Following his critically acclaimed Star Maps, Miguel Arteta directs this perverse Odd Couple-esque comedy drama. Childhood best buddies Chuck and Buck are reunited after 18 years during the funeral of the latter's mother. Chuck (Chris Weitz who also produced American Pie (1999)) is a button-down movie executive with a gorgeous blond fiancée, Carlyn (Beth Colt). By contrast, the intervening years do not seem to have matured Buck (Mike White) in the slightest -- he still plays with children's

Chuck & Buck might be the most perversely agreeable stalker picture ever made.
That Chuck & Buck holds attention despite -- or partly due to -- its murky, troubling central conceit can be credited to execution that's stealthy and low-key throughout.
Possibly the most daring and honest drama about sexuality I've ever seen.
Creepy, funny, yet surprisingly affecting, Miguel Arteta's darkly comic drama pulls off a remarkable balancing act.
Of all the films to premiere at Sundance 2000, there is one movie that best represented what indie film is supposed to be.
Chuck & Buck is a film which you can't quite get a fix on: it's a movie about child sex which is also as airy and sweetly likeable as anything you'll see this year.
Thought-provoking jet-black comedy that may not be for all tastes, but is well-worth seeking out.
This is a thoughtful, difficult film. See it if you are ready to be challenged.
Here's an odd film: a heartfelt, sweet and funny little story about a coming of age better late than never, it's also the disturbing tale of a pathetic gay sociopath and the man he stalks.
It's certain to make almost everyone in the audience squirm, either out of embarrassment for the characters or because the situation hits too close to home...
It was often painfully difficult to watch. It was never predictable, though, which is saying something.
One of the most fiercely original films about adults coping with their pasts.
This is a troubling yet rewarding film that ultimately gives us a sense of hope by showing us resolution within the confines of normal behaviour.
