Chuck and Buck has been winning accolades at film festivals, and I'm at a loss to explain why.

...neither of the principals is a likable character and Buck's inappropriate behaviors quickly become genuinely annoying...

You get lots of Chuck and lots of Buck, but not a lot of pluck.

Any movie that sentimentalizes stalking ought to be shunned.

Chuck & Buck is terrific up until its last act, when it takes such a wrong turn that I almost want to write two separate reviews.

When is Hollywood going to realize that stalking is not a funny subject for a movie and that stalkers themselves are certainly not endearing enough to make them the focus of a film?

This odd, uneven movie, with its trumped-up ending that makes zero emotional sense given what came before, is perplexing in the extreme.

A would-be comedy about an emotionally immature stalker.

The climactic confrontation between the two men near the film's end ... simply doesn't ring true.

Chuck & Buck sinks thanks to a fundamental misunderstanding of how to structure a plot with a plausible character arc.

Do you like the clammy as opposed to the scary? Do you like dread rather than drama, anguish and emotional coagulation rather than screamfests?

The chief strength of Chuck & Buck comes from its even-handedness.

One of the most fiercely original films about adults coping with their pasts.

It is about someone who is desperate to find someone to love him, more than it is about homosexuality.
