This movie is awesomely bad. The acting is terrible and the storyline is ridiculous. I watched it to see Anthony Rapp, who is adorable and the only reason I enjoyed the movie. Good for laughs!

Good movie
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie does several things pretty well. First, Drew Barrymore's character is really well drawn. She's sensitive, consumed by her own emotions, and, well, horny. Unlike the teenagers in so much of today's cinema, Drew's character has a total lack of attitude, she's fueled by feelings, not cliches. This is all done in a subtle way, and that makes her very likable and sympathetic. Also, the "far from home" atmosphere is created nicely. You really do feel as if you're in the last place on earth, with all these oddball characters either trying to get out or else slowly losing their sanity from the isolation and desolation. These things contrast well and give the film a really uneasy feeling. The totally naive girls put in a dangerous place - but of course she doesn't know it's dangerous. It could so easily descend into melodrama, but it doesn't because of the skillfulness with which it is crafted. The other characters are also well done - everyone has a very definite personality and they all add together to create the atmosphere - exactly what you might expect to find in such a place, but of course you've never thought about it before because who would want to?Overall, an effective film."
The Best Movie You've Never Heard Of
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Far From Home is by far one of my favorite movies with such classic lines as 'Did I scare you?' and 'Where are you going?We were playing keep-away!' The reason many people didn't like it,though,was because of the uncomfortable desert setting.But the story is full of subtle details that will require multiple viewings to catch.Sure the movie has one or two script flaws(beware the 'Have you ever...done it' scene and try to ignore some of Drew's narrations)and a poorly-placed sex scene (I'd rather see Drew swimming anyday) but,thanks to a great story and a superb cast,I think this is one of the best movies noone has ever heard of."
Great movie

(4 out of 5 stars)

"A very good movie, wrongly crucisfied by the critics. I was on the edge of my seat watching this film, and you could never tell what was going to happen. Drew Barrymore proved in this film she was going to be the great actress she turned out to be."
