Movie Info

A divorced, alcoholic salesman attempts to pull his life together in time to get his old job back and avoid becoming the laughing stock of the company in this midlife crisis comedy starring Michael Leydon Campbell, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Amy Ryan. As if a failing marriage and a serious bout with the bottle aren't troublesome enough, socially challenged salesman Bob Funk (Leydon Campbell) realizes that his life has really hit the skids when he's fired by his own mother (Grace Zabriskie). Now, in order to rejoin the sales force, Bob will have to take stock of his life and meet his problems head on. When Bob finds himself falling for the very woman his mother has hired in as his replacement, however, the road to recovery starts to get a little bumpy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Bob Funk

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

Looks like a comedy, acts like a comedy and sounds like a comedy, but it isn't funny.

[Bob Funk] insists that we find charm in its protagonist's most odious behavior.

March 17, 2009

Playing the misogynistic, bar-hopping, impulsive, titular irritant, Campbell's thespy histrionics come off as truly labored.

If you can get through the tedious first half of Bob Funk, there's actually a decent little character study waiting on the other side.

February 27, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Carlisle's film is designed with a certain suburban flatness that at times perfectly reflects Bob's inner deadness, though not his periodic spurts of sarcastic rage.

February 27, 2009

Movies -- especially inconsequential, earnest comedies like Bob Funk -- about how people achieved their sobriety " are as fascinating as listening to people recount the plot of their dreams.
