Full Grown Men

2006 / 78min. / USA

Alby Cutrera (Matt McGrath) is a pathologically nostalgic guy who yearns for a time when life was carefree and action figures were 12-inches tall. When his wife kicks him out for being more of a playmate than a father to his young son, Alby tracks down his boyhood pal Elias (Judah Friedlander) for a trip down memory lane. Only Elias's version of their younger days is considerably less rosy.

In a twist of fate, Alby and Elias set out on a comedic road trip to Diggityland, their favorite place as kids, but simpler times turn complicated as the two friends confront the landmines of their past. Journeying through the timeless back roads of Florida, they encounter a cast of crazy characters - a disgruntled ex-theme park employee (Alan Cumming), a horny bartending clown (Amy Sedaris), and a delusional mermaid (Deborah Harry) - each one shedding light on the perils of not letting go.

Full Grown Men is the bittersweet tale of a man who learns the hard way that the best years of his life may still lay ahead.

Full Grown Men is the debut feature of acclaimed shorts director David Munro. The film premiered to rave reviews at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival and won the 2007 Sundance Channel Audience Award for the indieWIRE: Undiscovered Gems film series. New York Magazine, LA Weekly, San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, Nerve.com and ABC have already hitched a ride on this "wickedly funny satire" that "tears down the clichés of maturity" in a "freewheeling, anarchic look at one man's second try at coming of age."
