FULL GROWN MEN

Large_film_12732727_photo1

Alby (Matt McGrath) never really grew up,and he doesn't want to. At 35 years-old, he surrounds himself with action figures that blind him to the fact that his young son is the most mature man in the house. So when things get a little too…adult, Alby leaves his family and heads to his mother's house, where he can lie on the couch and watch his beloved martial arts show reruns. While his childhood maid cleans around him, he is suddenly reminded of his best friend from school, Elias (Judah Firedlander). As it turns out, Alby made Elias' life, past and present, awful by saddling him with a not so nice Spanish nickname. Fearing irreparable karmic damage, Alby tracks Elias down. Although Alby's life seems to have stood still, Elias' world has changed. He is now a drama teacher to mentally challenged children and well-liked by all. Alby invites himself along on Elias' class trip to an amusement park, and what starts out as a fun road-trip turns into a bumpy ride. Along the way, Alby runs into a slew of failed romantics, including a disgruntled ex-theme park employee (Alan Cumming), a bartender working her way through clown school (Amy Sedaris), and a delusional ex-Weeki Wachee mermaid (Deborah Harry) who points Alby in the right direction. David Munro's oddly charming directorial debut is alternately quirky, heartwarming, and funny.
