Editorial Reviews

When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (TYLER LABINE), unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride Kristin (JESS WEIXLER) and groom Scott (JUSTIN LONG) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpy's body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds' path leads them to a fifteen-year-old girl in a small, northern Minnesota town - all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.

When I first took a look at the DVD cover picture of this movie and a few quotes on it, I just assumed this was a comedy or even a romantic comedy type when I rented it. It is not. It is a very heartfelt and poignant story of how dissimilar lives collide on several levels and then all work their way together. Only, not right away. Written and directed by Ted Koland, this entire story really isn't completely understood until more toward the end. And for myself, it is an emotional film at times, with the ending being even more so which was worth the view.

The movie begins with the wedding reception of Kristin (Jessica Weixler) and Scott (Justin Long). Scott's Best Man and friend that he really does not see often enough, Lumpy (Tyler Labine), gets way overboard with his drinking. Before he is convinced that he needs to go to his room and sleep this off, he demands that Scott takes an envelope of cash forgetting to purchase a wedding gift. While in his room, he is acting up, jumping on the bed in a drunken state, falling and hitting his head dangerously hard. He then unfortunately locks himself out of the building and collapses out on the hotel grounds ... Dead. This, of course, throws the newly married couple into a panic over the death of a friend and the definite change of Honeymoon plans. They must use that Honeymoon money to ship the body back to Minneapolis, Minnesota for his funeral and subsequent burial. To say the least, the across the country ride there is tense and unhappy as they are supposed to be under palm trees and sipping drinks wearing Caftans. Now they are driving to northern Minnesota to tell his young friend, Ramsey, what they have discovered about his death and consequent upcoming funeral.

Highly recommended. Great cast, very kind storyline. Dark, sad, yet happily ever after. You wont be disappointed for getting to know Lumpy. The cast did an amazing job. Am surprised this movie didn't get more attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film and fantastic look at MPLS October 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Ok, I'm biased because I know the writer/director and I'm from Minneapolis but this is a great film and a great story. If you live in MPLS or are from here this is a great film. We've all gone to Lutsen for a weekend, spent hours in Uptown and Downtown Minneapolis so it's fun to see the shots around the city. But more importantly the story is just fantastic. It reminds us that little things can have a huge impact on someone's life. Nice job Ted!

"It was fun, it was always fun with Lumpy. He was the first real friend I ever had." Lumpy (Labine) is Scott's (Long) best friend and best man at his wedding. When he gets a little out of control Scott tells him to go sleep it off so he doesn't ruin the wedding. The next day everyone is shocked at Lumpy's death and now Scott and his new wife are arranging his funeral instead of honeymooning. When they begin to tell Lumpy's friends about what happened they discover a man they never knew. This is one of the biggest surprises I have ever found in terms of movies. I expected this to be funny for two reasons...Justin Long and Tyler Labine. Those guys are so funny without trying to be that I was looking forward to laughing many times even with the subject matter. What I found out was that not only was I wrong about laughing the entire time but I cried at the end. Labine was a great choice because he is so likable and even though he is only in the movie off and on his presence is felt and that impacts everything. I can not say enough about this movie and I want everyone I know to watch it. It does have moments where I did laugh, it's not morbid even though the plot revolves around death, and the most important thing this movie has is heart without coming off as unbelievably cheesy. This is a near perfect movie and I can't recommend this enough. I loved it. I give this an A+.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lumpy, We Hardly Knew You March 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This may be one of the strangest films I have ever seen. It seems it might make a Lifetime television film, but I am not sure that would work out either.

The film starts out at a wedding reception in Phoenix, Arizona. All or most of the guests and the wedding party are from Minneapolis. It seems the bride wanted her wedding in a warm part of the country. Justin Long plays the groom, Scott, one of the few actors I recognized. Jess Weixler plays the bride, Kristin. Early on we find out that Kristin is hooked on Xanax, and Scott cannot afford the wedding nor the honeymoon. 'Lumpy', the best man loaned Scott the money for the wedding et al. After a hairy wedding reception where Lumpy drank everything in sight, made a mess of everything in sight, he is found dead in a field of cacti. Scott and Kristin find they must bury Lumpy, not honeymoon and off they go. The rest of the film is quite an interesting look at the world of Minnesota. The most interesting bit of this film is the young girl, Ramsey, played by Addison Timlin, who was a good friend to Lumpy. She is the focus of the film, around which everything else revolves.

The other very strange part of this film is the bride's mother. I kept looking at this woman wondering how I knew her. It finally dawned on me this was Shelley Long of the Boston Bar fame 'where everybody knows your name.' She has changed, weight gain, lined face, weird spotted glasses,but the voice rang true. The mother is a busybody always saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. However, she added some spice to a pretty bland film. Not really sure what the message is from this film, it may be you never really know.

Recommended Warily. prisrob 03-10-14
