The Good Guy

Critics Consensus

The Good Guy has an attractive cast, but they aren't done any favors by the film's cardboard characters and cliched plot.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • It's network television drama, starring actors best known for their TV work and full of the petty gripes and mild worries of characters who really have nothing compelling to worry about.

  • It has smart characters, and is wise about the ones who try to tame their intelligence by acting out.

    March 4, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The Good Guy has a few half-cute moments, some chuckles, and enough pretty faces to cast at least two TV pilots. What it doesn't have is a clue.

    March 3, 2010 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • There's too little difference between the good guys and the bad guys in Julio DePietro's uninspired debut, a slickly cynical romance destined to be quickly forgotten.

    February 19, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Drawing on his stint at a Chicago investment firm, DePietro creates characters, dialogue and situations that feel authentic, which makes the film relevant in unexpected ways, though not as deeply as you hope he'll do in the future.

Audience Reviews for The Good Guy

  • Dec 04, 2010
    I was surprised to see this has a fairly bad rating, I actually quite enjoyed it. I picked it up fairly cheap as it has Alexis Bledel in it. I would never claim she is a great actress, but I liked The Gilmore Girls, and she does have a pleasant girl next door quality which makes her watchable. Then I noticed Andrew McCarthy and Anna Chlumsky where also in it. Even better The story pretty much just follows a girl and her relationship with her boyfriend, and his situation at work. It is one of those all are not as it seems stories. Along the way there are a few laughs with some fun supporting characters and also a male makeover, which makes a change to the usual ugly duckling girl story. I found this pleasant viewing which didn't drag in it's 80 minute run time.

    This was actually pretty entertaining. It was a little short, but it was better than I thought it would be.

    Not bad. Not great. Seemed to make an attempt at a nice romantic drama, but doesn't quite go all the way.
