Two films about the havoc wreaked by the dude(s) standing beside the groom. The Italian film, The Best Man, is a slack love story in which the bride falls for the title character; the American one finds one guy (Flanery) robbing a bank en route to the ceremony. Men is a wan retread of Dog Day Afternoon (the thief recites Shakespeare during stickups and gives the booty to orphanages), but the occasional fusillade of bullets keeps slumber at bay.
