Storyline

"Knuckle Draggers" takes a realistic, but comic look at how the behaviors of men and women have evolved very little since the caveman times. When Ethan, the needy nice guy, is dumped by his fiancee, he asks his misogynist older brother Kyle to help him win her back. Kyle tries to teach Ethan how to act like "a real man" and to never put a woman on a pedestal. Repulsed by his brother's harsh views on how to treat women, Ethan ignores his advice and ventures out into the dating world, where he slowly realizes that everything Kyle says seems to be true.

If you liked Swingers, you're going to enjoy Alpha Males Experiment
30 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alpha Males Experiment is a unique romantic comedy that approaches things from the male point-of-view.

The story follows Ethan, an aspiring director who gets dumped by his hot fiancée because he couldn't provide her with the plush, stable life that her sorority friends were living. Desperate to get her back, he seeks help from his misogynist older brother Kyle, who gives Ethan a crash course on women and dating.

Disgusted by his brother's harsh views on how to treat women, Ethan ignores his advice and ventures out into the dating world, but he slowly realizes that everything Kyle says seems to be true.

Alpha Males Experiment is a mixture of Jon Favreau's Swingers, Edward Burns' The Brothers McMullen, and VH1′s The Pickup Artist. The result is a thought provoking movie that examines what modern couples want versus what they need, and how their needs haven't evolved much from those of our caveman ancestors.

I really enjoyed Alpha Males Experiment, and I highly recommend checking this movie out!
