Second Best (2004)

Loveable Losers Movie #2

Synopsis: Pantoliano portrays pouting putz publishing perpetual personal pity-party.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Losers of the world unite!”

What Did I Learn?: You can't convince a gay man to give women a shot by favourably comparing a vagina to an asshole.

Really?: I had a bit of a hard time believing Richard would stay in touch with Elliot all those years. I certainly think he would sever the relationship after Elliot's failed physical attack.

Rating: Second Best is an often-funny, well-acted, and brilliantly-written dark comedy about a middle-aged writer and his less-than-successful buddies who are very, very down on themselves. Hilarity ensues when their one wealthy, and popular friend Richard comes to town. Highly recommended 9/10 stars.
