Not bad enough to qualify as a memorable dud, multinational production nonetheless misses mark on every level.

It all feels like a Monty Python sketch gone horribly wrong.

What we have here isn't a disaster, exactly, but a very handsomely produced let-down.

Not only does LeBlanc make one spectacularly ugly-looking broad, but he appears miserable throughout as he swaggers through his scenes.

I can imagine this movie as a b&w British comedy, circa 1960, with Peter Sellers, Kenneth Williams, et al., but at this time, with this cast, this movie is hopeless.

There are cheesy backdrops, ridiculous action sequences, and many tired jokes about men in heels.

Let's hope -- shall we? -- that the 'true story' by which All the Queen's Men is allegedly "inspired" was a lot funnier and more deftly enacted than what's been cobbled together onscreen.

Jaw-droppingly superficial, straining to get by on humor that is not even as daring as John Ritter's glory days on Three's Company.

This one aims for the toilet and scores a direct hit.

It seems just a long, convoluted ploy to get men into drag -- period drag, no less.

Bad in such a bizarre way that it's almost worth seeing, if only to witness the crazy confluence of purpose and taste.

A graceless, witless attempt at mating Some Like It Hot with the WWII espionage thriller.
