MY MAN IS A LOSER isn't such a winner, though it does have something worthwhile to say about marriage despite its sexist cliches about making an effort and sticking to a commitment. (And Stamos is pretty steady, serving up his some authenticity behind the schmooze.) Husbands and wives are portrayed as living in enemy camps, with battle lines clearly drawn along gender lines.

Whatever happened to humans being complicated, hence the difficulties of relationships? Must everything be boiled down to male-female differences? Husbands complain about their sex lives and are jealous of their bachelor buddy's freedom (and endless stream of female conquests). Wives complain about their husbands' lack of interest in family life. Could these battles be any more cliched? Eventually they all realize that their relationships are important and need nurturing. "Men are stupid, women are crazy," is the way one character sums up the eternal battle of the sexes. In this film, that's pretty much as deep as it gets.

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.
