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 »
It's not that the ideas in this movie are so dumb, it's just that they are so unambiguously presented. You actually notice the drama getting more subtle and complex when the brothel madam starts talking through a doll. It's too bad, because Roy Scheider really tries to make something of his part. He must have been holding his breath between takes because he has the expression of a man performing a field autopsy. Paul Schrader should re-write this lurid chewathon for Jimmy Smits. There's an actor who can spin gold out of lint.
