Chuck & BuckClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
An offbeat film about 27-year-old Buck (Mike White) reuniting with boyhood friend Chuck (Chris Weitz), who decides -- evidence to the contrary -- that they're still best pals. This fascinating look at the weird chemistry of attachment and obsession gets darker as a rebuffed Chuck begins to stalk Buck, who'll need a huge No-Pest Strip to end the one-sided infatuation.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As close to magic as contemporary movies get.
Fresh: One of the year's best and most provocative films.
Fresh: That Chuck & Buck holds attention despite -- or partly due to -- its murky, troubling central conceit can be credited to execution that's stealthy and low-key throughout.
Rotten: This odd, uneven movie, with its trumped-up ending that makes zero emotional sense given what came before, is perplexing in the extreme.
How an indie movie should make you feel.
"Chuck & Buck" is everything an indie movie should be, a simple story grounded in reality that takes the viewer through a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It conveys unnerving drama, quirky comedy, and unflinching conflict. A great example of previously unknown major talent grabbing a camera and putting on a show without the influence or interruption of studio types. Mike White, star and writer, is a unique voice and knows his characters so very well.
Could of been better
First one to review awesome!! Anyways, this was ok but not to great! Like a banana right after its ripe and you decided to eat it still tastes good but not like how it would have been when it was ripe.
Chuck & Buck is one of the worst films I've ever seen. The acting is as bad as a grammer school Christmas pageant. Mike White has done some decent work over the years, this is just not it.
