What does it mean to be a man? Comedian Ray Harrington has struggled with that question all of his life. Like many, he was raised by a single mother without any male influences to guide his awkward stumble into manhood. Now with a baby on the way, Ray realizes that before he can be a father, he needs to know what it means to be a man. Be A Man is a personal and heartwarming look at one man’s struggle to find his place in the world. Often laugh out loud funny, the film is wonderfully touching as Ray and his film crew welcome the viewer in as another friend on the journey of examining manliness and masculinity in modern culture.
Along the way, Ray asks for advice and help from fellow comedians and experts in their fields. Kyle Kinane, Bobby Kelly, Steve Rannazzisi, Doug Stanhope, and more all share their views on what it means to be a man. Ray steps into the ring to face 5 time world champion, Vinny Pazienza. He’ll also discover his signature drink, give himself a classic straight razor shave, hunt down his very rare dream car, and face a jury of women to find out if he can be the man that movies and television had always told him he should be.
Forces of Geek was honored to be one of the first outlets to review the film last year and it’s success at festivals and distribution on DVD will hopefully widen the audience that this film deserves.
