Is It Any Good?

It's a shame when great comic actors are given limp material to work with, and that's the case here, with four fine actors playing tired horndogs who wouldn't be out of place in a teen sex comedy from the '80s. Really, all these guys, who range from their mid-30s to their 50s, are all going out to clubs? And twentysomething women are giving them attention and even going home with them? C'mon. Though the viewer can easily believe that a divorced man would seek to soothe his battered heart with some female company, are men of these ages likely to both seek and find these partners in a dance club frequented by women who look barely old enough to drink?

It all just feels unrealistic, yet not wacky enough to reach levels of satiric absurdity. And so WE ARE MEN floats in some middle ground, where the audience can recognize that various scenarios are supposed to be hilarious, and yet they're not laughing. There is great comedy to be found in the pain of divorce and reluctant singlehood, but this isn't it.
