  • The appealing odd-couple chemistry between Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan helps Drive-Away Dolls power past its overly familiar screenplay and erratic execution.

    It's a mixed-bag of some very familiar stuff... Like a watered-down "Greatest Hits" collection.

    Terrible... This is the least fun I've had with a Coen associated-movie since Burn After Reading.

    With only one brother in the driver’s seat, this is a sex comedy with the consciously artificial, smart-dumb patter of an old Steve Martin movie. Yet, ushered in alongside is Coen’s partner and longtime collaborator Tricia Cooke...
