Award-winning writer-director-actor Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan, She's The One with Jennifer Aniston) returns with Nice Guy Johnny, his most romantic comedy in years. Johnny (Matt Bush of Adventureland) is engaged to a girl who demands he drop his dream gig as a sports radio deejay and work for her dad in the cardboard box industry. But the bed-hopping, fun-loving Uncle Terry (Burns) has different plans and soon whisks away Johnny to the Hamptons for a lost weekend where his nephew can find some fun. Beautiful tennis pro Brooke (Kerry Bishe, giving what the Hollywood Reporter calls "a winning performance") soon tempts Johnny to serve up a little pleasure and figure out exactly what being a nice guy really means. Nice Guy Johnny shows Burns delivering another gem in the tradition of his heroes Woody Allen and Francois Truffaut.

Sure, she can be a little overbearing sometimes, but baby-faced Johnny Rizzo loves his fiancee Claire, and he made her a promise: by the time he's 25-years-old, he'll trade his current dream job as a local sports talk radio host (even if it is the 2 a.m. slot) for something that'll pay bigger bucks. And Johnny's nothing, if not a man of his word.
Now he's flying to New York to interview for some snoozeville job that Claire's well-to-do father set up. Enter Uncle Terry, who lives in New York, a rascally womanizer bent on turning a day in the Hamptons into a final fling for his nephew. Nice guy Johnny's not interested, of course, but then he meets the lovely Brooke.
