Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If the actors playing the brothers show little fraternal similarity, their performances are convincingly natural."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times

‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
"A small but scrappy road-tripper [with a] solid sense of place and sure-handed blend of poignancy and unsentimental humor."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

‑ Sam Adams, Time Out New York
