Movie Review: Away We Go (2009) Starring Maya Rudolph (Awesome Movie)


Rated R for language and some sexual content.

Mid-thirtysomethings Burt Farlander and Verona De Tessant are a loving couple. Burt has always wanted to marry Verona, but Verona resists, not seeing the point of the institution. Regardless, they are having a baby together, despite questioning their potential parenting abilities. They are happy that they made the decision to move close to Burt’s parents, Jerry and Gloria Farlander, as they want to share the experience with the baby’s grandparents. Verona’s own parents died over ten years earlier, a situation about which she doesn’t like to discuss. In Verona’s sixth month, she and Burt learn that Jerry and Gloria are moving to Antwerpen, Belgium the month before the baby is due, just because it’s something they’ve always wanted to do. Burt and Verona don’t understand what they see as Jerry and Gloria’s selfishness in putting this move above spending time with their impending granddaughter…

I finally got around to checking this out.When it came out I wanted to see it but it got lost in the shuffle.I randomly came across it and if not for Maya Rudolph(got a thing for cute funny chicks) I probably wouldn’t of peeped it.I’m glad I did though its one of the best movies I have seen in a minute.It was not only funny but had a good storyline that comes full circle at the end.Maya Rudolph(lead) who (to me atleast) is always on point and awesome was exactly that in this flick.She nailed the attitude of a pregnant mother to be to a tee. The supporting cast was was beyond great (especially Allison Janney as Lily) and the (lead guy) dude from The Office was on point also.Nothing really more to say about this movie except that its def worth checking out.I give it….
