"With his big blue eyes and neat blond hair, Adam Reed looks is the epitome of the 1950s “All-American” boy. So you believe him when he tells you that Disneyland – Walt’s bastion of patriotism – is so important to his family."
"Directed by RJ Silva, Reed does an impressive job of finding the right tone blending lightness and emotional depth. Extra credit comes for telling someone else’s story as if it were his own."
- Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
