Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
A coming-of-age story gets a few new wrinkles in this offbeat comedy directed by Miguel Arteta Star Maps and written by Mike White. White plays the lead, Buck, a 20-something misfit who never managed to leave the nest. When his mother dies, Buck moves to L.A. to pursue a relationship with his long-lost best friend from childhood, Chuck American Pie co-producer Chris Weitz. At times the story is pleasantly quirky, finding plenty of humor in the lollipop-sucking demeanor of someone who simply never grew up. But there's an edge here, too: Buck does more than just pursue Chuck, he stalks him. And the fairy-tale childhood memories they share seem to gloss over aspects of their relationship that were more profound. White steals the show here, as his facial expressions alone conjure up all the joys, fears, and agonies of childhood. Weitz's Chuck makes a fascinating foil for the child-man, as he goes from being merely embarrassed by Buck to being completely unnerved by him. In the end, Chuck & Buck is about a search for emotional closure, and while the catharsis it ultimately provides for these two friends may be unusual, it is also unexpectedly uplifting.

    Amazing

    I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. At first one sees Buck as a hopeless misfit, but as it goes on it becomes apparent that he is actually an incredibly strong character. If you have ever felt like you were chasing something important and you were ''crazy'' to do it, this powerful movie is for you.
