The Misandrists mounts a memorably gonzo assault on the patriarchy -- one whose wild ambition and outré aesthetic are often enough to cover for its uneven execution.

At times, it seems like a parody of itself but manages to beguile while it sermonizes.
Director Bruce LaBruce tries hard to be the next John Waters, but can't even top D.E.B.S..
"The Misandrists" is a bad taste manifesto with an extreme feminist agenda.
Clever, yes. But its slow execution and cardboard acting doesn't play nice.
The Misandrists presents an unusual atmosphere, one mainstream cinema can not even conceive of, let alone get on a screen.
Mr. LaBruce utilizes camp, that unifying language of queer cinema, to undermine the credos of trans-exclusionary radical feminism.
The Misandrists is supposed to be a send-up of radical feminism, but it only occasionally shows any understanding of feminist thinking, and the film isn't funny for a second.
The Misandrists walks dangerously close to 'respectability' at times - [Bruce's] aesthetic has cleaner lines, crisper framing, story structure that veers uncharacteristically towards (dare I say it) conventional.
The blend of comedy, horror and social statement, while sometimes exciting, is too often a muddy mix.
The film has countless opportunities to go wrong... but it mostly works.
For LaBruce fans and fearless curiosity seekers only.
LaBruce cuts through the pretense of recent mainstream-movie sexuality.
