  • I follow Justin Timberlake’s music and acting career, mainly because I think he will have a very great acting career
  • I was interested to see him in a dramatic role, because he has done a few comedic roles and I believe he has a comedic gift
  • I enjoyed Timberlake’s dramatic performance, but Jeff Bridges’ performance as a selfish, heavy-drinking ex professional athlete is excellent
  • I found myself being angry with him, and to evoke those kinds of emotions in a viewer means that he was able to be very believable in his role as a bit of a jerk

      I am quite shocked that I never heard of a movie that has Justin Timberlake in it; somehow, the movie Open Road appeared in the movie rental store without me having ever heard of it. I follow Justin Timberlake’s music and acting career, mainly because I think he will have a very great acting career. I was interested to see him in a dramatic role, because he has done a few comedic roles and I believe he has a comedic gift. I had

      only seen a couple of his dramatic roles, so I rented this DVD right away. I was also surprised that Jeff Bridges was in a movie that received so little hype.

      I really enjoyed this movie. Timberlake plays a young man who sets off to find his estranged father (Bridges) for his mother, who is afraid she is going to die and is in the hospital awaiting heart surgery. Accompanying Timberlake is his ex-girlfriend, who he still loves, and they set out to find ...


      • his father, who was a professional baseball player and is on a book tour. They meet up, and Bridges does everything he can not to come with his son to see his ex-wife, but they eventually do. They travel across the country in a rented red Hummer, and along the way, they learn a great deal about each other. The other story-line included Timberlake and his ex-girlfriend reconnecting and discovering that they really want to get back together. The drama is good, and
        there are some very humorous moments, as well as some rather painful ones.

        I enjoyed Timberlake’s dramatic performance, but Jeff Bridges’ performance as a selfish, heavy-drinking ex professional athlete is excellent. I found myself being angry with him, and to evoke those kinds of emotions in a viewer means that he was able to be very believable in his role as a bit of a jerk. The relationships of both father and son and ex-lovers reuniting are heartwarming and I quite enjoyed this movie.
