Full Grown Men (2008)
Critic Consensus: 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.

News & Interviews for Full Grown Men
Critic Reviews for Full Grown Men
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.
Audience Reviews for Full Grown Men
(from The Watermark, 04/05/07) Not a gay film per se, but certainly one of local interest since it was shot in Florida. The story centers around a family man (Matt McGrath) who is still emotionally clinging to his childhood. Thrown out by his wife for his immaturity, he looks up a childhood friend (30 Rock's Judah Friedlander) and they embark on a road trip together where they encounter a parade of quirky characters played by the likes of (openly gay) Alan Cumming, Deborah Harry, and Amy Sedaris. You can probably see what's coming -- the journey kick-starts the slow process of growing up -- and the film is mostly entertaining along the way. While some of the comedy is a little contrived, the film is still thematically consistent in presenting us with characters who somehow can't let go of the past. Floridians may find the patchworking of familiar locales a little disconcerting, but Orlandoans will definitely enjoy the theme-park jabs.
This picture has alot to offer, I was able to see it before DVD release and its great, great story, great actors and ton's of fun. A+ inmy book, get it today! Randy N
