Away We Go

What's wrong with this movie? Some thoughts in random order.
*Watching actors read a cute McSweeney's story doesn't make for an entertaining hour and a half.
*It's being played for realism while every word is loaded with self-consciousness. The effect is shallowness. The characters are annoying. Alison Janney alone finds her way through the script.
*Maya Rudolph is kind of adrift. I love her. She's great. But she can't hold the screen.
*There's funny stuff here but it's sandwiched between things I feel stupid laughing at.
