"Land Ho!" 

Old dogs, lame tricks

Grandpa gets his groove back in "Land Ho!" an episodic road trip comedy about aging friends.

Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) and Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) as they travel through picturesque Iceland. Perpetually horny Mitch, somehow always ready with a pot hookup and an off-color joke, is the instigator of the impromptu trip, hoping it will cheer Colin up after his recent divorce.

Throughout the journey, Mitch's dominating personality occasionally grates on the more reserved Colin, but it comes as no surprise when we learn that underneath all the bluster, he's got a good heart. There's not much plot to speak of, though at one point the duo is joined by Mitch's young, 20-something cousin, who coincidentally happens to be passing through while on vacation with her friend.

Directors Aaron Katz and Martha Stephens take a laidback approach to the proceedings, allowing the actors to take center stage, and Eenhoorn in particular delivers a marvelous performance. The film's low-key charm lies in the leads' amusing odd-couple comic energy paired with the lovingly photographed Icelandic scenery.
