D: Peter Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber To, Hall Pass, The Heartbreak Kid; Me, Myself & Irene; There’s Something About Mary, Kingpin, Dumb and Dumber).
S: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini.
Acting, dialogue and tone work in harmony to create a charismatic buddy road movie of substance. Deftly humorous and moving without resorting to the saccharine. Likely to become a Christmas staple.
