Full Grown Men

26 June 2008 2:03 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The recent documentary Surfwise considers how children raised as ascetics grow up and struggle to make their way in a materialistic society. David Munro's debut feature, Full Grown Men, comes at the problem from the opposite direction. Matt McGrath plays a middle-aged family man and former class clown who still clings to the instant-gratification culture he grew up with: a world of action figures, kung-fu movies, sugar cereals, and amusement parks. Now 35 and having trouble dealing with his responsibilities as a husband and father, McGrath packs a bunch of his vintage toys in a suitcase and travels across Florida, planning to sell his collection, reconnect with his boyhood best friend Judah Friedlander, and go to "Diggityland." Not on his itinerary? Growing the hell up. Full Grown Men is intended as a commentary on a phenomenon that cartoonist Bill Griffith once dubbed "kidults": adults who dress, behave, and entertain. »

By Neil Pedley

As the temperature rises, romance blooms amongst the geriatric set, "Mary Poppins" goes Bollywood, and parents will get their first chance to lay eyes on that which will likely have them driving to Toys "R" Us all summer long.

"Elsa and Fred"

Seeing anyone under 30 fall in love on screen is elusive these days, and so director Marcos Carnevale's gentle and endearing tale of romance between a couple with a real-life combined age of 176 is quite the breath of fresh air. In a role that nabbed several awards in his native Spain, Manuel Alexandre stars as Fred, an embittered widower whose chance encounter with Elsa (China Zorilla), a mischievous Fellini fanatic, leads the pair to Italy to fulfill her dream of reenacting the famous Trevi Fountain scene from Fellini's "La Dolce Vita." In Spanish with subtitles.

Opens in limited release.

"Finding Amanda"
