Critic Reviews for Furlough

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

What happens when you send Melissa Leo and Tessa Thompson on a weekend road trip? The talent pairing alone seemed tantalizing enough to warrant further investigation, and I wish "Furlough" had supplied a better answer.

A waste of talent.

March 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Collyer's film assumes the racially-mismatched-buddy form of "48 Hrs." and the contentious central dynamic of "Midnight Run," except that its first draft-grade script lacks the absurdity necessary to elicit laughs, or the depth that might make it moving.

A bit of a mish-mash.
