What happens when you stuff a film to the gills with recognizable character actors and forget about the script entirely...you get THE DEFINITE MAYBE. If you look at the box it's all about the film makers and nothing about the story, that's because there isn't one. Bob Balaban does a great job, as he always does, but everything else is completely forgettable. This is a great example of why people don't like independent film. Watch beware!
Manhattan businessman Josh Lucas (as Eric Traber) gets fired from his
job, then heads out to the Hamptons with best friend Jeffrey Buehl (as
Ziggy Sinclair). There, Mr. Lucas has an affair with the wife of boss
Bob Balaban (as Wolfe Rollins). Mr. Balaban wants to divorce
well-shaped Claudia Rocafort (as Sasha), and give her the Bridgehampton
house Mr. Buehl wet the bed in, and is interested in purchasing with
Lucas' help. By the end of the film, these four characters take center
stage in an attempted murder. The unexpected ending, along with the
characters, daffodils, and genuine landscape are okay - but, the movie
is simply dull.
**** The Definite Maybe (1997) Sam Sokolow, Rob Rollins Lobl ~ Josh Lucas, Jeffrey Buehl, Claudia Rocafort, Bob Balaban
This is one of those cases. Clearly made by beginning film makers, THE DEFINITE MAYBE is a failed attempt at comedy and film making in general. Nary a laugh in the entire film, and barely a single recognizable character. Ineptly shot, poorly acted, and far too long, this is not a good way to spend an evening..
