Movie InfoThe perfect kidnapping scheme take a hilarious turn for the worse when a hapless repo man and his septuagenarian partner find a major league baseball player tied up in the trunk of their most recent acquisition in first-time feature filmmaker Eric Fleming's high-speed comedy of errors.

Critic Reviews for The Almost Guys
Fleming brings a feeling of loose, lively fun to the story. He writes funny characters, funny dialogue and funny situations.
The film staggers under the weight of stale gags and a meandering plot.
The Almost Guys reveals itself as a mawkish men-on-the-road comedy, a stultifying cross-country odyssey of bonding, bickering and group peeing.
