Movie Info

Lucy Standbridge (Aubrey Plaza) has inherited her father's publishing house, and the ambitious would-be editor has nearly sunk it with failing titles. She discovers she is owed a book by Harris Shaw (Michael Caine), a reclusive, cantankerous, booze-addled author who originally put the company on the map decades earlier. In a last-ditch effort to save the company, Lucy and Harris release his new book and embark on a book tour from hell that changes them both in ways they didn't expect.

Mainly the film is silly and unlikely... which is a shame because Caine can still bring it.

As an undemanding pas de deux, it's sweet enough.

Rather than bounce off each other, Plaza and Caine slide defeated side-by-side down the face of the movie.

Clichés abound and you think you know where this is going. But in her feature debut, Canadian director Lina Roessler manages some genuine surprises.

If there's a central message we should take home and think about, it eludes me.

Roessler's debut is an enjoyable diversion even though Anthony Grieco's screenplay could have been more pointed about the publishing industry.
