A showcase for writer/director Craig Carlisle, Bob Funk is a broad, functional contrivance that has its jaunty moments, but doesn't work as a whole.

Playing the misogynistic, bar-hopping, impulsive, titular irritant, Campbell's thespy histrionics come off as truly labored.

Much like its titular character, the film itself has some serious growing up to do and needs a strong dose of warmth and charisma.

The dry, witty first half is far more interesting, even if it's ultimately more amusing than funny.

Carlisle's film is designed with a certain suburban flatness that at times perfectly reflects Bob's inner deadness, though not his periodic spurts of sarcastic rage.

Looks like a comedy, acts like a comedy and sounds like a comedy, but it isn't funny.

Bob Funk is terrifically cast and performed, with some good lines. Shame the story and character development are so cliché and banal.

Movies -- especially inconsequential, earnest comedies like Bob Funk -- about how people achieved their sobriety " are as fascinating as listening to people recount the plot of their dreams.

[Bob Funk] insists that we find charm in its protagonist's most odious behavior.

If you can get through the tedious first half of Bob Funk, there's actually a decent little character study waiting on the other side.

A solid cast helps this quirky little comedy of existential angst.
