There were two types of Kodak films. One to be printed in photographic paper and another to be projected in slides like the one Ed uses in the movie. Both developing processes were different too and had 12, 24 and 36 shot roll lengths. Kodachrome slide film came in 2 different ASA ratings, 25 and 64. Kodacolor film was for printed pictures ASA 100. Kodachrome 64 was used by Ed (distinctive red and yellow box). See more »


The drum kit Ben plays is too new to have belonged to Matt like Ben says. Those two haven't even seen each other for at least ten years, but the Sonor Vintage Series drum kit came on the market in 2015. See more »

Predictable sentimentality
23 May 2018 | by NikkoFrancoSee all my reviews

Estranged father and Son going on a road trip isn't entirely new material. Ed Harris as the father , Ed Harris as he is always delivers. Jason Sudeikis for some reason always looks like a Mister Know it all in many of his roles, it makes one wonder if he has other facial expressions or emotional depth, he always appears to be the same person in all his roles.

If you're a baby boomer like me, you will feel the nostalgia we have pre-selfie era. There is something magical with how the old cameras worked and the placing of the film roll. Indeed those were the days.

You'll know what happens in this film, predictable as it is there are still some charming elements in it.
