    It's all we ask of a film but almost never get, as it first makes us squirm, then makes us cheer.

    One of the best films of the year. Queer in every sense of the word, it's poignant, laugh-out-loud funny and thoroughly provocative.
  3. The kind of movie that gets under your skin and takes root.
  4. Comes on like an "After School Special'' psychodrama that's been taken off its medication.

    An oddity, but a remarkably intriguing and original one, and in Buck ... it also has the most unforgettable movie character of the year.
  6. 70
    Arteta and White manage to bring off both the comedy and the tenderness in this tale of a jilted friend who sticks to his passions like chewing gum on a shoe.
  7. 25
    Unlike other movies about unpleasant characters, "In the Company of Men," for example, Chuck & Buck doesn't have that sharp observational edge.
