It's early July in Philadelphia. Childhood trauma has its hold on Harris Malden: he has no facial hair, so to compensate, he draws a mustache or beard on his face every morning, and he won't leave his neighborhood. His younger brother, Melvin, his best friend Paul, who lives next door, Paul's grandmother, and the entire neighborhood play along. But at the party for his 25th birthday, Paul's new girlfriend Susan points out to Harris that his mustache is a fake. This causes a crisis in Harris and threatens the friendship with Paul. Meanwhile, Melvin is trying to break into TV commercials. Hair, honesty, growing up, and moving on challenge each character and each relationship. Written by <>

Fantastic! See this movie!
8 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly feel sorry for those who haven't seen this movie yet. Those who haven't experienced the rebirth of cinema in this off the wall but heart warming comedy. Most people have a mindset that movies without notable actors won't be good. These actors in this lovely film all complemented each other perfectly enabling you to overlook the names of the characters and just sit back and enjoy the ride. All the jokes in this film are dead-on which causes its audience to break out in uncontrollable laughter. A lot of us movie goers are familiar with every movie having the relatively same soundtrack so films don't really stand out as much. The compositions in this movie are so genuine and unique that they'll actually make you take appreciation in accordion music, which until viewing this movie, I felt was ungodly annoying and terrible. As for cinematography, as an audience, you really felt like you were there in the film at all times. Just standing behind are guard rail getting the full view of what's going on. If you haven't seen this movie, I strongly recommend seeing it now, before it becomes a success in the near future. That way you can brag to your friends that you saw it first.
