This isn't a film; it's a one-act high-school play. Feel free to leave Prince Avalanche flailing in the wilderness.

An offbeat story with an unfocused director and narrative, Prince Avalanche becomes a mere lucid dream of cinematic enjoyment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

This is ultimately an acting showcase gone awry, and you wind up feeling as agitated and bored as the main characters.

The performances disappoint.

While I'm happy David Gordon Green is returning to his roots, Prince Avalanche is sometimes about as interesting as watching Alvin and Lance's painted road lines dry.

Prince Avalanche is about as low-key and subtle as contemporary filmmaking has to offer. Unfortunately, Green's latest effort is also one of the more grating and sluggish films in recent memory.

Flashes of oddball invention can't quite lift Prince Avalanche out of its own meandering fog.
August 14, 2013
Prince Avalanche isn't quite the character study it seems to want to be. Green sometimes bobbles the tone and focus, lurching from deadpan comedy to self-indulgent navel-gazing to underplayed ghost story.

For those who've come for the juvenile humor, the film has very little to offer. Unfortunately, there is nothing particularly moving or substantive, either.

Prince Avalanche is a slow burn and it does grow on you over time, but despite the central pair sharing undoubted chemistry, the movie's dialogue isn't as riveting as it needed to be and it inevitably feels a little flat.

"Prince Avalanche" boasts a genial, freewheeling spirit that has its charms but isn't quite substantial enough to carry a whole feature.
August 8, 2013
The film ultimately plays like an unfinished thought. It's a good thought, mind you, but like the road, it seems to go nowhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Did I just really pay good money to watch this?

"Prince Avalanche" is a molehill that dreams it's a mountain when it's really, really stoned.
August 10, 2013
...the most bilious movie since Lars and the Real Girl.

Cute, but thin.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 30, 2013
Both lead performances help give the film moments of eccentric charm, even if it's pretentious as a whole.
August 6, 2013
You'll love the film when it's being quiet; alas, it begins a slow slide toward cutesy meeting of the minds, which, even in these capable actors' hands, comes off like an indie cliché.

Rudd, in particular, gives it everything he's got, but he is vanquished by a story that feels both inconsequential and contrived.
October 21, 2013
A patience-testing two-hander about a pair of bickering oddballs spending an irritable summer painting traffic lines in the middle of fire-ravaged woodland.
