There's no avoiding the fact that Christopher Rowley's feature debut is as uninspired and predictable as your average Lifetime movie.

Bonneville is so bland and predictable, it literally takes two Oscar-winners and a multiple nominee to give it any real entertainment value.

Yes, the film deals with women of an age who are usually ignored in film, and it further deals with questions of mortality and loss, which are equally overlooked. The problem is, it doesn't deal with them very well.

February 29, 2008
It's the three leads who really make this material work. Lange is very sympathetic and relatable as Arvilla, while Bates injects some needed humor. And Allen is pitch-perfect as usual, as the film's moral center of sorts.
February 29, 2008
Except for Jessica Lange's silent, expressive close-ups, the women's journey in Bonneville is aesthetically and dramatically unremarkable.

The '66 Bonneville was a great car, but these talented ladies deserved a better vehicle.

February 28, 2008
The actresses make certain you understand their motivations and quirks. It helps Bonneville step away from Lifetime Television treacle into something palatable. Perhaps even charming.

February 28, 2008
The kind of comfy, reassuring take on human relations that makes cynics want to growl at the stranger sitting next to them.

It took brass hubcaps to make Bonneville, a midlife-chick-road-trip movie starring a '66 Pontiac convertible and a trio of middle-aged driving girlfriends in cool sunglasses, and not once have the gals give props to Thelma & Louise.

In Bonneville, a talented cast is wasted, falling victim to a tired, cliche-ridden story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 28, 2008
Bonneville insults its talented leads by casting them in parts they could have--and probably have--done in their sleep.
February 27, 2008
A road movie that boasts pleasant company but a broken-down vehicle...in a story that seems ready-made for the Lifetime Network.

It feels like the first healthy sign of post-Borat unification.

The actors make us happy to be along for the ride.

At the very least, Bonneville deserves to be seen as a challenge and a rebuke to our supposedly youth-obsessed age.
February 27, 2008
Open the big cinema floodgates and Bonneville is just a trickle of Poland Spring, but the trio of ladies are always watchable.
February 27, 2008
This rarity in cinema -- a graying cast in a female-bonding adventure -- couldn't be more dull-humored or predictably maudlin without just calling itself The Bucket List 2.
February 26, 2008
A tragic waste of time and talent in every sense of the word.
| Original Score: 4/10
February 25, 2008
The director needed to get a better grip on the destination of this scattered narrative, along with the actual journey. Though the sheer pleasure of Bonneville is simply watching these three gifted actresses work their magic on the movie.
June 21, 2007
This is Pablum masking as a tragi-comic chick flick, and should be avoided by all thinking people.
