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.

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.

It's a beautiful, delicately observed comedy.
June 21, 2008
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.

Lyrical and funny, Full Grown Men is a tough-minded film about the need to grow up.

Full Grown Men is a lovely, bewitching film with a lot on its mind.
November 7, 2007
A wanly likable road-trip comedy-drama about a young man's Peter Pan-like refusal to let go of his childhood.

The relationship between the stunted Alby and the mature Elias is funny and real.

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.

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.

It's dramatically unsatisfying.

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.

The candy-colored Full Grown Men wants to be a kind of anti-Wizard of Oz for a culture inundated with toys and toons.

For better and for worse (at least for a story about a man struggling to behave like an adult), Full Grown Men feels and thinks with the heart and mind of a child.
