Consensus: A road movie that's not only sexy, but intelligent as well.

New York Magazine/Vulture

The funniest and most emotionally charged erotic road movie since Bertrand Blier's Going Places.

Mark Caro

Raunchy, smart, ebullient, melancholy, insightful, surprising, funny, frank and sexy as all get-out.

Sophie Gorman

Marvelous, merry and, yes, melancholy film.

Part travelogue, part road picture, part meditation on class, mortality and intimacy, this extraordinary little movie might be the perfect harbinger of summer, as astute as it is steamy.

Andrea Beach
Common Sense Media

Bittersweet road-trip movie with graphic sex, language.

A giddy and provocative sexual romp that has something to say.

Easily one of the sexiest and funniest films about class struggle ever made.

Jason Bailey
