Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

An amiably dorky priest (Little) goes on a forced sabbatical; what better way to spend his new free time than on an impromptu canoe trip with his long-lost rocker buddy (Longstreet)? Anyone who caught writer-director Todd Rohal's The Guatemalan Handshake (2006) knows that he likes to lace his indie realism with generous helpings of lysergic weirdness. So it's no surprise that what starts out as a beer-soaked cringe comedy about stunted masculinity ends up deep in the woods with noise-loving Japanese tourists and exploding craniums---or that such detours into psychotronic oddity for its own sake can make even a 75-minute running time feel like an eternity. Still, kudos for the oh-so-clever title.
