The Bug Man is about how an exterminator tries to connect with his clients and the consequences of these connections. Felix is a mild-mannered exterminator. At work, he moves from house to house, as invisible to his clients as the insects they pay him to spray. At home, Felix and his wife, Clarisse, dream of having a child to fill the silence of their evenings. Felix's most interesting client is a widowed beauty queen who spends her days alone in her large, dark house. When Felix suggests she go out with another one of his clients, a handsome, recently divorced attorney, he seems to have lifted her spirits. But when the relationship takes an unexpected turn, Felix is faced with a choice that could either ruin his career or make his dreams come true. Written by Anonymous

The location of lawyer David McCall's (Latimer, Michael) house was also featured in 'Kill Bill (2003)' as the home of Vernita Green (aka Copperhead). In fact, the safety padding for the stunts in Tarantino's film was still underneath the carpet. See more »

I loved this beautiful, heartwarming film.
13 January 2004 | by (Pasadena, California) – See all my reviews

This was a very touching story of the grace and gifts in life, and the human passions that propel it to fruition. Not only the story, portrayed by real, well written characters, but the look of the film was beautiful. The opening was my favorite, It just sets the pace for the entire film. I loved being a part of it.
