By Steve Kuehl VINE VOICE on June 20, 2009
Format: DVD
This was being advertised heavily and trailered as an outrageous comedy, which admittedly the first act has a few great lines and moments, but it quickly devolves into a serous take on alcoholism and life changes.

The lead womanizing, alcoholic, ranting character was played well by Michael Leydon Campbell, and from what I have seen before this is his breakout role. He manages to fit five different personalities into this story and has all of the screen time, even though he is not given listing on the front cover. The supporting cast has a slew of recognizable faces, including Stephen Root, Grace Zabriskie (much better seen in the Big Love series), Eddie Jemsion (Ocean's trilogy) and Rachael Leigh Cook as the absent love interest.

The segmented story follows him as he devolves into an alcoholic mess, all while losing his job, "friends", motivation and easy one night stands from his main bar. Once the second and third acts materialize the few laughs go away, and a serious recovery tone takes over. The only other funny line later in the movie is from Grace's character with that "I am an island in the middle of Crazy River".

The movie drags in quite a few areas, Campbell's rants get irritating, but his life lessons learned make for a somewhat redeeming quality as far as a message film goes.

Aside from a couple plant reviews here, cover art that has nothing to do with the film (the large picture on the back never happens, planted quotes including..."RLC's best since She's All That" - hardly, "RLC shines as the heroine.." - not even close, she trips into the last scene to try and redeem the absent love story), no special features and average picture and sound, makes this an overall non-recommendation. But maybe some of the spot supporting performances will make this a decent rental for their fans.

I don't know how 5 of 7 people rated this movie 5 stars. It was painful to watch. It is tough to watch a movie when almost every major character is not likeable. There isn't anyone to cheer for in this movie. The main character is a jerk when he is drunk, and he isn't much better when he cleans himself up. The mother is a jerk, the brother is a dweeb and a closet jerk. The only character that is semi likeable is played by Rachael Leigh Cook. But her major flaw is that she actually likes the main character.

It goes no where and it was a waste of 2 hours. How Amazon has this rated at 4.5 stars, but IMDB has it at 5.1 out of 10 and Rotten Tomatoes has it at 1 star is a mystery. Either friends of the people who made the movie planted bogus reviews or amazon is filtering out bad reviews since it is an Amazon Prime movie. The movie stinks, but something about these positive reviews stinks as well.

Kind of depressing. Makes you want to smack someone! By the time it ends, you still have not really got a plot going,or s feel for it. Just goes nowhere.

My title says it all. I thought the movie blended Bob's alcoholic life with comedy perfectly. It was a sexy, witty film. That's it.

If you are lucky enough to live within driving distance of one of the major cities (New York, LA, Portland, Chicago, Dallas) that are lucky enough to be part of the limited theatrical release of this film, GO SEE IT. If you are not so lucky, pre-order it here from Amazon or queue it on your NetFlix. You won't be disappointed. This is the kind of film that filmmaking should be about. There are no snakes on a plane or improbable romances set aboard sinking historical vessels, but there are characters and situations that you will recognize. For me, that's good writing: when there is something in a character that I personally respond to - I have felt "that way," "been there, done that," etc. This film is chock-full of those relatable moments, and they come, unexpectedly at times, from every single character. The title character, Bob Funk (Michael Leydon Campbell, reprising his stage role), is pretty unlikeable from the get-go - he's an angry functional drunk, a masher (for you young folk: he hits on pretty females, especially in his favorite bar from whence he acquires his one-night stands), a condescending screw-up at work (the family owned Funk Foam and Futon; wherein his arrogance, demise, humiliation, and recovery are primarily set). We know immediately that the only way this man stays employed is because his mother, superbly played by Grace Zabriske, owns the company. Without giving away the story, I can tell you that Bob gets fired by his own mother - a tag line that is funny by itself - and spends the rest of the film truly hitting bottom and crawling back upward into life. The rest of the characters act as supports, catalysts, and sounding boards for Bob's journey (as does all of the technical stuff that goes into filmmaking: sets, sound, music, cinematography, costumes - all are excellent).Read more ›
