The one and only Steve Martin stars along with Charles Grodin and Tony Award winner Judith Ivey in a funny and poignant romance inspired by Bruce Jay Friedman's tongue-in-cheek survival manual. The Lonely Guy follows the progress of Larry (Steve Martin) and his buddy Warren (Charles Grodin) as they attempt to eke out a successful social life in the Big Apple. They're losers, until one day, Larry writes a book that turns loneliness into the ultimate love potion, and life is never the same! The film features performances by Steve Lawrence and Robyn Douglass with special cameos by Merv Griffin and Dr. Joyce Brothers.
