The Good Guy

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: A wall street hot shot (Scott Porter) trains a guy who's just too good (Bryan Greenberg) in having it all: the money, the looks, the girls. But do women prefer good guys or bad boys?

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Scott Porter, Alexis Bledel, Bryan Greenberg, Anna Chlumshky, Aaron Yoo, Andrew McCarthy, Jessalyn Wanlim, Andrew Stewart-Jones, Christine Evangelista, Jeane Fournier

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. This movie is like a cross between a failed Hollywood rom-com and fairly decent indy film.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: When all else fails, go for the guttural.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: According to this movie, the only way to make money on wall street is to objectify women and party a lot. And if this hypothesis is correct, it does make me want to cry, because I would never pick those morons to handle my money, and now our whole economy has gone down the toilet!

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Chick-flick Most Likely to be Enjoyed by Men and Hated by Women.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Bryan Greenberg really grows on you, while Scott Porter smoothly moves in the opposite direction... but that's what he's supposed to do, so it's actually a compliment.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: The pacing is slow and awkward with an amateur feel at the start, but eventually it picks up and takes you with it.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: The first scene is squirmish and makes you feel uncomfortable (which is good), but that is quickly forgotten as we flashback to how it all came to that. What follows feels like it would best be enjoyed on TV, as the jokes are hit and miss and the story's direction is obvious-- at least up until the tacked on, unexpected ending, that may or may not make it deeper than it seemed.

Q: Where can I see the trailer?
