Chuck & Buck Reviews

February 12, 2008
Skirts stalker cliches and grown-up-kid-in-a-man's-body caricatures.
February 12, 2008
Do you like the clammy as opposed to the scary? Do you like dread rather than drama, anguish and emotional coagulation rather than screamfests?
February 12, 2008
Chuck & Buck might be the most perversely agreeable stalker picture ever made.
February 12, 2008
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.
February 12, 2008
Possibly the most daring and honest drama about sexuality I've ever seen.

January 1, 2000
It's poignant, laugh-out-loud funny and thoroughly provocative.
January 1, 2000
[One] of the better films to come out of Sundance this year.
January 1, 2000
There's enough haunting humanity in White's performance and screenplay to make his weird Buck far more touching than the kids in any dozen teen sex comedies.
January 1, 2000
The movie is so assured, so daring and successful on its own terms, that it can make ordinary cinematic beauty seem skin-deep.
January 1, 2000
You get lots of Chuck and lots of Buck, but not a lot of pluck.

May be the most interesting movie of the year.
January 1, 2000
What makes Chuck & Buck a brave movie is that it doesn't attempt to sugarcoat or elevate childish qualities the way movies such as Disney's The Kid and Forrest Gump do.
January 1, 2000
This odd, uneven movie, with its trumped-up ending that makes zero emotional sense given what came before, is perplexing in the extreme.
January 1, 2000
Its psychological layers don't overwhelm the film or kill the humor.
