Man About Town
starring Ben Affleck, Rebecca Romijn, Sam Ball, Mike Binder, Adam Goldberg, Ling Bai, Howard Hesseman and John Cleese
written by and directed by Mike Binder
I watched this movie mostly because of Howard Hesseman and John Cleese. It was a mistake. Affleck plays Jack Giomoro, a successful Hollywood talent agent plagued by suspicion that his wife is having an affair. To his friends’surprise Jack enrolls in an Adult Education class (taught by John Cleese) for which he keeps a daily diary. But his diary is stolen by a reporter threatening him with unflattering stories. That plus his suspicion about his wife threaten his affluent lifestyle. Jack is confused and no longer has confidence in what he’s doing or who he is.
Writer-director Mike Binder appears as Jack’s business partner, Morty.
