Movie Review: Scenic Route – Haunting Survival Film That Will Leave You Surprised

If there’s one thing this movie did, website like this it was surprise me. My jaw kept on dropping moment after unexpected moment on this relationship film between two friends, more about that of Carter (Dan Fogler) and Mitchell (Josh Duhamel). If anyone said that Josh Duhamel couldn’t act after seeing this film, information pills I’d say they were crazy. The tension is high between Mitchell and Carter as they embark on their destination via the “scenic route” when their truck breaks down in the middle of the road, with no one around to help them and miles away from any sort of city.

But girls like to watch romanticcomedies to laugh, to cry,and basically go “awww….”, a quality missing in ever so famous vulgar romances we’ve lately been subjected to. When In Rome has none of that special, almost fairy tale shine that modern classics such as Sleepless in Seattle, but it is certainly fun, enjoyable and full of scenes that will make you laugh. It is perhaps a bit less romantic than The […]
