John Ritter Salute - Underrated Classic
12 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Today we lost one of Hollywood's true comedic talents in John Ritter. I write this review today in salute to him after his untimely passing.

Too me Real Men is one the best worst movies ever made. I have seen it multiple times and wish it would hit dvd asap. Ritter and Belushi hit the mark in this comedy team up. While many dislike like the movie because of its whacked out plot and choppy editing, this is what endears the movie to me. The plot is so far fetched and crazy you think that Ritter's character is just being set up for something else. Is he or isn't he, as with the crazy scenarios in the film: the clown fight, the cup of water trade, the spy lunch break, the PEN, the nail gun and so much more make this a total hoot. This a true example of John Ritter at his best.

Don't miss it.

Bottom Line: 7/10! RIP John Ritter
