By V.A. Musetto
Director-writer Seth Grossman provides a lazy narrative, with stereotypical characters and plot.

Tells a colorful if conventional tale of dysfunctional Americans abroad. The misadventures of Jake and Oliver play off against the conflicted sympathies of the locals, who simultaneously resent, enjoy, prosper from and exploit the tourist scene.
