Crazy Credits

Head-shots of the main male characters, the members of The Men's Club, are part of the letters that make up the title screen (e.g. Harvey Keitel appears within the "T" and Roy Scheider appears within the "H", etc.). Also, as their headshot appears, their character names and occupations are given. The female characters are credited under one of two categories, "Wives and Girlfriends" or "The House of Affections". The title "THE MEN'S CLUB" remains on the screen until the last credit, "Directed by Peter Medak", is given. See more »

Not bad at all
19 November 2001 | by (Miami, Fl.) – See all my reviews

This movie usually gets ripped to shreds by a lot of people. Given the offensive nature of some of the material, it's understandable. But truthfully, I enjoyed watching this movie because I really enjoyed watching this intriguing cast work together.

I first rented this movie because I couldn't believe what a cool cast was involved: Roy Scheider, Harvey Keitel, Frank Langella, Richard Jordan, and Treat Williams to name a few. Stockard Channing and Jennifer Jason Leigh also have supporting roles here, but it's basically the guys' show.

The movie is broken down like this: It introduces the characters, it shows the group of actors talking about their personal lives in a therapy type sitting at one of the character's house. And it all culminates at "The House of Affections" (you can figure out what that is).

What can I say, despite the fact that these characters often talk and act like jerks, I still enjoyed watching the cast work and even found a lot of it funny.

Having seen it several times, I can say it could've been edited much more tightly to convey its somewhat diluded message. But still, I enjoyed it and I think it's worth a rent for that cast alone. Just don't throw tomatoes at me if you happen to be offended. Call it a "guilty pleasure".
