NARRATIVE FEATURE | 89 MIN | 2010

NICE GUY JOHNNY

Sure, she can be a little overbearing sometimes, but Johnny Rizzo loves his fiancée Claire, and he made her a promise: By the time he's 25, he'll trade his current dream job as a sports talk radio host (even if it is the 2 a.m. slot) for something that'll pay bigger bucks. And Johnny's nothing if not a man of his word. Now he's flying to New York to interview for some snoozeville job that Claire's well-to-do dad set up. Enter Uncle Terry, a rascally womanizer bent on turning a day in the Hamptons into a final fling for his nephew. Nice guy Johnny's not interested, of course, but then he meets the lovely Brooke….

A master of the modern relationship dramedy, Edward Burns is once again in top form as a writer, director, and wise-crackin' actor. His swaggering bartender Terry is the perfect foil to baby-faced Matt Bush's (Adventureland) Johnny, and together they're great at trading Burns' characteristically sharp dialogue. More contrasts are mined with Anna Wood's image-conscious Claire and Kerry Bische's (Scrubs) Brooke, a blonde-haired and bright-eyed free spirit. Burns wraps a summery tone around Johnny's real crisis: follow through with your promises, or follow your heart?
