Quotes

[Solly is telling the men's group about he and his wife swapping partners]
Solly: I said let's switch partners. It was my idea, right? Ok. We did it. It wasn't the first time. Only this time, she was moaning with love.
Harold: Did it ruin your weekend?
Solly: It was terrible, man. I lost my erection.
[The group breaks out laughing]
Solly: I left and my wife comes running after, 'Solly! Solly Berliner!' She said, it's not her fault. It was my idea. I hit her, I said, that's my idea too!
[The group cracks up]

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".

sad pathetic men in crazy messy movie
29 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

A group of men in Berkley form a men's club. Former baseball star Cavanaugh (Roy Scheider) is a hound dog cheating on his wife Sarah. He brings his family-man friend Berkley professor Phillip (David Dukes) into the group. Kramer (Richard Jordan) is a psychotherapist. Solly Berliner (Harvey Keitel) is a real estate broker cheating on his wife. Harold Canterbury (Frank Langella) is a senior partner in his law firm and his wife left him after finding herself. Paul (Craig Wasson) is a manager at an auto parts company. Terry (Treat Williams) is a single doctor. Kramer's wife Nancy (Stockard Channing) comes home to find the group trashing the place. She kicks the men out and they decide to go to a high class gentlemen's club. The club is run by Jo with her puppet. She introduces Harold to Teensy (Jennifer Jason Leigh).

The first half of the movie is a touchy feely inner-self of the Neanderthal man. Many of the men are various shades of the cave man. Then they go to the brothel and things get even weirder. It's insane and not in a good way. Unless you're itching to see Langella in crazy makeup.
