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

Grows more tedious the longer it's on the screen.

A waste of space.

The Ladies Man joins the crop of terrible movies based on Saturday Night Live skits, and offers serious competition for a title as the worst.

A dumb movie.

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

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

Pointless, sporadically funny exercise.

As the plot points arrive, they're all stretched to the max. Even the film's most unexpected bit ... goes on and on and on.

80 minutes of comic mistiming and missed opportunities.

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

One more case of a winning SNL character tamed by the wan, fizzled farce around him.

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

The movie overstays its welcome merely by a factor of approximately eight.

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.

Another cheesy, overdrawn and witless Saturday Night Live takeoff.
