Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Chuck & Buck might be the most perversely agreeable stalker picture ever made.

- David Edelstein, Slate, Tuesday, February 12, 2008

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.

- Dennis Harvey, Variety, Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Fresh: It's poignant, laugh-out-loud funny and thoroughly provocative.

- Ernest Hardy, Film.com, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Audience Reviews

3 stars

Odd, unsettling comedy-drama about a man who continues to have an obsession over his childhood friend. Writer and star, Mike White, is unnerving as Buck, a childlike, lollipop-sucking, 27 year old stalker that you won't soon forget. At once, humorous, tender, scary and pathetic. The film masterfully juggles all of these tones and it's difficult to categorize. Unique and memorable

"Chuck & Buck, Suck & Fuck!" Oh wow, what a unique film! Buck is such an intriguingly ominous character! You really can't help but fall in love with him, even if he is stalking his childhood bud. It's innocent enough, from an audience point of view. I'm sure that Chuck fellow found it a bit unsettling being persued day-in and day-out. I couldn't believe how calm Chuck was by the end of this film though. Totally creepy! I love it! Three cheers for ultra dark humour!

For a very gloom subject, the movie knows how to be funny when it needs to. Mike White's performance really makes this a stand-out as he expertly portrays his unsettling man-child character and really makes us wonder about how we sometimes cling too much to our past and how past actions can affect or disturb us, yet it also has a touch of hope and it ends up being a rather positive movie about growing up and changing. I was really only bothered by how it seemed there was no end in sight at first, but I was glad how they finished the story.
