Just as its protagonist is stuck between childhood and adulthood, Full Grown Men waivers uncomfortably between comedy and drama, lacking the discipline to commit to either one.

Full Grown Men doesn't even make childhood seem like all that much fun.
Full Grown Men is an artistically integrated film that introduces a refreshing new talent to the independent scene, one who combines the visual palette of filmmaker Harmony Korine with an all-important sense of narrative.
Friedlander offers a nicely subtle performance, but the other actors -- including Alan Cumming, Deborah Harry and Amy Sedaris -- appear to have turned up as a favor to the director. Don't feel obliged to follow their lead.
Full Grown Men often becomes as intolerably silly as the twee Amerindies it's reacting to.
Wears a bit thin even at its brief length.
Full Grown Men is nicely photographed and has impressive sets; too bad there's so little going on that it seems long even at 78 minutes.
Full Grown Men might work better if the audience was given a reason to feel even a small sliver of sympathy for Alby
Peter Pan syndrome is a tremendously interesting psychological condition, but Men would rather make tiresome action figure jokes and spotlight whining characters. Blah.
Hasn't got a joke worth laughing over.
It's dramatically unsatisfying.
The world is uncomfortably perfect, and sparkly wide shots of stretches of landscape across which Alby walks reduce him to the lost little boy he insists on remaining, swallowed by the big bad world.
This whimsically crafted tale that manages to be simultaneously silly, surreal and wise beyond years, is a combo memory lane, reverse time travel road movie and thirtysomething boy bonding satire, plus flaky storytelling in the extreme.
