Quotes

Rick Murphy: Did I ever tell ya' about the law of averages? The law of averages is... at any given moment there's some horrible shit happening to someone in the world, right now. At the same time, there's some really great shit happening to someone else. The law of averages is... most guys are like you and me... nothing really great ever happens to us, but the good thing is nothing really horrible happens either.

The Most Fun You Can Have Watching a Movie
19 October 2004 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

This movie is so much fun to watch. I find myself wanting to watch again and again for the laughs and the tugs on my heart strings.

Eric Fleming has done a beautiful job making an action adventure comedy pay off big time in terms of characterization. The Almost Guys is a cool, absolute gem of genres that bounces from the old amusing 'road movies' to action and surprising, touching drama. Veteran Robert Culp is delicious in this sleeper full of talented and versatile newcomers. One reason this refreshing movie sparkles is Pietro Arpesella. His knuckle ball portrayal of the disenfranchised and disillusioned Massimo 2 is reminiscent of Pacino's 'fed up' Sonny Wortzik in Dog Day Afternoon and that just adds to the movie's strengths. For anyone who always wants a genuine plot in a movie, you've got one here and it makes being entertained great fun. The Almost Guys is super screen chemistry all the way through. If you like lots of different funny but not cheesy lines see this film, then see it again.
