Critic Reviews for The Daytrippers

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (12)

A spirited cast, including old pros Amma Meara and younger talent Parker Posey and Stanley Tucci, elevates this claustrophobic sitcom (most of whiche is set in a car) into something fluffier and funnier than it actually is.

Audience Reviews for The Daytrippers

It was very, I don't know, sleepy? Weird, surreal stuff started happening in the middle of these long pauses of nothing. And I spent the entire half of the movie thinking Parker Posey's character had some kind of a mental defect, which I don't think was how she was meant to be interpreted.

wonderful slice of life picture

I hunted down this movie thanks to overwhelmingly good reviews and Parker Posey being in it. Unfortunately Posey's performance was flat, and the movie really wasn't all that funny. Stanley Tucci was great though in a ridiculously small role.
