Plot summary (from IMDB): Three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other — to become brothers again like they used to be. Their “spiritual quest”, however, veers rapidly off-course (due to events involving over-the-counter pain killers, Indian cough syrup, and pepper spray), and they eventually find themselves stranded alone in the middle of the desert with eleven suitcases, a printer, and a laminating machine. At this moment, a new, unplanned journey suddenly begins.
My summary: I had high hopes for the movie and was disappointed. Maybe it was me. Maybe I was in the wrong headspace (the first time I watched Being There I didn’t think it was funny, now I think it is hilarious – but in a smart way).
Whatever the case, I didn’t like the movie. I thought it was slow and rambling. It felt like it was trying to be smart and funny and ironic, but for me, it didn’t work.
Rating (1-5): 2
