Adaptation of Dave Barry's best-selling book by the same name.
19 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film does a good job in adapting Dave Barry's satirical observations on the foibles of the male gender and creates a funny gem of an independent film. Although women would surely see the truth and humor in this film, men would also find it funny.

John Cleese, Dave Barry, and Dan Marino all give memorable performances in this film.

The tongue-in-cheek humor and the episodic skits are reminiscent of "Hollywood Shuffle."

Those familiar with Barry's many books will find the handling of this film true to his brand of humor.
