The Lonely Guy is a 1984 comedy film directed by Arthur Hiller and starring Steve Martin, Charles Grodin, and Judith Ivey. The film is based on the book The Lonely Guy's Book of Life by Bruce Jay Friedman. The movie tells the story of Larry (Steve Martin), a writer who gets dumped by his girlfriend on his birthday. He feels lonely and lost in the big city, trying to find his place in the world. He decides to write a book about his experiences, which leads to his meeting Warren (Charles Grodin), a fellow lonely guy who becomes his friend.

Together they try to find ways to meet women, but they are not very successful. Larry falls in love with Iris (Judith Ivey), a woman he meets in a supermarket, but she is already seeing someone else. Meanwhile, Warren starts dating a woman who only wants to see him in hotels.
