Mitch, a bawdy former surgeon, convinces mild‐mannered Colin, his ex‐brother‐in‐law, to embark on an unplanned trip to Iceland with him. In an effort to get their grooves back, the odd couple set off on a road trip that takes them through trendy Reykjavík to the rugged outback. Mitch and Colin’s picaresque adventures through Iceland evolve into a candid exploration of aging, loneliness and friendship.

Offbeat buddy comedy has language, drinking, some drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Land Ho! features some frank conversations between two 60-something men facing the twilight of their years. They discuss everything from retirement to sex to a bitter divorce and the death of a spouse. It's fairly weighty stuff that might not resonate with -- or, frankly, be of interest to -- younger teens. There's a fair amount of swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," and more. One character is sexist and doesn't hesitate to comment on women's clothing, body parts, etc. There's also a fair bit of drinking (once to the point of passing out) and some drug use (marijuana).
