Donal Lardner Ward,
Because of his salacious language, late-night radio advice-show host Leon Phelps, along with his sweet and loyal producer Julie, is fired from his Chicago gig. They can't find another job. About that time, two things happen: he gets a letter from a wealthy former lover who offers to take care of him (but she doesn't sign her real name, so Leon, an inveterate Casanova, has no idea who she is), and a group of angry cuckolds, all of whom have surprised their wives in flagrante delicto with Leon (who has a distinctive tattoo on his booty), are closing in, armed and dangerous. Can he find the sugar mommy and escape the wrath of the mob of husbands? What about Julie? Written by
The Saturday Night Live character Leon "Ladies Man" Phelps (Tim Meadows) gets a big screen treatment.
Of all the "Saturday Night Live" adaptations, this is not the best. But, luckily, it is far from the worst. In fact, if you just sit back and enjoy it, you might even laugh a little. This is not clever, witty or intelligent humor... but it can still bring a smile. Tim Meadows is an underrated comedian, as evidenced a bit here and even more in "Mean Girls".
We get some good cameos and supporting cast. Billy Dee Williams is excellent, and it is nice to see him in a slick role, ready to serve up some Colt 45. And we have Will Ferrell singing in a most amusing manner... alongside the guy from "There's Something About Mary". Best scene of the movie?
