About the Movie
When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (TYLER LABINE), unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride Kristin (JESS WEIXLER) and groom Scott (JUSTIN LONG) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpy’s body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds’ path leads them to a fifteen-year-old girl in a small, northern Minnesota town, all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There were many directions in which writer-director Ted Koland could take this story - dead guy at the wedding, new marriage tested by extreme circumstances, a friend's hidden life - but none of his choices are remotely interesting.
Rotten: A very disjointed, confused, and sloppy movie.
Rotten: While it tries to relate a story about the sloppiness of life, the way best-laid plans can go wrong in an instant, its script is neatly and tidily structured.
Best Man Down
This is not a comedy just because Justin Long is in it! It has a few funny moments but for the most part it's a well acted, well directed drama. It's about a guy who dies at a wedding and two of his friends (the bride and groom) take his body home for the funeral. While there they find out that there was much more to their deceased friend than they ever imagined. It's really quite touching.

So this movie was hard to watch. It was good and definitely pulled at your heart. But it still was dry and lacking in something. You never really know people.
Wasn't sure about renting this one, but so glad I did. One of the best movies I've seen in a very long time! Great acting, and amazing story line. A must see.
