This review is from: Chuck And Buck [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
Chuck and Buck grew up together as best friends until Chuck's family moved away when he was eleven. When Buck's mother unexpectedly dies Sixteen years later Buck writes to his childhood friend to invite him to his mother's funeral. Now a successful music executive Chuck returns to attend the funeral only to find after sixteen years apart Buck is emotionally and socially immature and has essentially remained an eleven year old child in a man's body. Embarrassed by the situation Chuck quickly returns back to his fiancé in Los Angeles and ignores any other attempts by Buck to contact him. Shattered by his rejection and his mother's death now making him financially independent, Buck moves to L.A desperate to rekindle their old friendship, which at first becomes a nuisance and soon descends into stalking and blackmail of a shared secret past.
If you're expecting a comedy then you will be hugely disappointed, this is a dark and often uncomfortable film which deals with adolescent homosexual experiences which is very much similar in tone to the work of Todd Solondz. But is you enjoyed films liked 'Happiness' and 'Palindromes' then 'Chuck and Buck' is a touching though uneasy experience.
