Audience Reviews for The Lonely Guy

    If you're sad and lonely, watch this great comedy, you'll still be lonely but at least you wont be sad about it anymore!

    The title of this movie pretty much says it all. This is a movie about a lonely guy who is searching for some love. He's tormented by his own loneliness and this movie follows him in his search for a woman to fall in love with. A classic Steve Martin movie, very good.

    One of the weakest of Martin's 80s movies. Quite dated, but still worth a watch if you're a hardcore fan.
    Wu C Super Reviewer

    Had a couple funny moments here & there but definitely not Steve Martins best
