Friendless Peter Klaven goes on a series of man-dates to find a Best Man for his wedding. But when his insta-bond with his new B.F.F. puts a strain on his relationship with his fiancée, can the trio learn to live happily ever after?
John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Life has its downs for James, living with his mom in Chicago at 39, an aging performer at Second City, eating and weighing too much. A woman he's been dating drops him, as does his agent, her brother. James turns down roles in local TV, roles that make him sad. Someone's remaking his favorite movie, "Marty," a role he'd love, but he doesn't even get an audition. He has a minor meltdown when talking at a grade school career day. Things look up when he meets the quirky Beth at an ice cream shop. Can James make a career for himself, move out from mom's, and find someone to eat cheese with? Or is he destined to watch Jackie Gleason and be Marty for the rest of his life? Written by
If you like "Curb..." you will like the main character, as they are so similar to the "Curb.." formula. I should watch the entire thing, I guess, before making comment. To me it's a one-trick pony film, and the trick is insignificant, if I see it at all. "Chubby-chaser" jokes are typical of this low-rent, low-interest genre. Perhaps this is meant to have all sorts of important underlying comments about weight, rejection etc, but there is nothing subtle or watchable about it to my eyes. Sarah Silverman is OK, for the time I saw her in the movie at least, but nothing special. That rally sum up this film, for me, in that it is Nothing Special, just typical.
