The Ladies Man is pointless and should never have been made. But check your brain at the door and it almost stacks up to a snifter of Courvoisier and a handful of butt.

A cheap and forgettable romp which is unlikely to trouble filmgoers for long before finding a more suitable home down your local video store.

It's fairly forgettable stuff, but still very enjoyable, and suggests Meadows could be a name to watch.

It is extremely funny and wonderfully sweet, although with quite a raunchy brand of humor.

For what it is, a 90-minute spinoff of a Saturday Night Live sketch, Reginald Hudlin's film The Ladies Man is not bad.

It's a guilty pleasure -- but save it for a bargain matinee.

Dumb -- SNL skits don't work as movies.

Another Saturday Night Live sketch character tries, futilely, to stretch to feature-length proportion...

The director wants his film to be as smooth and as infectious as the funkadelic music he highlights throughout, but a string of bad decisions prevents that from happening.

Just when you thought they couldn't get worse, Saturday Night Live-based movies hit a new low.

After I swallowed my disbelief and gave my critical faculties a break, yeah, I was tickled every 40 minutes or so.

Lorne Michæls has crapped out another one that is only worth catching when it finally makes its way to cable.

...Hampered as much by the film's third-rate script as Meadows's own weakness as an actor.

Used to be Halloween was the scariest event each October. Recently, the most horrifying thing is the release of another comedy based on a Saturday Night Live sketch.

Any criticism of a film like The Ladies Man is essentially moot.
