Movie Info

Directed by Slamdance Film Festival co-founder Dan Mirvish (BETWEEN US) from a long-lost script by Oscar/Pulitzer-winning cartoonist and screenwriter Jules Feiffer (Mike Nichols' CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, Robert Altman's POPEYE) based on characters that date back to 1957, BERNARD AND HUEY is the story of roguish Huey (David Koechner, ANCHORMAN) and nebbishy Bernard (Oscar-winner Jim Rash, THE WAY WAY BACK), who are unlikely collegiate friends in late 1980s New York. Years later, a bedraggled Huey crashes at Bernard's upscale bachelor pad. As the two reconnect, Bernard falls in love with Huey's estranged daughter Zelda (Mae Whitman, GOOD GIRLS), an aspiring graphic novelist who's got a seductive new creative partner, Conrad (Eka Darville, JESSICA JONES). Huey slowly gets his mojo back and tries to seduce the various women in Bernard's life, including his off-again girlfriend Roz (Sasha Alexander, RIZZOLI & ISLES) and colleague, Mona (Nancy Travis, SO I MARRIED AN AXE MURDERER), while reconnecting with his ex-wife (Bellamy Young, SCANDAL) and brother (Richard Kind, ARGO).

Bernard and Huey is a small pleasure; it's almost always welcome to watch a character-based film crafted without pretentions...

A lovingly detailed look at two unhappy and unpleasant men.

Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Wades in its own shallow cleverness, and seems to be under the misapprehension that acknowledging the shallowness of the characters and storyline is, in itself, clever. But it only takes a few scenes for that observation to become painfully obvious.

Devoted Feifferites, not to mention fans of Mr. Rash and Mr. Koechner, who get to flex their muscles nicely here, will be well sated.

Like its developmentally-arrested, misbehaving man-children, the long-shelved source material hasn't aged particularly well.
