The American version was utterly horrible
11 April 2004 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

So horrible, in fact, that the UK version probably changed it's name to "British Men Behaving Badly" so no one would confuse the hilarious version with the wretched American one starring (of all people) SNL's Rob Schneider and Ron Eldard (who was much better in "Sleepers").

The UK version stars Martin Clunes ("Shakespeare in Love", "Saving Grace", and the voice of Kipper) and Leslie Ash (who's had some atrocious plastic surgery since- she doesn't even look like herself anymore). Watching Clunes and Morrisey fumble around through bachelorhood is hysterical, since you wouldn't believe some of the things they do to cover their tracks from their girlfriends (who, of course, already know what they're up to). Great show. Too bad NBC insists on doing their own versions of Brit comedies- remember the debacle that was the American "Coupling"? Ugh. Leave it to the pros, guys.
