009
Despite his reputation as a visually stylish director, Sam Mendes has taken a very low-key approach to Away We Go and by doing so has made his best film since American Beauty.

Sam Mendes' Away We Go is two thirds of a good film. Many good laughs. A decent concept. No follow through.

Mendes paints in broad strokes, but in this case he seems little more than an interpreter of his screenwriters' obsession with innocence.

December 9, 2009
An unconvincing premise is turned into a must-see heartwarming romantic comedy.
December 9, 2009
Away We Go is merely a bemused sigh of relief. It is not the most memorable film of recent times, but does little wrong as it goes about its business.

December 7, 2009
This story of a couple searching for connection and finding in the main grotesques, should be a touch more charming that it actually is. A hint of smugness mars the tone of the film.

It's the sincerity of the performances by Krasinski and Rudolph that makes you want to see how the journey will end for the couple they play.

December 7, 2009
The fact that director Sam Mendes always gives off the impression that he's oh-so-much-smarter than his characters doesn't help.

The film is a bit too sentimental and rather flat, despite some amusing scenes
