Four guys sit around drinking beer and talking, trying to figure out the meaning of "the pompatus of love" (from the Steve Miller song "Joker") and analyzing their relationships with women. Written by
John Allison <email@example.com>
The title phrase was taken from two songs by Steve Miller; the mysterious word "pompatus" was originally spelled "pompitous" in the printed lyrics. But it originally comes from the Medallions' 1954 song "The Letter", written by Vernon Green when he was 14. Green explained in the 1990s that the word actually began with "puppet" and was a term he'd made up for "a secret paper-doll fantasy figure, who would be my everything and bear my children".

This movie is a victim of the post-"Diner" post-"Seinfeld" syndrome, in which inane conversation takes the place of true characterization. It's amusing at times, but ultimately leads nowhere - both the conversations and the movie. The Adrian Pasdar / Mia Sara / Paige Turco storyline was perhaps the most entertaining and had the most potential, but a movie like this is only as good as the worst bit of it. And everything about the Jon Cryer story is horrible - it should have been left out or at least given fourth place (instead of the most followed) subplot.
It's entertaining in its own way, I suppose. And it gets points for being funny and for some clever referencing of 50s and 60s TV shows. Watch "The Brothers McMullen" instead for a similar movie done better with less money.
