  1. Reviewed by: Aaron Hillis
    Krakowski’s modestly charming culture-shock comedy has an unusual midpoint game changer, as it suddenly mutates into an intimate familial-generational drama.
  2. Reviewed by: Michael Ordona
    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. Reviewed by: Nicolas Rapold
    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. Reviewed by: Doris Toumarkine
    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.

    Has a split personality. It starts as a comedy but morphs into an icky family melodrama. It should have stuck with the yuks.
