  • Once in a while, a movie inspires nothing more than complete apathy. Backseat is such a lackluster work.

    April 18, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Alexander's script considers context anathema, leaving us to wonder, among other puzzlers, why these two jerks are friends to begin with - and, perhaps, on what bad breakup or neglected childhood one may blame the film's dispiriting misanthropy.

  • A road movie that runs out of gas almost immediately after it gets started, Backseat is the sort of quirky indie feature that impresses at festivals but feels wan when experienced under real cinematic conditions.

    April 9, 2008
  • Anyone who's spent a lot of time at independent-film festivals will feel a familiar sinking feeling within the first 10 minutes of Backseat.

    April 3, 2008 | Rating: D+
  • Culturally falling somewhere between Sideways and Dumb and Dumber, this low-rent road movie similarly rides on principles of audience identification, largely minus competent helming, thesping or scripting.

  • Backseat satisfies itself with small observations and minor breakthroughs of self-awareness.

  • To be sure, slapstick misadventures ensue, but there's a sweetness and vulnerability beneath the surface of the boys' sometimes-blue bantering.
