Screenwriter and costar Mike White brings an unsettling combination of puppylike eagerness and infantile wiles to his Chuck & Buck role as the developmentally arrested Buck, a young man whose obsession with his childhood best friend, Chuck (Weitz), is equal parts sunny nostalgia and erotic compulsion. This indie oddball’s prickly humor flies under the laugh-out-loud radar, but its psychosexual anxiety resonates long after the too-pat ending. B
