Did You Know?

In the beginning of the movie Tommy and Beth are talking about both being left handed yet in real life Alexis Bledel is right handed - not a "lefty".See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Beth and Tommy are both supposed to be left-handed. However, Tommy wears his watch on his left wrist, was throwing darts with his right hand, and drinks with his right hand. Beth dials her phone with her right hand and at work was scraping the rock with the tool in her right hand.See more »

The Good Guy & The Bad Guy, 12 September 2010
Author: Chrysanthepop from Fraggle Rock

Julio DePietro's 'The Good Guy' tries to combine the romantic genre and buddy flick genre. It does use a lot of clichés. The story is quite predictable in the first hour and then there are some interesting subtle twists that unfold well during the final half hour. I liked how the director mislead the viewer into thinking one thing while they turned out to be something else. I felt the ending was a copout and a little too convenient as I would have preferred something darker.

While the characters are well developed, they are clichéd, especially the Daniel character who happens to be the ideal guy (his favourite book is 'Pride and Prejudice', he was in the army but he is gentle, soft-spoken, shy and kind of a pushover etc). The luminous Alexis Bledel is terrific in a role she's familiar with. Although I would like to see her play different characters in her forthcoming movies. Scott Porter is average and Bryan Greenburg is adequate. Anna Chlumsky is wasted.

'The Good Guy' could have benefited more had the clichés been reduced and the story been more layered, complex and dark. It isn't your average date movie as it would appear to be but it's better than that.
