Movie review: Road trip movie 'Boundaries' fails to gain traction

The estranged family road movie has become a genre unto itself, especially in the indie world. Perhaps we can blame it on the runaway success of "Little Miss Sunshine," but more likely, it's the easy conventions that make for a quick budget-friendly family movie. The ripe-for-drama contained space, opportunities to incorporate many different quirky characters at stops along the way and a built-in story arc make the genre appealing for many different reasons. But all these films feel the same, and therefore, they aren't very interesting. The genre is too well-trodden and conventional for Shana Feste's "Boundaries" to gain any traction – the tires here are bald.

This installment may have merely shallow ideas, but it's easy to be distracted in the moment by the verve and style "The Orphanage" auteur brings to the beloved dino franchise. It just won't stick with you the second you leave the theater.
