The Souler Opposite ★★ 1997 (R)

Buddies Barry (Meloni) and Robert (Busfield) haven't grown up—especially where women are concerned. Most of struggling comic Barry's material is about his failed relationships while complacent, married Robert learns that his wife has decided she's a lesbian. Then sexist Barry meets feminist Thea (Moloney) and sparks fly—but can “souler” opposites really come together? First-time writer/director Kalmenson knows the territory since he's a stand-up comedian himself. 104m/C VHS, DVD . Christopher Meloni, Timothy Busfield, Janel Moloney, Allison Mackie, John Putch, Rutanya Alda, Steve Landesberg; D: Bill Kalmenson; W: Bill Kalmenson; C: Amit Bhattacharya; M: Peter Himmelman.
