A strangely, short-lived Scottish sitcom chronicling the eccentric passengers and crew of a fictional small airline operating out of Prestwick Airport. Notable for some very surreal comedy and the all singing, all dancing titles.

Alby Cutrera yearns for a time when life was carefree and action figures were twelve inches tall. When his wife insults him for being more of a playmate than a father to his young son, Alby heads for safety and tracks down his boyhood pal Elias whose memory of their younger days is considerably less rosy. They set out on a road trip to Diggityland, their favorite place as kids, but simpler times turn complicated as the two friends confront the land mines of their past. Journeying through the Oz of Central Florida, they encounter a cast of wounded roadside romantics - a disgruntled ex-theme park employee, a horny bartending clown, and a delusional mermaid - each one shedding light on the perils of not letting go. Full Grown Men is the bittersweet tale of a man who learns the hard way that the best years of his life may still lie ahead of him. Written by

Thoughtful, intelligent comedy; a real sleeper. considering the offal often found in the indie industry (read that, horror), this was a refreshing find. having indulged in the occasional indie experience, I'm used to reacting in one, or more, of several ways. Often, dumbfounded the movie ever got made. Surprised they found such bad actors when there are so many out of work exceptional ones. Wondering what I was doing there, when I could be, oh I don't know, pulling my teeth out with bolt cutters! Looking around to see if anyone noticed my head snapping backwards and forwards, with the following snort as I came awake. Or, composing my own obituary. Thankfully, none of the above from viewing "Full Grown Men"! Hope it finds distribution and an audience!
