Movie review score
2.5/5

What’s it about?
Greg is a typical millennial with a knack for getting himself into trouble. His loving mother forces the family on a road trip to Grandma’s house.

What we thought
Dan says: The problem with road trip films is that they end up feeling like a bunch of sketches all lined up. Only four of the scenes in the film are required to understand the story and the rest could be shuffled or removed and it wouldn’t be noticed. Some of these scenes are funny. Some are needlessly scatological. Perhaps vomiting on someone’s face is funnier on the page than in full technicolour. At the end of the day this just doesn’t feel like proper movie.
