Full Grown Men

Movie Summary

Director:
David Munro
Released:
2008
Rating:
Not Available
Alby Cutrera yearns for a time when life was carefree and action figures were twelve inches tall. When his wife insults him for being more of a playmate than a father to his young son, Alby heads for safety and tracks down his boyhood pal Elias whose memory of their younger days is considerably less rosy. They set out on a road trip to Diggityland, their favorite place as kids, but simpler times turn complicated as the two friends confront the land mines of their past. Journeying through the Oz of Central Florida, they encounter a cast of wounded roadside romantics - a disgruntled ex-theme park employee, a horny bartending clown, and a delusional mermaid - 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 lie ahead of him.
