| Slow, Without Much Direction
Too slow-paced for me. And it's like the movie couldn't decide if it was about this girl coming out of her shell and overcoming her dad's drowning, or about these teenagers surviving a perilous road trip. And I don't get why they would put up with this drug-using, irresponsible jerk.
