The Last Straight Man (2014)

The Last Straight Man 2014

US Title:
The Last Straight Man
Mark Bessenger

What’s It About?
After a raunchy bachelor party, a groom-to-be drunkenly sleeps with his closeted best friend. The two men decide to return to the same hotel room once a year and continue their secret affair.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I like the unique premise of this movie, but unfortunately the film doesn’t quite deliver on its potential. The movie is primarily driven by dialogue, taking place in the same hotel suite over the span of twelve years. With the focus of the film exclusively on the conversations between two characters, any flaws in the script or the performances seem exacerbated, which is sadly the case here. The best part of this movie is the song that plays during the end credits. It’s “Next Year” by Kevin Henry and, unfortunately, you can’t buy a digital version anywhere.

Final Grade: D-
