Though he's worth a chuckle in a sketch, neither Leon nor Meadows is interesting enough to build a movie around.

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

A few solid punch lines get lost amid the stupidity.

Only ... fans of Meadows' anachronistic Ladies Man caricature are likely to have any interest in this slapped-together, unfunny movie.

While Meadows is likable and often makes his lines a little funnier than they should be, the film is still chock-full of dreadfully, painfully, grossly unfunny moments.

Meadows takes the cheerfully lewd Leon Phelps to the big screen without the help of viagra in The Ladies Man.

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

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.

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.

This slight and uneven flick isn't the kind of thing you want to drop $8 on at the multiplex, but more an inspiration rental for six months from now when it's on the new releases shelf at your local video store.

It just seems to go on and on, never arriving at either a point or a satisfying conclusion.

The results are disconcertingly bland under Reginald Hudlin's direction.

Arguably the limpest film yet spun out from a Saturday Night Live sketch.

The movie is an exercise in futility: why pay for this droning hell when it's free and short and funnier every Saturday night?

In Phelps' own words, the tedious Ladies Man is a dirty, bus stop skank.

Maddening as taxes, as irritating and pointless as a cold.
