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.

... broad and obvious comedy that never generates many laughs or captures a consistent tone.

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.

A very disjointed, confused, and sloppy movie.

Perhaps there's a different cut of Best Man Down out there somewhere, one that's patient and sincere. In its current state, the movie seldom penetrates, playing like a highlight reel of initial intentions.

A slight, but sweet and surprisingly touching combination of mournful romance, coming-of-age picture and friend-I-never-really-knew drama.

Finding much of value in this film is tough, but there's enough to keep it afloat.

The comic scenes are hackneyed and predictable, but "Best Man Down" turns out to have a heart as big as its title character.

We Got This Covered

Best Man Down strikes a blissful tonal mix that turns one man's death into another man's enlightening journey, as both Justin Long and Tyler Labine flex their dramatic acting muscles.

Is it just me or is it hard to find Tyler Labine unlikable? He's got this presence about him where he could be getting drunk and making a scene at his… More
