Best Man Down Reviews

August 29, 2019
Even if it plays with surface expectations, the film backs itself into a contrived formula, a nice little box with an old banana peel for a bow.

Finding much of value in this film is tough, but there's enough to keep it afloat.

... broad and obvious comedy that never generates many laughs or captures a consistent tone.

There were many directions in which writer-director Ted Koland could take this story - dead guy at the wedding, new marriage tested by extreme circumstances, a friend's hidden life - but none of his choices are remotely interesting.

A very disjointed, confused, and sloppy movie.

Perhaps there's a different cut of Best Man Down out there somewhere, one that's patient and sincere. In its current state, the movie seldom penetrates, playing like a highlight reel of initial intentions.

The comic scenes are hackneyed and predictable, but "Best Man Down" turns out to have a heart as big as its title character.

While it tries to relate a story about the sloppiness of life, the way best-laid plans can go wrong in an instant, its script is neatly and tidily structured.
November 2, 2013
A slight, but sweet and surprisingly touching combination of mournful romance, coming-of-age picture and friend-I-never-really-knew drama.

Best Man Down strikes a blissful tonal mix that turns one man's death into another man's enlightening journey, as both Justin Long and Tyler Labine flex their dramatic acting muscles.

When your film's most compelling character dies in the first five minutes, your film has a problem.

The movie's tearjerking core starts to get buried beneath needless distractions.

An indie comedy that seems good enough but never left me feeling I had to see it.
