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

unique, thought-provoking, deep
26 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

try this indie for a unique, beautifully-shot, thought-provoking meditation on what it means to really, truly grow up . . . the protagonist is locked in a struggle between his carefree youth and being a responsible husband and father. his childhood foil has moved on and become an award-winning teacher who appears to be content with adulthood. follow their road trip of discovery as they each learn a little bit about the transition from being a kid to being a fully realized adult. great star turns by alan cumming and amy sedaris, as well as a cameo by Debbie Harry. also, the toy merchant whose name i forget nearly steals the show and expertly fills in the film's emotional core.
