| Sometimes charming, sometimes not
"The Best Man" explores well known territory. The best man falls for the bride who is about to marry a cheating, selfish bastard. We've seen it before and we've probably seen it better, too. Still, "The Best Man" gets away with rehashing a story that's older than Prince Charles' mom, because it's really charming at times. The mixed ensemble of British and American actors make a lot out of some rather trite lines in the script. Seth Green steals the show. The movie is at its worst when it's trying to be cute or sell Townsend as a lovable clown, when he's really so clumsy he should be locked away. And, oh, the "wrong chapel" joke at the end, that one's older than Catherine Zeta-Jones' husband! Still, "The Best Man" doesn't try to be anything else than a nice little romantic flick which gets a chuckle out of you every now and then and that's just what it is. Good clean fun to watch with your partner on a comfy evening at home.
