The Lonely Guy [VHS]
After discovering his sexpot girlfriend in bed with another man, writer Larry (Steve Martin) begins to feel that he is becoming something of a 'lonely guy'. His feeling of isolation is reinforced after an encounter with fellow sad loner Warren (Charles Grodin), who advises him to buy a fern for company and give up all hope of ever finding another life partner. However, after penning a manual based on his experiences Larry once again finds romance... but for how long?

If you’re feeling a bit down then this film will lift you I promise, it'll give you something to smile about. Perhaps its not his best film but it is still very, very, watchable.
Worth getting for the scene and dialogue with the lease agent, the scenes at the restaurant, the bridge suicide scenes and the scenes with the dog & stick ... plus lots more! There's plenty here to press your chuckle button.
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.Read more ›
The DVD is in anamorthic widescreen and very good quality.
