Movie Info

Once a promising young chef, Charlie (Freddie Highmore) is now an unmotivated twenty-something who lives at home with his mom (Marg Helgenberger) and stepfather while working at a small movie theatre and living vicariously through his best friend, Ben (Haley Joel Osment). His life takes an unpredictable turn however, when he finds himself falling for local barista Amber (Odeya Rush). Problem is, Amber has her own distractions- her mooching roommate (Jake Abel) a track star boyfriend (Taylor John Smith) and steadfast plans to move to New York City. On top of that, Charlie's estranged father (Christopher Meloni) unexpectedly re-enters his life just as he begins to take a long, hard look at where he's going and who he wants to be. With conflict after conflict piling on, will Charlie reach his tipping point or will he finally find the path forward?

Critic Reviews for Almost Friends

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

A comic drama that's sometimes appealingly gentle but more often frustratingly amorphous.

You can see where this is going from a mile away. What makes it a pleasant film to watch (and it's out now "On Demand") are the leads.

[The film] has an easygoing charm that should earn it a solid place among the subset of movies about young people who emerge from their small-town cocoons and screw up their courage to take flight for the bright lights of New York City.

The two stars develop an offbeat chemistry, although the screenplay pushes an abundance of cutesy contrivances to muddle the emotional payoff.

Just what we need right now: a comedy about a stalker! Thank you, Jake Goldberger, an auteur for our times.

There's gentleness to the effort that's appealing, but it doesn't last long enough.
