The debut from writer/director Greg Mottola, The Daytrippers follows a Long Island family as they make a disastrous journey into New York City. The impetus is a love letter discovered by suburbanite Eliza (Hope Davis) which seemingly incriminates her publisher husband Louis (Stanley Tucci) in an extramarital affair. To solve the mystery, Eliza, her parents (Anne Meara and Pat McNamara), her oddball sister Jo (Parker Posey) and Jo's boyfriend Carl (Liev Schreiber) all pile into the family station wagon in a misbegotten attempt to track Louis down. Beginning as a playful, satiric look at family dynamics, The Daytrippers occasionally loses its way, becoming increasingly dark and venomous as it rushes towards the revelations of its final moments. For all of its flaws, however, it's often an engaging debut.

Daytrippers 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

I jumped at the chance to purchase this, since I had been impressed by a glimpse at a part near the end of the film, and the reviews were excellent. The cast is great. However, this release is in full screen (pan and scan) rather than the theatrical format, and none too good at that. I don't recommend it, although the movie is still good enough to be watchable despite the poor transfer. It's not worth the price.
