A terminally-ill con man and his estranged son endeavor to live on $5 a day during a cross country drive in this road trip comedy from director Nigel Cole (Saving Grace, Calendar Girls). Nat (Christopher Walken) may be a great con man, but as a father to Flynn (Alessandro Nivola) he always came up short. Informed by his doctor that he's suffering from a terminal illness, Nat learns of an experimental treatment that could offer him a second chance at life. But that's all the way on the other side of the country, and in order to make the drive he'll need a wheelman. Enter Flynn: the son Nat never really knew. Despite the bitterness Flynn feels toward his ailing father, he eventually agrees to take the trip. Unfortunately money is tight these days, and if Nat and Flynn hope to reach their destination without coming up short, they'll have to meet the sizable challenge of living on just $5 a day. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Christopher Walken is always great. Sharon stone was excellent, too.
Upbeat, interesting characters, enjoyable, but, a little slow at times. An independent film feel; that's much better than most movies, for sure.
If you are tired of Comic Book Movies and like an actual plot in your movies, then this movie is for you. Great acting and lots of good humor and wit. A movie that doesn't make you feel you want 2 hours of your life back. LOVED IT!
