Storyline

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 Anonymous

must see Full Grown Men
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to see 2 showing of FGM during Tribeca - i loved it even more the second time. The film has achieved a really great balance of comedy and poignancy. The comedy ranges from great, sarcastic adult wit to brazen, childish slapstick which makes for not only great laugh out loud moments but speaks to the true nature of being grown-up. It reminds us that adults have both kinds of humor inside, and too often we have to suppress our childish inclinations. But for me, the thoughtfulness of the film got me in the gut. There are moments that are just truly beautiful, both thematically and cinematically - yet you never feel like the touching moments are forced. This film manages to ring true with its story while being artfully entertaining.
