Movie Info

This romantic comedy in the vein of There's Something About Mary and American Pie concerns the story of Michael Delaney (Jerry O'Connell), a struggling cartoonist who makes a bet with seven buddies over who will be the last to marry. Several years later, the pot has boiled down to two: Michael, who is battling gambling debts in Las Vegas, and diehard bachelor Kyle Bremmer (Jake Busey), who is a self-proclaimed ladies' man. Michael tries to get Kyle to wed within 30 days in order to rescue

Laced with such rampant misogyny that the laughs stick in your throat.

In its mingling of horniness and disgust, Tomcats attains a convoluted cleverness.

This is 90 minutes of gags of the lowest order.

It brings the gross-out comedy genre to a new low.

Offers only tired jokes, grimace-worthy physical comedy and bad, bad acting.

Yet one more slice of American Pie-style outrageousness for and about guys with raging libidos and pinheads.

A parade of labored sex gags and bathroom humor.

Desperate is too kind a word. This isn't so much a movie as director Gregory Poirier's failed application to the Farrelly Brothers Country Club. Even those looking for T&A will be disappointed, unless Jerry O'Connell's hairy tuchus floats their boat.

December 2, 2010 Full Review Source:

Tomcats is a raunchy, rambunctious, crowd-pleasing film.

February 2, 2009 Full Review Source: Las Vegas CityLife

So what happens when everyone making a skin flick gets Puritanical about showing skin? A plot, that's what, and 'Tomcats' offers a yarn that's truly yawn-provoking.

Sin gracia, agresiva, misógina, aburrida y completamente prescindible.

May 7, 2002 Full Review Source: Moviola

Watching teenagers going through some of these situations seems normal; watching men in their late 20s going through them is obnoxiously abnormal.

There isn't a single laugh to be had ...

If you're like most of the human race and it takes more than a gross-out gag to tickle your funny bone, do yourself a favor and steer clear of this monstrosity of a movie.

May 3, 2001 Full Review Source:

Writer-director Gregory Poirier is bent on delivering the raunchiest good time he can come up with and pretty much succeeds.

It is a comic nadir, the stanky green crust caking the bottom of the well of titters.

Even if you enjoy 100 per cent leering, mean-spirited comedy, you won't find much to like here.

There should be another word for 'stupid' to describe this drooling Neanderthal non-comedy.

A morally reprehensible film about bad people behaving badly.

April 2, 2001 Full Review Source: PopMatters

Most of the jokes ... rely on the audience being as dumb as the movie is.

April 2, 2001 Full Review Source:

Full of manic comedy bits seemingly pilfered from the reject pile of the brothers Zucker and Farrelly.

What will come as a surprise ... is the astonishingly gross and thoroughly implausible lengths to which Poirier's script will go for a cheap laugh.

Audience Reviews for Tomcats

A pretty good cast line up for the time, most had been in a big hit around 2000. Similar to There's Something about Mary as 2 guys who vowed to stay single end up chasing the same girl. It has quite a bit of gross out gags, maybe a bit too much on the gross side! It has it's moments but they can be few and far between.

This is the motherload of all that is "Late Night" Comedies..and it almost pulled it off perfectly, but almost is only good in your dreams!
December 25, 2009

Super Reviewer

Its crass laughs but rarely do they work. Its tame compared to the likes of American Pie, and its never as offensive as it makes itself out.
