I watched this movie based on the excellent reviews it received. The movie is so horrible it is hillarious! I don't even know how it is possible that so much action could happen in a movie, and yet the movie still managed to be boring. I haven't seen too many movies worse than this one. The plot is ridiculous, the characters are not convincing, and, by the end, I didn't care what happened to anyone in the movie. It's only entertainment value was afterward when my husband and I made fun of how bad it was.

"BEST MEN surprised me very much; I wasn't expecting such a delightful, if a little bit depressing, movie. Directed by Tamra Davis with a keen eye on characterization and humor, this movie is one of those you smile most of the time, and have a good time with its surreal and zany plot.
Luke Wilson plays Jesse, a convict getting out of prison after a theft, and who is getting married to his sweetheart, Hope (Drew Barrymore). Along for the ride are his best friends (Dean Cain as a former Green Beret, who is gay; Mitchell Whitfield as the lawyer Saul, who was Wilson's lawyer; Andy Dick as the nerdy Teddy, who is in a bad marriage; and Sean Patrick Flannery, who plays Billy and is secretly the philanthropic bank robber known as Hamlet because he spouts off lines from the play when he robs the banks. Billy doesn't tell his buddies that he's planning on robbing a bank before the wedding, but one thing leads to another and all the men are holed up in the bank with the local sheriff (Fred Ward) who also happens to be Billy's father! Soon, the inevitably nasty FBI comes in, headed by the sadistic and cold agent, played with malevolent glee by the durable and dependable Raymond J. Barry (Dead Man Walking, The Chamber).
The movie moves from some very humorous scenes to a devastating finale. This dramedy works because the performances are top notch and the script while manipulative is honest. Brad Dourif gives one of his best performances since "Cuckoo's Nest" as the mentally challenged Vietnam vet. Fred Ward, Dean Cain, Sean Patrick Flannery and Mitchell Whitfield are also excellent. It's the best work I've seen Cain do.
The movie entertained me immensely, and I would recommend it to audiences who enjoy a dramatic comedy! Or is it a comic drama?

"This movie has it all. Exploration of relationships, platonic and romantic, self-examination, character study, comedy of folly, and all without being heavy-handed or boring. All the performances are top-drawer and each character has something to offer which is great and rare, making this truely and ensemble piece. Dean Cain's performance is especially captivating, but not so much that it fails the mix. You like and care about each one of the characters, warts and all. I would recommend this movie to anyone, because I think anyone regardless of taste preferences would find something to love about this movie. Definately worth the look."
