It’s a world where roundabouts are gripping, unusual mailboxes are hunted like prize game and the most commonplace becomes the most coveted. Though many of us may pass by these parts of life in a flash, the Dull Men’s Club indulges the curiosity of what appears at first glance to be rather uninteresting to the average person.

 

The result is a mild-mannered film with a comic touch that makes you want to have a beer with the men who say their greatest accomplishment is: “Remaining dull in spite of the ever-increasing pressures from advertising, the media, and elsewhere to change.”

Somewhat paradoxically, what makes these men special is their attachment to the ordinary.
