The Ladies Man Movie Review
I can say one thing about SNL movies. They usually suck. Sure, A Night at the Roxbury had about twenty minutes of hilarious moments, but the following sixty minutes sucked.
Tim Meadows brings his popular Ladies Man to the big screen in hopes of breaking the trend, and proves to be a little stronger than the competition. Note I said a little stronger.
Meadows plays Leon Phelps, a radio talk show host who is about as idiotic as they come when it comes to what women really want, yet he has no problem pleasing dozens of women across the city because he is, shall we say, gifted. Of course, when his dream girl of old calls him up saying that she wants to be with him, he sets out to find her... he just doesn't know who she is. At the same time, a group of men are searching for Phelps because he has slept with their wives, causing severe mental damage.
Honestly, I can't remember how much I enjoyed this movie. I forgot to write the review after I saw the movie over a month ago, and now all I can recall is the thought that The Ladies Man was a good one-time watch, but I wouldn't be interested in seeing it again.
Meadow's antics are pretty funny at times, as is some of the advice that he gives out over the radio, but then there are moments when the movie really drags. The group of men trying to kill him gets old after a while, and their musical numbers really aren't that entertaining. The Ladies Man is about an hour's worth of content spread out over an hour and a half, but that is more than can be said for other SNL movies.
The Ladies Man has a decent entertainment level, but when it comes time to rise to the occasion, it goes limp about halfway.
