Don't see it if you are in a funk, its depressing after a funny start; would make a useful film to show recovering addicts
7 March 2017 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Bob Funk (Michael Leydon Campbell) doesn't realize how messed up he is. After a acrimonious divorce, Bob has started drinking too much, coming in late and dropping his own status as a top salesman. Thank goodness he works for his mother's lucrative Foam and Futon mattress store, because she would never fire him, right? After his mama hires another top saleslady, klutzy Ms. Thorne (Rachael Leigh Cook) she does warn Bob that even as her son, he can't continue as he is. Yet, Bob doesn't truly reform and only holds onto a job because his brother Ron works for the same company. First, Bob is demoted to under salesman and must report to Ms. Thorne. Eventually, he is told he must go to counseling, which he doesn't take seriously at first. Finally, after another round of binge drinking, Bob is made the sub- custodian of the place. This indeed causes him to sober up and go to Alcoholics Anon. Yet, now he's seems bitter, with none of his former sparkle. Also, Bobby may indeed have a crush on Ms. Thorne, who has never shown an interest in him personally. Will Bob get out of his funk? This alternately funny then depressing film has its moments of humor. Bob is a screw-up from the start, which makes for some comedic scenes at the bar he frequents and at work. Therefore, the first half is light-hearted. as Bob is mirthful while causing his mother extreme hassles. But, once the movie takes a turn to Bob's recovery from alcoholism, it becomes very sober indeed, pun intended. Campbell is quite good as the lead while Cook is always beautiful, funny and welcome. The rest of the cast, the sets, the costumes and the direction are quite fine as well. Are you a recovering addict or close to someone who is? You will benefit from a showing of Bob Funk but its not going to land you on cloud nine.
