Critic Reviews for Down the Road Again

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • It's a worthy companion piece to its raw and jagged partner, maybe a bit old-fashioned, maybe a bit too sweet, but imbued with wisdom, heart and good intentions.

    October 20, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Shebib, who would probably be the first to admit that Goin' Down the Road is a hard act to follow, tells the story in Down the Road Again with energy and humour and he gets terrific performances from his cast.

    October 21, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Returning to the characters he created in 1970, Shebib has made a wheezy, flat and unnecessary follow-up that tries in the clumsiest way imaginable to slap a happy ending on the first film's downbeat story.

Audience Reviews for Down the Road Again

  • Oct 27, 2011
    The sequel to Don Shebib's Canadian landmark, Goin' Down the Road... thirty years later! Such an audacious project that I had to watch it, and I'm glad I did. As with the original, you don't quite get behind the characters right away, but about a third of the way through, you realize that you're rooting for them. This time around, the story centres around Joey's death, and his instructions to Pete regarding how he'd like his remains disposed of. The trip happens in reverse this time, from the RoC - that means "Rest-of-Canada," friends from other countries - to the maritimes, and Pete's estranged daughter, a sparkplug played spunkily by Kathleen Robertson, tags along for the ride. It's not without its corny moments, but in a way, the film's a courageous one, not afraid to be sentimental so long as it rings true. It worked for me, it might not for you, but as a pair, Shebib's Pete and Joey movies are signposts in Canadian film, and you should probably see them once.
