Critic Reviews for Passenger Side
Here's one of those shuffling, slovenly American indies that can seem vain and inconsequential, or inviting and oddly profound, depending on the talent involved.
The siblings are a bit like Sense and Sensibility's Elinor and Marianne: quaint but somehow universal.
Funnier and more intelligent than there are any grounds to hope for: an entertaining, wry tour of LA's scuzzier sights.
Bissonnette sidesteps the pitfalls of the indie road movie in some style.
A joy from start to finish. Bissonnette has crafted a unique, funny indie.
Audience Reviews for Passenger Side
The idea nugget for this film is good - two brothers at different stages in life due to circumstances bond on a driving trip around L.A. Too bad the audience has little reason to care. I shrugged after this film. What was the point?
Basing the entire film around Scottâ(TM)s trademarked cynicism creates a genuine Indy classic worthy of mainstream status. The fact that Adam Scott has not made more of a stir in the commercial film world is mind boggling, but to have a star like Scott floating around in the Indy world is a refreshing new experience in many Indy films including his huge success in The Vicious Kind.
Cast: Adam Scott, Joel Bissonnette, Robin Tunney, Gale Harold, Greg Dulli, Rachael Santhon, Kimberly Huie, Maja Miletich, Penelope Allen, Vitta Quinn Director: Matt Bissonette Summary: Michael (Adam Scott) reluctantly agrees to chauffeur his estranged addict brother, Tobey (Joel Bissonnette), around Los Angeles to run errands after his car breaks down -- even though Tobey calls out of the blue, unaware it's Michael's birthday. As the day finds them revisiting old issues and lost loves, the two brothers learn some unexpected lessons about family -- and each other -- in this indie drama. My Thoughts: "It's an simple Indie film. No action, no thrills, and not much of anything goig on that's exciting in this film. It's just two brothers on a road-trip around L.A. in search for Theresa, the love of Tobey's life. What you also get are two brothers bantering back and forth and some very interesting encounters along the way. It is a funny film if you like sarcasm and odd characters. Not the best road-trip/Indie film, but not a bad one either."
