Begins slowly, meanders somewhat, but yields rich rewards for those who stay with it.

Very slow. I did fast forward through the some parts at the beginning. It ended up being a very touching father/son story.
Woody's wife is a hoot.

this will prove to be a classic film. if you are an alexander payne fan, you'll want to watch it more than once.

Absolutely A1. A classic right up there with the original Christmas Carol. The main character realizes that his life is not a total loss. The black and white filming suits this story. Some of the characters reminded me of certain people in real life. You know we all have one or two of those! The man's son in time understands his father and defends his father. People who have had parents who lived in difficult times, who did alot, and spoke little about them, might be really able to relate to this one. If you are a young person you may just not get it....Absolutely loved it and may just go out and buy it!

Aside from a few good scenes (hence 2 stars), some of which did not follow-through well, this was one boring movie.

A kinda pointless story.

Absolutely wonderful. Small time America with wonderful characters. The joys and laughter and tears of family!

I was so ready to hate this film. But it turned out to be funny and entertaining. I loved the ending.

I gave this wonderful, heartfelt film,
Nebraska FIVE Stars. If one has
had the experience of taking care
of elderly parents this film could tickle
your funny bone and also could reach
down and tug on your heart remembering what it was like to deal
with them along with the frustrations,
the heartaches, and the surprises
that arose along the way. I LOVED
this film, I really LOVED it. I usually
never see a film more than once, but
I know I will see Nebraska again and
again.

Woody: But it says I won.

Receptionist: It says you won if your number
is one of the winning numbers.
I'm sorry, sir.

Receptionist: I hope you guys didn't
have to come too far.
David: Montana.
Receptionist: Oh, my.
… I can give you a free gift,
like a hat or a seat cushion.

… David: He'll take the hat.
Does this happen a lot?

Receptionist: Yeah. Every once in a while.
Usually older people
like your father.
Does he have Alzheimer's?

David: He just believes stuff
that people tell him.

Receptionist: Oh. That's too bad.

David: You didn't win!
Okay? Can't you get
that through your head?
And we're not driving down to Lincoln
over a stupid fantasy!

Woody: It's my own damn fault
for taking you this far.
David: You've got enough money to get by.
You can't drive.
What's the point?
Woody: I want a new truck.

David: Why do you need a truck so bad?
Woody: Just to have it.

Woody: I always wanted a brand-new truck.
Well, what about the
rest of the money?
David: You don't need a million dollars
for a damn pickup truck.
Woody: It's for you boys.
I wanted to leave you something.
David: We're fine, Dad.
We don't need it.

Woody: I just wanted to leave you something.

Kate Grant (at the cemetery with her husband Woody and son David): "There's Woody's mother, Sarah. ...She hated me! She wanted him to marry someone who would milk the cows. I said, 'I ain't fiddlin' with no cow titties; I'm a city girl!' ...The Good Lord did not do Sarah any favors in the looks department... More a man's face than a woman's, really..." David Grant: "...How'd she die?" Kate Grant: "Saw herself in the mirror one day..."
