Away We Go | Ratings & Reviews

"Emerges as an oddly sour, unappealing road-trip scenario."


"A rewarding change of pace for Sam Mendes, Away We Go is a small, lovely film that gently sneaks up on you with unexpected depth and feeling. Let it."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Does it sound as if I hate this movie? Don't be silly. But don't be fooled. This movie does not like you."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Rudolph, a comic force on "SNL," can speak volumes with the tilt of an eyebrow. She and Krasinski, of "The Office," are absolutely extraordinary. Ditto the film, which sneaks up and floors you."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Burt and Verona are two characters rarely seen in the movies: thirtysomething, educated, healthy, self-employed, gentle, thoughtful, whimsical, not neurotic and really truly in love."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"You have to hand it to Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road), he certainly has a habit of skilfully teasing innocuous set-ups into wonderful little vignettes of life."

Otago Daily TimesOtago Daily Times

"Sam Mendes chills out with this light, fun and heartfelt comedy."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A self-satisfied film about insecure people, a quirky and episodic comic drama that squanders its genuine assets and ends up not as special as it tries to be."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Though it's nice to see Mendes take a looser, not quite so studied approach to his filmmaking, some stops along the way -- like a detour to visit Burt's suddenly single brother (Paul Schneider) -- feel dramatically off-course."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"While cynics may find it twee, Mendes fans should greatly enjoy this (gently) surprising change of direction. Go in with the right frame of mind and you’ll leave with a big, goofy grin on your face."
