Broad cultural stereotyping is just one example of this movie's dreary sense of humor.
The story... never comes together as a satisfying whole, even if it all proves relatively painless viewing.
Song of Back and Neck is a ridiculous (in a good way), oddly moving portrait of being stuck in a 25-year rut.
Only the comic parts soar, and they fit uneasily with the pallid romance and half-hearted family drama.
Because Lieberstein is an inherently likable actor, we identify with his plight, even if it takes a while to realize that he's essentially brought this situation upon himself.
While it's an amiable effort, there's not much to grasp onto in this film.
Lieberstein showcases a great handle on tone.
An alumnus of "The Office" has created a rom-com with the cringe-worthy situations, the quirky comic banter and a killer running gag worthy of the sitcom that made him.
A slight romantic comedy, containing a solid number of laughs, mostly of the awkward variety, and a decent amount of heart packed into an ultimately forgettable narrative.
Song of Back and Neck is worth a watch-even if you'll scratch your head more often than you'll laugh.
Do we really need another sad middle-age white guy comedy? Probably not, but if we have to have them, at least let them be more like Paul Lieberstein's Song of Back and Neck.
Fred Trolleycar may be as soft-spoken as Toby Flenderson but Lieberstein tackles these characters in different ways.
