A FEW BEST MEN is a substandard combination of The Hangover and Meet the Parents. In pretty much every scene, this movie tries really, really hard to mine laughs out of being crass. And they go to some pretty staggering lengths to make this happen. There's Olivia Newton-John pretending to be out of her mind on cocaine, for instance, and there's one of the lead characters sticking his hand up the backside of a ram to retrieve the drugs the ram ate. But for all these truly insane strivings, none of it is all that funny. Rather, it comes off as trite and predictable. And without much that's relatively normal to counterbalance the craziness, the humor falls flat and quickly grows tiresome.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
