Rick Robinson is a ladder-climbing law intern from Miami with four days until the Bar Exam. Desperate to score points with his boss (McAllister), he commits to a favor he cannot afford. He ends up in a rundown truck headed to L.A. with his boss’s possessions, his Hollywood-bound niece, and her pet pig. Amidst hitchhikers, breakdowns, and assorted local yokels, Rick finds love, life and maybe himself in this trans-American road trip from hell. – from imdb

“Moving McAllister” is not the best romantic comedy but it has it’s moments. For the most, point many of the scenes in this film do not seem believable. You real cannot believe anything that is happening around them but maybe the trivial love story. The thing that hurts this film is Jon Heder.

Everything around this couple seems so over the top that it is unbelievable. There is nothing that registers emotionally. It is life unbelievable and you are watching a borderline boring film. Sometimes even the love story is unbelievable.

The major thing that hurts “Moving McAllister” is Jon Heder. He is again doing his one-man actor. Every character he is ever played is a varying degree of Napoleon Dynamite. It’s situation where he has let himself get typed cast as this character.

“Moving McAllister” is bare on special features. It only has a behind the scenes featurette and some deleted scenes. The movie previews are for “Ira and Abby”, “Weirdsville” and “Great World of Sound”.

I give it 2/5.
