Folk Hero & Funny Guy Reviews
Folk Hero & Funny Guy is an amiable road movie powered by great music. But it's much more than just that.
A rambling road trip story with no real point to it.
[An] amiable feature that boasts the kind of old-school charm and chemistry that more comedies could stand to tap into.
Anthony Ray Bench
Folk Hero & Funny Guy has a lot of heart; it's a feel-good movie with a mesmerizing charm that makes it a definite watch.
This is far from your average road trip comedy.
Common Sense Media
Jeffrey M. Anderson
Written and directed by Jeff Grace, this laid-back, bittersweet comedy at first seems a little formulaic, but as it goes along, it relies less on silly situations than on interesting characters.
In the film's best scenes, Jeff Grace displays a delicate understanding of various modes of male fragility.
Eye for Film
Too much and not enough at the same time, it complements its characters well, but is no more watchable.
What Folk Hero & Funny Guy needed was tighter scripting that focused more building humor out of conflict than coasting the structure of a conflict comedy to the finish line.
... Jeff Grace's Folk Hero & Funny Guy doesn't feel like a warmed-over Apatow production, in part because it has the courage to let the "funny guy" half of its duo be kind of a mediocrity in his field.
New York Times
What do you get if you make a movie about an aimless, unpleasant road trip? Good guess. For verification, see "Folk Hero & Funny Guy."
Los Angeles Times
"Folk Hero & Funny Guy" is the kind of road trip movie where it's a pleasure to ride shotgun.
Grace's easygoing indie delivers a somewhat more melancholy performance than its droll exterior initially suggests.
The kind of road movie that relies less on incident than on the chemistry between the guys in the car.
Writer/director Jeff Grace's comedy/drama is lifted by the likability and charisma of his leads and the gentleness of his charming screenplay.
A solid debut made with warmth and a cozy charm.
Film Journal International
Slight but sweet, actor Jeff Grace's first feature as writer-director shows a confident hand and a distinctive voice that [...] avoids easy answers or simplistic resolutions.
The Weekend Warrior
Such a fun and funny movie about a long-time friendship that's put to the test through a road trip.
starts so confidently that its unobtrusive competence is something of a let-down
The Film Stage
Folk Hero & Funny Guy rises above cliché thanks to a sure-handed, thought-out script, and memorable performances.
