  1. Krakowski’s modestly charming culture-shock comedy has an unusual midpoint game changer, as it suddenly mutates into an intimate familial-generational drama.
  2. Paved with clichés, the apparently well-meaning Looking for Palladin is a long journey with no new places.
  3. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    Amiable but uneven.
  4. 40
    Requiring cuts, some sense of direction, and dialogue that doesn't either declare or dither, the film looks like it was fun to make.
  5. A semicoherent, overacted mélange of travelogue, farce and suds.
  6. Krakowski's heavy-handed overreaching is the fatal problem: It's impossible to believe this character, even as he softens late in the game, as a forgiving and familiar victim of awful parenting.
  7. 25
    Has a split personality. It starts as a comedy but morphs into an icky family melodrama. It should have stuck with the yuks.
