Audience Reviews for A Cool Dry Place

    I'm shocked people aren't amazed at the child actor. Most kids over-act, and it's very annoying. This kid was phenomenal. It's refreshing when a movie has no car chase scenes, explosions, and no one getting shot. Just real life.

    This is one of my favorite Vince Vaughn movies. A single dad trying to be a good father to his adorable son. This is a very heart warming, cute movie.

    Not worth it but maybe that is because Joey Lauren Adams just gets on my nerves.
