Editorial Reviews

Award-winning writer-director-actor Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan, She s The One with Jennifer Aniston) returns with Nice Guy Johnny, his most romantic comedy in years. Johnny (Matt Bush of Adventureland) is engaged to a girl who demands he drop his dream gig as a sports radio deejay and work for her dad in the cardboard box industry. But the bed-hopping, fun-loving Uncle Terry (Burns) has different plans and soon whisks away Johnny to the Hamptons for a lost weekend where his nephew can find some fun. Beautiful tennis pro Brooke (Kerry Bishe, giving what the Hollywood Reporter calls a winning performance ) soon tempts Johnny to serve up a little pleasure and figure out exactly what being a nice guy really means. Nice Guy Johnny shows Burns delivering another gem in the tradition of his heroes Woody Allen and Francois Truffaut.

I really enjoyed this movie. I like pretty much anything with Ed Burns, but with that said what I enjoyed most was the message in this movie....we should all do a little more of what makes us happy not what everyone else expects us to do! Enjoy yourself while you can and do what you love.
Good movie, good acting, Ed Burns please make some more movies!

NICE GUY JOHNNY is another offbeat, casual story written and directed by the inimitable Edward Burns. It boasts a good story, some very fine actors, and carries a message that we all too often forget. This is that polished little gem of a film that surprises the viewer with its quiet manner and message.

Johnny Rizzo (Matt Bush, a VERY promising your actor) spends his nights as a radio sports talk show host, a career he loves but one that his fiancée Claire (Anna Wood) feels is not a money maker and has made Johnny promise that if by age 25 he does not make at least $50,000. a year, he must go to work in a cardboard factory. That time has come and Johnny reluctantly prepares for his interview for the 'new job'. Johnny is nice, loves, Claire, but is frustrated at the promise he's made. Enter Johnny's philandering Uncle Terry (Ed Burns) who wants Johnny to stay with his dream of being a radio host and in order to try to dissuade the ardently faithful Johnny, Uncle Terry invites him for a weekend at the Hamptons. There Terry, unknown to Johnny, uses the home of one of his married 'regulars' and encourages Johnny to have a last fling before his upcoming marriage and before he goes for an interview for the cardboard job. Johnny is nice and respectful and will not jeopardize his relationship with Claire. But he meets a tennis pro Brooke (Kerry Bishé) and soon finds himself in an innocent but apparently compromising position with Brooke: Brooke respects Johnny's engagement status but finds him different and more real and honest than most men and tries her best to win him over. But Johnny rides the waves of discontent his night away form Claire cause, and at Terry's insistence and Brooke's influence makes a decision that changes his life.

Anything Edward Burns, I love automatically...It's a good movie about a guy that can't say YES to his life. Johnny is a nice guy, so nice, you want his sleazy, sccammer uncle to influence him every step of the way.

Nice Guy Johnny is a realistic film that has wonderful characters played by a stellar, mostly unknown, cast. Edward Burns returned to his roots with this film, made for a scant $25,000 with a 3-man crew. Burns plays the antagonist Uncle Terry who harangues the main character about his impending marriage. He gives the nephew some bad advice, crudely stated. But his underlying message to the kid is a wise one.

This is a sweet and heartfelt movie. It is nicely and simply and clearly made, no frills. I liked the story, the actors, the scenery, the pacing.
I am a "huge" Ed Burns fan for years now. I watch his movies over and over and over. He's an expert at making it look so simple and in doing so we feel invited into a "better world".

This is a well-made movie with a good premise. A fun romantic comedy. Inspired me with my own filmmaking and acting background. It was great how it was made in limited number of locations without getting boring. This for sure influences me to get my movies made!

Although the girlfriend is way too nasty, leaving the door wide open for nice guy Johnny, I still loved this movie. The characters are great except for the snobby, unlikable fiance. If she had been one bit likable, this would have been even better. Why did Johnny like her in the first place is beyond me. The tennis player from LMU is gorgeous and a keeper!

Entertaining movie, but don't take it at face value. What we have here is a pretty accurate portrayal of a mealy-mouthed, easily influenced guy who lives in a fantasy world, and his homewrecking, enabler, beach bunny.

It's obvious that Johnny and Brooke are not going to stay together - they'll soon get bored and run off again with other people. It's also obvious that Johnny is on his way to becoming an exact clone of his Uncle Terry down the road. I got the feeling that the filmmaker (Edward Burns) was slyly trying to make that point between the lines.

The only character I *liked* was the "evil" fiancee (honestly, most single guys would be thrilled to find someone like her) who gets stabbed in the back by the "hero" couple.
