  • Miguel Arteta's (STAR MAPS) sophomore directorial effort is the disturbing, heartbreaking, and comic tale of Buck O'Brien, a 27-year-old with a serious case of arrested development. Buck, played by Mike White, who also wrote the screenplay, is a man with the social skills of an 11-year-old, still living in his childhood past surrounded by toys, his favorite candy (Blow Pops), and photos of his one and only friend, Chuck. After his mother's death, Buck writes to Chuck, whom he hasn't seen since they were boys. Chuck, played by director Chris Weitz (AMERICAN PIE), comes to the funeral with his fiance, Carlyn (Beth Colt), only to discover that Buck has developed an eccentric, intense fixation on him. When Chuck, now called Charlie, makes an offhand invitation for Buck to visit them in L.A., Buck packs up his toys and moves there. He begins stalking the increasingly wary and angry Charlie, a handsome, successful record producer who feels his perfect life threatened by Buck's hints about their past. A funny, discomfiting tale of sexual obsession with a twist, CHUCK & BUCK continually engages and surprises viewers with Buck's frantic, yet oddly sympathetic, quest for love.
