Critic Reviews for Best Friends Forever

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

The destruction of Los Angeles isn't enough to enliven this muddled road movie.

Top Critic

A hidden 2013 gem, and one that warrants a watch for fans of classic road trip films.

Full Review… | October 12, 2013
Cinema Crazed

Smartly stylish, refracting familiar fictional events and themes through a little-used cinematic prism: that of women's perspectives.

Flick Filosopher

an honest, down-to-earth look at what might happen when everything around you crumbles, yet it manages to have its heart in the right place

Film School Rejects

Best Friends Forever isn't as deep as it thinks it is.

Aisle Seat

Despite some very strong elements, the wavering focus of Best Friends Forever causes it to fall far short of its potential.

Audience Reviews for Best Friends Forever

Best Friends Forever is basically a buddy road trip movie. What sets it apart from other road movies is that their is a nuclear apocalypse while they are traveling. Sort of a Thelma and Louise meets Mad Max combination except that nobody is driving around in muscle cars. Instead the two protagonists are crossing the desert in a Mercury Pacer. Brea Grant plays Harriet, a comic book artist who lives in LA with her best friend Reba (Vera Miao). Harriet is looking to make some changes in her life and has decided to move to Austin to work at a library and go back to school. She convinces Reba to come along with her on the road trip. While they are traveling, LA and several other major cities are destroyed by a nuclear attack. Since Harriet and Reba are in the middle of nowhere in the desert, they are unaware of the events that have taken place. They blissfully continue on their journey until they decide to pick up a group of hipsters who are hitchhiking. The young men end up stealing Harriet's car and all of her and Reba's belongings leaving them to fend for themselves. While they try and find their way back to civilization their friendship is tested as they try to work together to survive. To check out our full review head on over to our awesome film site at
