Product Description

Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry guides us through the cultural and emotional landscape of what it is to be a Guy. From the Dawn of Guys straight through to modern life, we'll learn about the common everyday things that have tormented Guys forever: Sports Concerns, Hardware Concerns, Public Restroom Concerns, and more. We'll learn why Guys try so hard to get the sex thing right, and why they go so crazy at mid-life - which might or might not have to do with the sex thing.

Written and directed by Jeff Arch (Sleepless in Seattle), G2G combines interviews with everyday contemporary women (lots of them), a number of Scientific and Medical Experts (John Cleese), gripping vignettes featuring Hall of Fame Quarterback Dan Marino (Dan Marino), Steve the Ultimate Handyman (Carlos Ponce), as well as real life faked scenes with couples Roger and Elaine (Lochlyn Munro, Christina Moore), and Gene and Kelly (Khalil Kain, Megan Ward).

Whether you are a guy or you know someone who is, this is the movie for you!

Humor columnist Dave Barry hosts this cinematic investigation, based on his popular book, into the whats, whys, and wherefores of being a guy. Not a man; a guy, a distinct subspecies that Barry is careful to distinguish. Interviews with women reveal that guys rate only slightly higher than tapeworms; conversations with assorted experts (all played by Monty Python's John Cleese, A Fish Called Wanda) explore the petty, compulsive side of guy-ness; and dramatic re-enactments capture the many ways in which guys and the women in their lives speak almost entirely different languages. Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys occasionally bogs down in standard sitcom-style gags, but more often Barry's warm, middle-of-the-road humor hits its target (or, just as often, finds a sneaky way of moving the target to where the joke landed). Barry's genial, deadpan sincerity keeps the movie buoyant as it mocks sports, dating, competition, laundry, mid-life crises, and bathroom etiquette. Any fan of Barry's will find much to laugh at here, and newcomers will be drawn into the writer's comic world. Also featuring football player Dan Marino as a testimonial witness for guys everywhere. --Bret Fetzer
