A divorced, alcoholic salesman attempts to pull his life together in time to get his old job back and avoid becoming the laughing stock of the company in this midlife crisis comedy starring Michael Leydon Campbell, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Amy Ryan. As if a failing marriage and a serious bout with the bottle aren't troublesome enough, socially challenged salesman Bob Funk (Leydon Campbell) realizes that his life has really hit the skids when he's fired by his own mother (Grace Zabriskie).

Audience Reviews for Bob Funk
You can't help but feel sorry for poor Bob. I had hope that in the end he would straighten himself out and I am so glad that he did. Rachel Leigh Cook was adorable as the accident prone office girl.
