Best Man Down is an American film written and directed by Ted Koland. The film was primarily shot in the Twin Cities and premiered in the fall of 2012 at The Hamptons International Film Festival under the original title "LUMPY." The film was also chosen to close the Twin Cities Film Fest in October of 2012 and was the black tie gala screening for the Catalina Film Festival in September of 2013. It was released theatrically in the United States by Magnolia Pictures on November 8, 2013, but had primary distribution through digital channels.The film features a rare dramatic performance by Justin Long and introduces Addison Timlin in her first starring role in a feature. Although the film is technically a "dramedy," for commercial reasons Magnolia released the film as a comedy, which hurt reviews.A newlywed couple cancels their honeymoon and returns to the snowy Midwest to make the funeral arrangements for their best man, who died unexpectedly after their ceremony.Minnesotans Scott (Justin Long) and his bride Kristin (Jess Weixler) are having their wedding in Phoenix. During the wedding, Kristin is put off by the obnoxious behavior of Scott's best man Lumpy (Tyler Labine). Lumpy gets extremely drunk and more annoying to the guests until he is cut off from the bar by Scott. Returning to his hotel room, Lumpy continues drinking and carrying on until he accidentally falls and cracks his skull before passing out. He awakens a short time later disoriented and bleeding, and gets himself locked out of the hotel. Wandering into the brush, Lumpy passes out and dies on top of a cactus. He is found the next morning and Scott and Kristen are informed. Since Lumpy was his best friend, Scott feels it is his duty to arrange for Lumpy to be returned to Minnesota for a funeral. Kristen is upset that her honeymoon will be postponed but she supports Scott in his decision. After arranging transport for the body, they return to Minneapolis to contact Lumpy's friends and plan the funeral.
