Amazing that they made so much out of so little. Nelson relentlessly pumps out the comedy, and Eenhoorn convincingly counters this bombardment and brings a much-needed splash of sunlight to the film's end.

The breakout star here is Nelson, who practically forces a smile on your face at regular intervals.

Land Ho!'s success is found in its small observations and flawless, off-beat leads.

Stephens and Katz basically rely on the immense screen charisma of their two principals, which largely bails them out.

Unassuming and amiable, this road-trip buddy comedy... belongs squarely in the sub-genre of very-low-budget American indies with untrained actors and improvised dialogue that has been dubbed mumblecore.

"Land Ho!" is a high-spirited and life-affirming film about drinking life down to the last drop. "Don't get that Sunday afternoon attitude," Mitch admonishes Colin near the end of the trip. "It ain't over with yet."
Sep 28, 2014 huge emotional payoff here (the film's shambling nature reminds me of the Dutch documentary Ne me quite pas, about two aging working-class alcoholics), just an hour and a half of pleasant company.

Land Ho! feels like the perfect combination of scripted dialogue and off-the-cuff improvisation.

The scenery is gorgeous, the mood is upbeat and your traveling companions are interesting fellows.

The scenery is lovely, the performances are pleasant, and it's the kind of movie it's hard to imagine anyone walking out of. It's nice. Yeah: It's nice.

Land Ho! delights because it isn't trying to make too much of itself. It's simply a fun movie about two guys who will admit they're getting older, but are damn sure not getting old.

We're happy to go along for the ride with the film's odd couple, who make for interesting character studies -- and, besides, the scenery is stunning. Just don't expect that much will have been accomplished or changed by the time the curtain closes.

The results are an amiable, somewhat rambling film that's certainly not going to change your life but does provide a pleasing 95 minutes at the movies.

Nothing much happens in Land Ho!, which is sometimes charming and sometimes frustrating.

Earl Lynn Nelson is a force of nature as Mitch, a loud, boisterous scene-stealer who breathes comic life into this otherwise low-key road-trip dramedy.

Eenhoorn brings an understated wry quality to his performance that nicely counterbalances Nelson's unflagging bonhomie.

One of my favorite films so far this year.

[An] engaging, low-key character study.

As a performance showcase it's intriguing simply because Eenhoorn and Nelson barely belong to the same species, so different are they in demeanor.
