An agreeable tone and cast make Sherman’s Way go down easy.

The New York Times

By Jeannette Catsoulis
The director, Craig Saavedra, generates surprising warmth from the familiar tropes of the odd-couple road movie. Shooting mostly in the verdant sweep of California's wine country -- and with a superb supporting cast -- he allows Mr. Le Gros room to engage.

Film Threat

Never too dreary, Sherman's Way is a pleasant drama-comedy that's just fun to watch, much like a laid-back drive during the summer; it's not about where you're going, or how you'll get there, but just about how it feels to be in the car driving.

The film simply has too many tiredly predictable elements for its own good, and despite the handsome cinematography of the extremely picturesque California locations, "Sherman's" never really finds its way.

L.A. Weekly

The film is confidently polished, and thankfully more sweet-tempered than preachy, given that every narrative thread has an underlying theme of social injustice.

Los Angeles Times

It's lost-in-life meets lust-for-life in the reliably regenerative wine country, which means most moviegoers could hand this emotionally stranded odd couple a road map of where they'll be by the closing credits.

Coming-of-age road trips have rarely been more tedious or predictable.

Plays like something out of an indie-film paint-by-numbers.

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Unfortunately, this strained comedy relies entirely on clichés and contrivances to tell the story of Sherman.
