Larry Hubbard is the perfect sweet hapless character that Steve Martin can bring to life. Though the comic material stretches thin by the end of The Lonely Guy, itís an enjoyable comedy that finds humor in some unexpected places and even gets somewhat avant-garde in its treatment of suicide.

a city with eight million people like New York, strangers in a street of
frenzied urbanites scurrying about their own business. Like many so many
city relationships, Larry shares rooms with his girl friend, but the lease
is in her name. When she takes on a new lover, Larry finds himself on
a parked on a Central Park bench where he meets the lugubrious Warren,.
another lonely soul dealing with his painful share of rejection. Warren is
the original lonely guy and heís more than happy to share his vast
experience with Larry presenting him with a montage lonely guy survival
measures. The Lonely Guy makes a great change in direction when Larry
is fired from his job as a hack greeting card writer and writes the ultimate
lonely guy guide, an instant best seller. You can see the possibilities.
