Downey at least seems to be having fun, but the rest of the cast runs the gamut from bland (Eastwood, León) to downright awful (Schiffer, Baldwin).

Writer-director George Haas' debut feature offers nothing as it strains to be funny and provocative.

Top Critic

An inept farce with the mentality of a tittering 15-year-old boy peering under the bedcovers with a flashlight.

This movie is not merely bad, but incompetent. I get tapes in the mail from 10th graders that are better made than this.

A movie that operates on a level of such staggering ineptitude that its very existence is offensive.

Audience Reviews for Friends & Lovers

For the most part it's a completely worthless movie, but it does contain the complete and utter brilliance of RDJ as Hans. His character is amazing and one of the most hilarious and outrageous bit performances of all time. His nutball German accent and frosted hair is unforgettable. It's a shame the movie couldn't have revolved around him, that would have been something to see. Sadly, this movie is haunted by Stephen Baldwin and an ensemble cast that is anything but good.

Flimsy friends flic. Only redeeming point is the German ski instructor played over the top by Robert Downey, Jr. His attempts using karmic energy to get the girl are hilarious.

I find this movie very amusing everytime i see it. It has a great cast including a small hilarious role by Robert Downey Jr. Stephen Baldwin's wannabe lady's man charcter is memorable but all together its a team effort that makes this movie enjoyable. Def worth watching if you get a chance.
