Storyline

"After moving to a small, rural town, uptight Joel Bixby (Tony Award-nominee John Cariani, Showtime, Kissing Jessica Stein), is invited by an agreeable new acquaintance to join a group of townsmen who meet in a ramshackle room at the edge of town. Normally a loner, Joel finds himself enamored by boisterous, fast food connoisseur Leo Applegate (Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Edward Asner, Up, Elf, TV's Lou Grant and The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and reluctantly agrees to go. Unknowingly the "replacement" for a beloved member who recently passed away, Joel meets the group's other surviving members and is swept up in their strange lives, but struggles with their secretive purpose for gathering ... until he realizes each of them is as lost as himself.

A quirky warm story that draws you in as you watch it
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I, like the main character, initially kept wondering why he was there. And as the movie progressed I, like the main character, wondered less and less about that and more and more about the characters and what was going on with them. I wouldn't necessarily call this a 'guys' movie, because I think a similar scenario could happen with women. But guys are more loathe to discuss the things, the inner fears and loneliness and insecurities that we all do have. It is not a very complicated story. In fact, there is no plot to speak of. But it is a warm and comforting little tale that shows the best qualities of friendship- the giving and receiving of empathy and understanding- and the need we all have for that. This is not a movie full of the touchy-feely-express-yourself-explore your-inner-self type moments guys hate, but there are honest moments of emotion and as an insular person I found myself caring about these characters, and wondering why I didn't have friends like this in my life.
