Movie Info

A loud-mouthed lout has a less than cordial reunion with his brother in this independent comedy drama from director Drake Doremus. Sam Nussbaum (Andrew Dickler) is an insufferably opinionated loser who has somehow managed to charm a beautiful young woman, Steph (Marguerite Moreau), who has agreed to marry him. Steph is puzzled when she learns that Sam hasn't invited his brother, Tom (Ben York Jones), to the upcoming wedding; Sam doesn't want to talk about it, so Steph decides to surprise her fiancé by arranging for Tom to come to Los Angeles, where the couple lives. Sam and Tom had a falling out years before that neither of them likes to talk about, and as the siblings get reacquainted, the emotional distance between them is clear. When Tom mentions in passing that the only girl he ever loved was a classmate from grade school, Sam insists they drop everything and set out to find her; this leads to a grand-scale road trip that at once brings the brothers together and reinforces their opinions of one another, while also giving Sam a reason to postpone a wedding he no longer wants. Douchebag received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Douchebag

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (14)

This unfortunately titled film has an offbeat charm that just about makes up for its short running time.

October 29, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Despite the brief running time, audiences will likely lose interest before the film's speedy conclusion; turns out the most unexpected -- and entertaining -- thing about "Douchebag" is its title.

October 28, 2010 | Rating: 2/4

Writer/director Drake Doremus has created a funny movie where the humor comes from the nature of the characters rather than obvious comic setups.

October 28, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

As anthropological study, as a short-storylike glimpse into a character better observed from afar -- or through the lens of a jumpy digital video camera -- Douchebag is undeniably fascinating.

October 28, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The most provocative thing about the DIY trifle Douchebag is its title, and even that doesn't amount to much.

October 7, 2010 | Rating: 2/5

It's a minimalist Sideways, not so much mumblecore as talkycore.
