Movie Info

Herman Spooner (Matthew Lillard) is a used car salesman who still lives at home with his parents. Spooner is fairly set in his unfulfilling routine, but turning 30 marks a hard deadline set by his mom (Kate Burton) and dad (Christopher McDonald) to get a place of his own. To top it off, Spooner's boss (Shea Whigham) is putting on the pressure to bring in some numbers, or face the chopping block. Headed for one of the worst days of his life, Spooner meets the girl of his dreams, Rose (Nora Zehetner). Forgoing all other priorities, Spooner is now working on winning her heart, but on their perfect date, she breaks the news that she is about to leave for the Philippines. How far will Spooner go to keep Rose in town and show her he really knows how to spoon? --(c) Moving Picturesmore

Before you can say "Judd Apatow" we're whisked away into a movie Never-Ever-land of yeah-right romance for going-nowhere guys.

Top Critic

Spooner unfolds in an alternate, fantasy reality where girls swoon over de-masculinized awkwardness, and its makers additionally assume this is will automatically tickle an audience pink.

Audience Reviews for Spooner

Deeeelightful!!! I am amazed at the lack of interest for this movie. I found it absolutely charming, quirky, and really well done.

Very cliched but I found it had a few good moments.
Christopher McDonald seems to play the same role in every movie I have seen him in.
