This is the type of film that creeps up on you, and you find yourself smiling at the end. David Arnott is a steriotypical unattractive, intellectual geek...Jeri Ryan is the attractive woman with issues, and David Montgomery Jr. is the uneducated but handsome hiker...all survivors of a mysterious, unexplained plague that has wiped out human kind, who meet up at various stages. Arnott is the narrator of this tale, as he video tapes his exploits and his personal accounts for any other survivors.
It's Arnott's performance that provides the tempo for this tale. He plays on his character's faults, showing how a man might feel to have the world dumped in his lap, and become more and more annoyed when things don't work out exactly as he perceives they should....as in his relationship with Ryan. The man now has his fantasy woman, but dealing with her individual emotions as a real human being is another story. And then of course being confronted when a third, better looking male survivor unexpectantly shows up.
Jeri Ryan (who does not appear in the form fitting jump suit on the VHS cover) gives a deft performance as a woman with relationship issues (as she warns future generations in her video legacy against "...women like me.")who wants to do the right thing, but just can't get past her obvious distaste for Arnott's physical and emotional being. Ryan once again shows that her acting skills are not soley based on her wearing tight clothes, and you might be surprised by some of her raw, emotional outbursts.
And although Montgomery's character doesn't have much to do, he nails his part as a fun loving guy who accepts the situation and let's nature take it course...as long as that course includes free drugs and a route into Ryan's pants.

If you are a Jeri Ryan fan, this is a great opportunity to see

her demonstrate her versatility as an actress in a lead role.

The storyline recalls Jean-Paul Sartre's "Huis Clos", but here

developed as a comedy.

It is a very good film, and when you listen to the commentary

by Harry Ralston, Jeri Ryan, Dave Arnott and Dan Montgomery

(in the bonus material), brace yourself for a lot more fun!

"Two thumbs up!"

It's not the best "last man" type genre but it has some really funny parts. The sad thing is the guy doesn't know what he has until...won't spoil it for you. Personally I don't know why they never moved into a hotel and got rid of the bodies. Jeri Ryan was a surprise because I'd only really seen her in Voyager. She can really act and never once did I think of her as Seven of Nine--which is saying something when she looks that good! All the acting is great and the twists at the end, although not surprising, are wonderful to watch. I'd recommend it and not recommend "The New Guy" DVD.

Hypothetical situations abound, one-time director Harry Ralston gives us the ultimate post-apocalyptic glimpse with the world dead, left in the streets, in the stores, and throughout the landscape, sans in the middle of a forgotten desert. One lone survivor, attempting to rekindle his sanity, takes food from the city to his bungalow in this desert. All alone, he hopes for more, but with nobody around, he is left with white underwear, and a passion for a local Indian tribe - until the discovery of a camera which opens up new doors and breaks the barriers of human co-existence. Alan, a man of the book, is left on Earth after an unknown disaster. Thinking he is alone, he begins living life his way - until, Jeri Ryan, appears (like she would in any dream) out of the woods, disheveled, and unhappy to find the final man alive to be ... well ... like Alan. Anyway, they try to co-exist, fail, get drunk, and before creating the ultimate dystopia, they run into Redneck Raphael (played by newcomer - Dan Montgomery Jr). Bonds are torn, confusion sets in, a couple becomes a third wheel, and the battle between physically inept nerd vs. brainless jock. Even with nobody left on the planet, it becomes a truth that even the darkest of human nature will arise.

Using a variable film technique, Ralston gives us a mediocre story based loosely on another film entitled "The Quiet Earth" (which I will be viewing next) oddly which he never gives any credit towards. With a borrowed story, I guess he does a decent job of reinterpreting it. His punch seems to be lacking at the beginning while Ralston tries to find his stride, borrowing yet again from other film director's techniques to attempt to find his own. He opens the film interestingly enough, but fails to answer any direct answers.

The last survivor of the apocalypse is an unathletic and somewhat unattractive older grad student in Anthropology. This isn't a last man on earth movie as much as it is an exploration of male/female relationship stuff. I normally don't go for that, but I thought it was pretty funny and well done.

I like how the hero of the story lacks the ability to really connect with Jeri Ryan. I can relate. When a woman is crying/ emotional/ vulnerable all I can think of is Glen Quagmire's line from Family Guy.. I probably shouldn't write the line-- it had to do with his sack. I really like how Jeri Ryan looks at him. Her expression reminds me of the hopeless/trapped look Cheryl Hines always had in Curb Your Enthusiasm. She really is a surprisingly good actress.

You have to watch this as a comedy/ satire because the characters' personalities are intentionally exaggerated. I watched a little past the introduction of the dumb and good looking backpacker and realized I wasn't in the mood for this kind of film. I'll probably never be in the right mood. I loved Jeri Ryan's response to the 'repopulate the earth' argument. People who are far less emotionally immature than myself will probably like it.
