| Funny, heartwarming
"Shifting Gears" is a fun, family-friendly, and touching film. Terrific cast. Adam Hicks shined as the youngest Williamson, the sincere, loveable teenager whose relationship with his father Tom drives much of the story. R. Keith Harris's performance is enjoyable whether he is provoking tears or laughter. C. Thomas Howell offered timely comedic moments while John Ratzenberger was a convincing nemesis, quite the opposite of gentle, fun-loving Cliff. Emmet Walsh was perfect for the Cheerwine-soaked-snuff-spitting bench-sitting man of mystery, and Brooke Langton was just right for the role of Carol, Tom's wife, bringing wisdom and warmth, keeping us, and her husband, grounded. The car racing scenes were authentic, if a bit too sparse. The engine sounds could have been amplified a bit more. Occasionally, serious material was treated with a bit of comedic effect that came across as out of place, as with the "Eat My Dust," "Kiss My Grits" verbal father-son sparing, a critical moment in their relationship that called for something a bit less silly-sounding. All in all, though, an enjoyable, feel good movie for everyone.
