Watching this gives new meaning the phrase 'cultural cringe'.
New director Mark Lamprell (Goddess) does a decent job stringing out obvious jokes and keeping the cast in comic motion, but the film is episodic and increasingly predictable.
A Few Best Men (2012), a woefully unfunny Australian / British co-pro farce, didn't need a sequel, and A Few Less Men rises to the occasion by being completely and utterly redundant.
A decade on, the jokes are really starting to decompose.
Every moment overstays its welcome.
Anyone with an aversion to jokes about farts or penises should steer clear of this consistently silly, defiantly enjoyable low-brow Aussie comedy. All else will enjoy the film's breezy lack of pretense, love of cheap gags and bursts of slapstick.
Though lavishly produced, the film is a pale shadow of its predecessor.
A Few Less Men is a throwback of a film, and not in a good way; it's messy rather than scrappy, and it just ends.
This is recycled comedy for a generation raised on much-raunchier R-rated American fare from Seth McFarlane and Judd Apatow -- and nowhere near as sharp.
Nobody in their right mind could have wished for a sequel to the awful 2011 Australian comedy A Few Best Men. Nevertheless, it still comes as a shock to witness how wrong this moronically mucky follow-up gets it from start to finish.
Craig's screenplay ... underlines the you're-supposed-to-laugh-here bits up to and including delivery, imbuing the film with an almost procedural quality: more about ticking boxes than tickling the funny bone.
"A Few Less Men" is a farce, and makes no pretence about it.
