Movie Info

Former music-video director Tamra Davis (Guncrazy) created strong characters in this bank-robbery tale, a crime/comedy/drama somewhat reminiscent of the anti-establishment attitudes seen in early '70s films. After three years in a California prison, Jesse (Luke Wilson) is ready to marry his girlfriend Hope (Drew Barrymore) in the town of Independence (the original working title of this film). Joining Jesse is a odd assortment -- the buzzcut ex-Green-Beret Buzz (Dean Cain); ex-lawyer Sol

The ending is a little too neat and tidy, but as far as straight-to-video talk-fests go, Best Men's worth a look.

Fairly witless romantic heist comedy combo.

Audience Reviews for Best Men

As if Drew Barrymore's wedding day weren't stressful enough, bride-to-be Luke Wilson must contend with her intnded being an ex-con who can't pass up the opportunity to rob a bank. Unbeknownst to Hope and his friends, Sean Patrick Flanery is "Hamlet", a Robin Hood-like robber who picks the day of his wedding for his latest heist. Quirky character comedy succeeds, thanks to a winning cast, spirited direction and a script that never plays dumb.
