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

[An] engaging, low-key character study.
August 21, 2014
As a performance showcase it's intriguing simply because Eenhoorn and Nelson barely belong to the same species, so different are they in demeanor.

"Land Ho!" is an indie oddball of a movie that wanders about with two seniors looking to squeeze a bit more out of life. The squeezing is gentle but affirming, just like the film.

It's a visual treat, yet has little else to offer.
August 14, 2014
A road-trip movie about a couple of guys nearing the end of life's road, Land Ho! is a sweetly simple tale that underscores what we already know but too often forget: Adventurism and finding your bliss are not just for the young.

Like most stars of road movies, they're an odd couple; unlike most, both the friction between them and their underlying loyalty feel real, not contrived to supply a movie's dramatic arc.
August 14, 2014
A marvelous slice of lo-fi whimsy about two duffers, longtime acquaintances in the gray zone between middle age and old age, who up and travel from Kentucky to the Land of Fire and Ice.
August 14, 2014
A low-key, odd-couple comedy built mostly around Nelson's coarse ad-libs and Eenhoorn's sighing reactions.

"Land Ho!" is a tepid little movie that goes almost nowhere, and if I had to sit in that rental car for one more boob joke, I'd rather jump into a volcano.
August 8, 2014
The movie is pleasant and mostly forgettable, except for the character of Mitch.

Small, unexpected moments elevate Land Ho!

You realize fairly early in the film that there will be no emotional payoff. Just an hour and a half of vacation photos in motion.
July 24, 2014
The road-trip comedy is well-traveled territory, especially in indie films. But there's something unexpectedly refreshing about "Land Ho!"
July 17, 2014
The juxtaposition of mundane silliness and those primordial, mythic landscapes proves unexpectedly magical.
July 16, 2014
Land Ho! makes it possible to engage with its subjects' pathos and experience their sense of renewal along with them, and concludes with the lingering sense that their adventure has only just begun.

The gorgeous scene stealer in this gentle-spirited road movie is the country of Iceland, depicted in breathtaking wide-angle shots by cinematographer Andrew Reed.
July 15, 2014
Yes, this is yet another bromance, but for people who remember when that was just called friendship.
July 15, 2014
What turns the trip around, though, for the odd couple and for us, is their bond of deep friendship, and the slow thawing of their frozen lives in a chilly climate.
July 15, 2014
Land Ho! is well worth an expedition to the movie theater.
