The Extra Man
(directors: Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini; 2010)
by Anthony Lane
A precious youth named Louis Ives (Paul Dano), fired from his teaching position after an unfortunate incident with a brassiere, arrives in Manhattan and finds lodgings with Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a rambunctious bachelor of stout, unshakable beliefs and unsavory personal habits. (He applies boot polish to his ankles to ward off fleas and compensate for a lack of socks.) The story is adapted from the novel by Jonathan Ames, and there is no doubt that Harrison retains the flavor of a literary conceit: the Falstaffian throwback, with a touch of Shaw´s Professor Higgins, as rich in charisma as he is poor in cash. There is even a ham-fisted attempt, at the start, to present Ives as a modern Nick Carraway, preparing the way for a figure of Gatsbyish splendor. Without the comic skill and dedicated gusto of Kline, the movie, directed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman, would collapse for sure; it certainly founders when Harrison leaves town and we are expected to take an interest in the erotic plight of his protégé. This meshing of perversity and Old World innocence doesn´t work, and you can sense most of the actorseven John C. Reilly, in the role of a vocally challenged neighborstraining to keep up the basic level of eccentricity. The most measured and melancholic performance comes from Patti D´Arbanville, as a dominatrix who means no harm.
