Original story and vision--but it's designed to be irritating (and at that it succeeds)
21 May 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

"Chuck & Buck" is something a little different, and that's always a plus, but from the overly-giddy music to the brackish photography--with the camera always pulled in too close to the actors' faces--it's rather an obnoxious combination of sentiment and off-putting drama (it seems designed to be these things intentionally). Childhood friends are reunited years later at a funeral, but while Charlie is now a corporate businessman in Los Angeles, Buck is a lollipop-sucking, simple-minded child in a man's body (with homosexual leanings). The leading actors (Chris Weitz, a Christopher Reeve lookalike, as Charlie and Mike White in the more showy role of Buck) are both good, yet the structure of this story (man innocently stalking man) makes one uncomfortable. There are funny scenes and quirky details in Mike White's screenplay (such as the way strangers initially respond positively to Buck), but the overall effect is queasy. ** from ****
