this is easily one of the worst movies I've ever seen, every single aspect about this movie complements how painful this is to endure as a viewer. terrible script, mediocre acting, 1970s porn music, (constantly playing), the only highlight was seeing the credits roll by!
Men Seeking Women is one of Will Farrell's earliest movies. He is only one of three main leads of the movie who all provide enough to make the movie worth a watch. The concept was simple, 3 friends make a bet that the first one of them to find and live with a girl for 3 months wins. This provides some funny dating moments but overall this film was not all that funny. It was more of a straight forward story about how each guy approached the bet differently and each had different results. I liked watching the success and failures of each guy but in the end it was only a very average film that did nothing special.
Saw it for free on youtube. Very good movie and I felt it deserves more recognition. I think if this movie came out after will ferrell became famous it would have been very successful. It does somewhat lag in being modern and is very outdated but I still liked it. I forgot what is was like to live in the 90s when everybody used house phones and pagers.
Okay so the acting is at times pretty cardboard and this shouldn't make your top list of Will Ferrell films... but it does have some classic one liners in there and is genuinely a pretty interesting plot to follow. Not because it surprises you with twists, turns and revelations, but because it's about three men looking for relationships who seem to only find women desperate for sex! This film would be far less engaging if the main characters were female.
Although the main hook of the movie is dumb and degrading to women, it's workable if the dialogue and set pieces were funny but I couldn't seek and laughs from this poor flick and to make it even worse the film starts out with a fart joke. The majority of the film is dead time showing the lead three's mishaps whilst either looking for or in a relationship which makes the narrative repetitive and way to obvious to predict. Among the dead time there is a lot of unexplained moments like the relevance of them being born on the same day amonst many others. It seems the film was sold heavily on the casting of Will Ferrel who disappointingly isn't cast in the lead role but in one of the supporting roles which is right in his league but he fails to deliver laughs which fits him into the film well.
This is an AWFUL movie. Most of the jokes completely miss the mark. The only reason to watch this is to see Will Ferrell's early work. He is literally the only thing that kept me from watching this movie.
Will Ferrell's first movie, but sadly it's not all classic Ferrell, although he does have a few good lines. The movie tries to be too serious when examing relatioships and therefore loses most of its comedy.
I can't believe how much I disliked this movie. I only watched it for Will Ferrell but even he couldn't save this film. I laughed once in the whole film, and that was actually at Will. It was just so disappointing. I don't recommend it.
