  • The cast is appealing, the location work in Baja is ridiculously colorful, and if you don't go in expecting too much, you won't be disappointed.

  • The scenery's pleasant and the actors are mostly likable. If "Baja" had been made in the '60s, it would have some kitsch appeal. It's easy watching, for anyone who needs a little mind-vacation.

  • Vidal doesn't sufficiently mine the buddy dynamic. He's more interested in the romantic side of things, which would have been fine if his female characters weren't so boring and one-dimensional.

    April 10, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • This tame, tepid road-trip comedy is notably short on laughs - save for a few unintentional ones when it tries to channel serious drama.

  • Baja doesn't have the most original plot nor an overarching style. But the characters are really likable, the actors' chemistry is off the charts, and the cordial ambiance invites the viewer to lay back and have a good time.

    April 30, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The filmmaking is simplistic and the storytelling is often flat-out stupid, so it's never particularly involving.
