2009 - AWAY WE GO with this piece of s**t comedy

Smarmy piece of miserable self important junk about a couple of pathetic losers about to have a baby. They travel all over the United States to find friends or relatives that will support them after their baby is born. They should have taken the seven million dollar budget for this film and used it for toilet paper, it would have at least provided relief for a few people. I can't even begin to convey the facile tone and shallowness in these characters and their situations. This smug and supposedly funny but in reality unfunny film is borderline offensive in it's condescending attitude to almost every character these people visit. Their final revelation, "there's no place like home. " The filmmakers apparently needed to stoop to stealing from The Wizard of Oz for their homespun morale .

Written by two American writers who apparently lived in a part of the United States only seen in a Mary Worth comic (go ahead and google that reference). This film was directed by Sam Mendes, the British theatrical director who had previously made American Beauty, Jarhead, and Revolutionary Road. Mendes has absolutely no feeling for or any idea about what American culture is even about.

 98 minutes.
