Critics Consensus

Watching grass grow would likely be more entertaining than this dull, slight feature about a sod salesman.

  • The movie has its flaws, but they are few and forgivable.

  • Southern whimsy, when handled delicately, can produce a precious jewel a la Junebug. In less skillful hands, it can be merely precious.

  • Knoxville tries hard and exudes a certain likability, but can't really handle big dramatic moments at this point in his career.

    November 4, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • A weird, unpleasant little movie.

    November 4, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • Although the film starts off somewhat amusingly, the first-time feature director Katrina Holden Bronson seems to have spent more energy assembling the overbearing soundtrack than expanding on her characters' fractured relationships.

    November 3, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Anyone looking for a paean to the unnatural allure of a sprinklered lawn can see that the grass is greener in Blue Velvet.

    I don't know if this movie is trying to be funny or serious.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Daltry Calhoun", Daltry Calhoun(Johnny Knoxville) is on the surface a very successful man, having made his fortune from inventing a new brand of turf.(Daltry's dream is to host a USGA sponsored tournament on a golf course on the property he owns.) Having seen one of his commercials, Daltry's ex, May(Elizabeth Banks), and their daughter, June(Sophie Traub), a precocious 14-year old with dreams of attending Julliard, arrive in town to see him. May is dying and wants to find a good home for her daughter before she dies. But Daltry is actually on the verge of ruin, brought on by the side effects of his invention...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Daltry Calhoun" is not a bad movie, exactly, but it also has nothing new to say about the changes in life and being prepared for them. The movie tries to rely on a quirky charm which is frankly not there. And Knoxville does make for an awkward lead.[/font]
