An off-beat film that has some endearing moments
10 December 1999 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

"Men" is no blockbuster Hollywood film. Instead it's a character drama that revolves around Stella (Sean Young), a budding chef who likes cooking things up with men as much a she likes cooking up souffles. During the course of the film she beds a guy she sees through a shop window, the owner of the restaurant where she works, a fat drunk from Alabama and a spacy photographer (if that isn't redundant.) What's amazing is that through all this, you like her and respect her as a decent person, aided by Young's trademark off-center style. It's not for everyone, but if you like characters better than car crashes, give it a go.
