Doyle is not interested as he blames Natalie for the divorce and wants nothing to do with Mom's new boyfriend, especially given the man's lowly, working-class roots. This pairing makes for a journey filled with bickering, mishaps and, eventually, bonding. Read More Read Less

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Wally Hammond Time Out It's all assembly-line stuff. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times If a film like this is to be funny at all, it had better work when the warring principals still hate each other, before the rich boy is shown to be a sweet kid and the whole story turns to mush. May 20, 2003 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) A mechanism to extract coarse laughter and false sobs. [Full review in Spanish] Dec 29, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins In a more contemporary movie, Doyle would be in need of some serious psychiatric help - instead of refreshingly old-fashioned disciplining. Rated: 8/10 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed It's not Hughes' worst comedy effort by far, but it surely is by no means his best... Dec 10, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Leandro T Good. Bad acting in some sense, but a fun comedy Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Jeffrey P Back when heartfelt PG-13 comedies were still a thing, before everything got serious, there was Dutch. It doesn't get as much notoriety as other comedies of this type from this time but it manages to be more competent in going about it's business than many of them. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Forged S I've seen several people say they've watched the classic Thanksgiving movie, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," and it reminded me of another holiday classic, "Dutch." We'll, I use the term "classic" loosely as hardly anyone talks about this movie anymore. A shame really because this movie definitely deserves its place in the pantheon of annual traditions. This is Ed O'Neill at his best and while not directed by John Hughes, it has his DNA all over it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Tim O Took awhile to get around to it, but this is going into our annual Thanksgiving Films rotation. It's not quite 'Trains, Planes...', but it's a solid 'odd-companions journey' comedy for the holiday. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Erik B A road trip movie focused on man trying to impress his new girlfriend by picking up her prep school son for the Thanksgiving holiday. Surprisingly dark despite being a comedy. If you know that this movie was written by John Hughes, then you likely know what to expect from the characters. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/23/23 Full Review Justin W This is probably one of the most underrated movies of the 80's-90's era of classic feel good comedies. It's a fantastic take on what life was like, in many ways, in the late 80's-90's. A comedy that touches on a bit of real life back then. Nothing is off limits because we weren't so sensitive about the realities of growing up. We were left home alone for at least a couple hours a week. That wasn't a problem because we were taught to deal with life rather than run and hide from it. There was freedom that we all shared and we weren't afraid of what people said. This is a beautiful movie highlighting the realities of growing up between the 70's and the world of cellphones. It was the perfect time to be a kid and this movie reminds us of that. It's one of the best 80's feel comedies for sure. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
