The Answer Man (previously titled The Dream of the Romans and Arlen Faber) is a 2009 romantic comedy film written and directed by John Hindman with a cast headed by Jeff Daniels, Lauren Graham and Lou Taylor Pucci. Filming began on March 23, 2008 in Philadelphia[2] and ended in June 2008. The film premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.[3]


Everyone wants to meet Arlen Faber (Jeff Daniels), the world famous author of the best-selling spiritual book Me and God, but crotchety, disgruntled Arlen simply wants to be left alone, and so far he's been successful at keeping his identity a secret. But all that changes when troubled bookstore owner Kris Lucas (Lou Taylor Pucci) discovers his home address and barters books for Arlen's words of wisdom, and a back injury leads the reclusive writer to date chiropractor and overprotective single mother Elizabeth (Lauren Graham). As Arlen's relationships with his newfound friends grow, he must come to terms with his past and the realization that he doesn't hold all the answers.



The Answer Man received negative reviews. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 33 % based on reviews from 40 critics.[5]
