Critic Reviews for Furlough

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.

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.

"Furlough" is funny and active, remaining compelling while it details small acts of connection and evasion.

A bit of a mish-mash.
