Storyline

It's early July in Philadelphia. Childhood trauma has its hold on Harris Malden: he has no facial hair, so to compensate, he draws a mustache or beard on his face every morning, and he won't leave his neighborhood. His younger brother, Melvin, his best friend Paul, who lives next door, Paul's grandmother, and the entire neighborhood play along. But at the party for his 25th birthday, Paul's new girlfriend Susan points out to Harris that his mustache is a fake. This causes a crisis in Harris and threatens the friendship with Paul. Meanwhile, Melvin is trying to break into TV commercials. Hair, honesty, growing up, and moving on challenge each character and each relationship. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Witty, hilarious, must-see film!
14 December 2008 | by xcheckeredstarsSee all my reviews

Happy Birthday Harris Malden is a wonderful film. I saw the movie screened in my home town, and will definitely end up buying it to watch over again at home. Better than most Hollywood comedies by far. If you find The Office funny, you'll almost definitely like this. It keeps the audience laughing and engaged. The characters are unique, but also familiar--It's easy to find a bit of yourself in each. The acting was spot-on, fresh, and entertaining. I recommend this movie to anyone looking for the kind of laughs you hear among friends. Funny, clever, and easy to relate to, this movie speaks for itself. You really need to see what it's all about!
