5.0 out of 5 stars Most underrated Steve Martin film ever. 4 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen this film pilloried in some reviews and described as, 'the rarity that is a bad Steve Martin film'. I don't go with that. I think the entire film is hilarious. Every actor has a good role and plays it well. Charles Grodin once again turns in a superb performance, this time as the experienced lonely guy who mentors Martin and advises him on things to buy to cope with being partnerless. And a mark of how good and timeless this film is, is the fact that the compere on 'Live at the Apollo' a week or so ago, unashamedly borrowed a very funny scene from the film in his build up to the appearance of the various acts. Maybe people won't like this simply because they have a different sense of humour from me, but I found it to be one laugh after another. You have to see it to appreciate it really, and the sad-sounding voice over only serves to add to its comic value. Watch out for Steve Lawrence also; his character is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars This lonely girl loved the lonely guy! 20 Nov 2008
By Rae8908
During my night in I started flicking through the TV channels and came across this gem of a comedy starring the lovely Steve Martin. I have to say I'm not really familiar with a lot of Steve Martins work but this just for some reason had a big impact on me and I had to buy it. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd recommend it for any lonely guy or girl out there who just needs to laugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 2 May 2011
By Kate
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Steve Martin films. Just silly fun. Perfect if you need a bit of cheering . Bizarre but meant to be devoid of reality when you need a break from it.Having had a suicide in the family even the suicide humour made me laugh.Perhaps there is reality, made funny.Worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's just a wild and lonely guy 5 Feb 2006
While The Lonely Guy is first and foremost a comedy, one that descends into comic incredulity on a number of occasions, it really hits a few solid line drives in terms of the lonely guy angle. Steve Martin may be the star of this film, but Charles Grodin steals every scene he's in. He's the true lonely guy in this movie. Larry Hubbard, Martin's character, is really just a guy with really bad luck with women. After coming home to find his current girlfriend in bed with another man, Hubbard finds himself out on the street, struggling to get his bearings. That's where Warren Evans (Grodin) comes in. Warren really knows the ropes when it comes to loneliness, so he is more than qualified to instruct Hubbard in the art of living and being alone. Not all that much later, Larry meets up with Iris (Judith Ivey), a woman who tickles his fancy despite the fact she's been married more times than Larry has fingers on one hand, isn't all that attractive, is obviously lying through her teeth when she says she's thirty, and turns out to be something of a romantic psycho. Larry, of course, loses her phone number, beginning a whole series of misadventures serving to keep the two apart. Once he does meet up with Iris again, the world's most dysfunctional relationship begins. Iris, to grossly oversimplify things, doesn't want to be with a man she loves because she's afraid of being hurt again. All sorts of zany adventures ensue.
But what of Warren? Here's the guy I can identify with. While regular people are out having fun, Warren's playing chess with a sarcastic computer. He has life-size cut-outs of famous people all over the apartment so that it looks like someone is actually there when he throws a little party.
