Dull and pointless; even the sex scenes are dreary and cold.
26 February 2013 | by bigdave11243See all my reviews

A total waste of time. Sean Young may have been hot stuff once upon a time, and her character, Stella, seems to be determined to prove she's irresistible to all men of all ages, shapes, and sizes. But her long string of sexual "experiences" lack any real sizzle, just less-than-hot nudity and obviously faked ardor. Though Stella slides from one unappealing sexual partner to the next with no reservations and next to no provocation, she never really gets anywhere. It's all pointless and goes (dully) nowhere. There's a lot of talk about how free she is, but all she really is is aimless. Though she cooks a lot and talks about what she's cooking as if it's the ultimate in haute cuisine, what she perpetually whips up is, like her sex life, messy and over-rated and, ultimately, unappealing. Every time she is shown cooking, there seems to be a lot of flames and sloppy spillovers -- one supposes this is meant to parallel what she would like to think her sex life is like. But there is no real fire there, not even much steam. The stuff in her frying pan never looks really appetizing. Neither does she.

"Men" is also a total misleading title. There is not a real man in the entire lot of partners she takes on. It's all just a bunch of losers using each other for misguided -- or unguided -- gratification. Stella's "friends" are boozers and losers and abusers, but of course she is, too, and the best thing to say for the lot of them is that they deserve each other. Character development is zero; nobody grows up, never grows in any direction. Plot is nonexistent; a series of porn scenes does not make for anything resembling cinematic story-telling. And the characters (and the talk-talk-talk) become increasingly bizarre and sordid. All this makes the final true-love-and-heartbreak seem out-of-place, a parody of sorts.

All in all a totally dull and pointless something-or-other. Certainly it is not a movie worth watching.
