Not since Larry David's Sour Grapes has a movie kicked off by so thoroughly painting its protagonists as deeply unlikable souls.

Breezy, harmless and mildly engaging, but ultimately insipid and forgettable.

Charts the contrived awakenings of two caricatures.

The "fish-out-of-water-coming-of-age" genre loses so much ground in Craig Saavadra's tedious indy comedy that you

LeGros isn't bad, but this pre-DVD road trip feels like it's four hours long.

Director Craig Saavedra and writer Tom Nance's collaboration plays like something out of an indie-film paint-by-numbers.

Shulman, though, who also produced, is a personality drag, unable to make us care that Sherman's off-putting arrogance warrants even by-the-numbers enlightenment.

Sherman's Way manages to be a road movie that never gets very far because it keeps going around in circles.

A victim of its own bad timing, Craig M. Saavedra's buddy-comedy-cum-road-trip-flick might've had a chance back before the world started going to hell.

Cute fish-out-of-water comedy is a lightweight but inoffensive time-waster.

You'll want to make your way to Sherman's Way. In a cynical world, we need more sweet comedies like this charmer. Prepare to fall in love with life again.
