Time Expired is a 2011 drama-comedy film directed by David VonAllmen and written by Jeffery Jesmer. The film stars Don Taylor, Eric Starkey, and Bob Hensley. The plot follows the lives of two estranged brothers, Clay and Dale, who reunite after their father's death to sort out his affairs. As the brothers spend time together, they discover that their father had one last request for them: to fulfill his dream of being buried at sea. However, the brothers soon learn that carrying out their father's request is easier said than done.
The movie opens with Clay (Don Taylor) receiving news of his father's passing. He sets out on a road trip to reunite with his brother Dale (Eric Starkey), who has been estranged from the family for years. Clay's plan is to convince Dale to join him in fulfilling their father's last wish.
When the brothers finally meet up, they are both surprised at how much they have changed, and the years of resentment between them become apparent. Nevertheless, Clay manages to convince Dale to join him on his mission, and they set out on a journey to bury their father's ashes at sea.
On the way, the brothers face numerous obstacles that put their mission in jeopardy. First, they are forced to deal with the fact that their father's ashes were divided in half, one for each brother, and they must find a way to unite the ashes. Clay and Dale's relationship grows increasingly tense as old wounds are reopened, but they are forced to put aside their differences and work together if they want to fulfill their father's last request.
The movie's humor comes from the contrast between their quest and the absurd situations they encounter along the way. For example, they encounter a wild and unpredictable tow-truck driver who pulls their car away while they are still in it. They also have to deal with a group of thieves who steal their car, including their father's ashes. These misadventures force the brothers to call upon their ingenuity and resourcefulness to overcome the obstacles and continue their mission.
In addition to the comedic moments, the film also has serious undertones that explore the themes of family, forgiveness, and redemption. The brothers' reconciliation is at the heart of the movie, and their journey to carry out their father's last wish forces them to confront their past and come to terms with the feelings they have for each other.
The acting in the movie is strong, with both Don Taylor and Eric Starkey delivering convincing performances as the two brothers. Bob Hensley, who plays a local fisherman they encounter on their journey, delivers a memorable performance.
The film's cinematography is also notable for its beautiful, sweeping shots of the ocean and the countryside, which create a sense of openness and freedom that underscores the brothers' journey.
Overall, Time Expired is a heartwarming and entertaining movie that combines humor and drama to explore complex family relationships. The movie's themes and its adept handling of the emotions of the story make it a compelling and emotionally satisfying experience.
