Ordinary Guy tells the story of Alex and his roommate, Clark, two twenty-something friends sharing the same apartment in the City. Alex has been dating the same girl for four years, but she is tired of waiting – tired of waiting for Alex to grow up and take his own life seriously, let alone their relationship.
After a night of drinking with friends, Alex wakes up in his disheveled and beer bottle-strewn apartment, hung over and not remembering what he may have said to his girlfriend the night before. The only thing he knows for certain is that he screwed up, yet again. His worst fears are soon confirmed when she breaks up with him later that evening, having had enough of his ambivalence, hesitation, and downright immaturity.
Unbeknownst to Alex, while his girlfriend has become ever-more exasperated with his antics, she has also drawn closer to Clark, ultimately getting together with him the night of the party. Oblivious to the seriousness of the problems with his relationship, unaware of her budding relationship with Clark, and clueless to the fact that Clark is also a super hero, Alex sets out to reverse his wrongs of the previous four years. Impulsively. Alex decides to buy an engagement ring and propose to his now ex-girlfriend over a romantic dinner. The stage is set for some surprising revelations and disastrous results.
Yes, at the core of this story is Superman, but its focus takes on a totally different stylistic and narrative approach. On the one hand, it’s a story about relationships, a love story. It’s a story about growing up, about taking on the responsibilities and commitments of adulthood, and about learning to say goodbye to the more carefree days of youth. On the other hand, it’s a more intimate and personal look into Clark Kent’s everyday life and how his desires and relationships effect his decisions and the choices of those around him. And how those decisions can trigger an unexpected and surprising chain of events. It’s a telling of the story that asks the question of just how willing to change Alex really is – and just how human Clark really is. Who is the real Ordinary Guy? Clark? Or Alex?
