The Open Road DVD Review

Dear Justin Timberlake,

Anything you do I will love forever. But if you could do comedies all the time, that would be even sweeeeeeeeeeeeter!

Love always,

Okay, now that I have that off my chest...

So, in The Open Road, Justin Timberlake plays Carlton, a minor league ballplayer. Carlton's mother is in the hospital and needs heart surgery. She refuses to get the surgery done until Carlton's father comes to see her. His father is legendary ball-player Kyle Garrett, whom Carlton has not spoken to in four years. Carlton tracks his dad down in Ohio and embarks on a mission to bring him back to Texas to visit his mother. His "friend" comes along for the ride and Carlton comes to realize he wants her to be more than a friend. Along the way, Carlton begins to learn more about his father, while also learning more about himself and his own road in life... very touching. It was some good, wholesome entertainment... with Justin Timberlake!

Family Time Factor: I would say this is more of a date night movie or a movie to watch on rainy afternoons.

MOTR Grade: B+

The Open Road is currently available on Blu-Ray and DVD!!!
