Mr. Show alumnus Bob Odenkirk's directorial debut, Melvin Goes to Dinner, is based on the play Phyrogiants! by Michael Blieden, who also adapted the script for the screen and stars in the film's titular role. Melvin has just broken up with his girlfriend, Trenice (Melora Walters), and has met up with his friend Joey (Matt Price) and two women, Alex (Stephanie Courtney) and Sarah (Annabelle Gurwitch), whose relationship to the men remains ambiguous. From there, the bulk of the action takes place

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Isn't note perfect by any stretch, but it's great fun to listen to.
Makes for a witty, urbane and down-to-earth night of discussion that packs a good deal of kick.
Despite its compositional flaws, Melvin Goes to Dinner will please anyone who takes the art of social chatter seriously.
Odenkirk's direction and Blieden's script consistently steer Melvin toward gentle and humane moments of revelation, which might feel incidental if they weren't delivered with so much wit and such bracing generosity.
Odenkirk's movie should inspire viewers to call up old friends, order a bottle of wine, and talk the night away.
