The Daytrippers (1997)
Critic Consensus: Its modest scale and scabrous sense of humor may feel more punishing than funny for some, but an excellent cast and authentic sense of place make The Daytrippers a smooth ride.

Critic Reviews for The Daytrippers
Thanks to the superb cast and Mottola's deft touch, this modest-looking comedy proves quite memorable.
A spirited cast, including old pros Amma Meara and younger talent Parker Posey and Stanley Tucci, elevates this claustrophobic sitcom (most of whiche is set in a car) into something fluffier and funnier than it actually is.
I do not mean to criticize Meara herself. She is, almost by definition, superb at her assignment here, which is to create an insufferable mother. The film's problem is that she does it so well.
Criterion's new release allows this bittersweet tale of becoming to reach a wider audience.
The climactic twist is not only obvious but also registers as a stunt, and the ending is far too abrupt. On the plus side, the performances are uniformly excellent.
Audience Reviews for The Daytrippers
It was very, I don't know, sleepy? Weird, surreal stuff started happening in the middle of these long pauses of nothing. And I spent the entire half of the movie thinking Parker Posey's character had some kind of a mental defect, which I don't think was how she was meant to be interpreted.
