Silly and crude but pretty darn funny
Daniel Jolley | Shelby, North Carolina USA | 09/23/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I came to appreciate this movie a little more after a second viewing. Sure, it's a really, really dumb movie, and Tim Meadows' Saturday Night Live character Leon Phelps, aka The Ladies' Man, is stretched just about as far as he can be without snapping, but there are laughs to be found here, and the film really isn't as raunchy as you might think. Leon Phelps is the perpetual 70s swinger who dispenses all of his wisdom in the ways of love on his own late night radio program. A lot of that wisdom involves some rather unsavory advice, most of it involving "da butt" in some fashion, and Leon soon finds himself out of work alongside his attractive producer Julie (Karyn Parsons, who turns in a pretty impressive performance). Unable to find a new radio job, Leon's troubles only increase when his womanizing ways make him the target of a group of men looking for the guy who seduced all their wives. SNL's Will Farrel turns in a particularly memorable performance as the ring leader of the group and a really, really devoted Greco-Roman wrestler whose wife somehow doesn't understand his need to get oiled up and practice wrestling day and night with his friend Bryan. With so much going on in his life, will Leon find the answer to all his money woes with a "Sweet Thing" from his past (if he can only remember which one of his former ladies she is), or will true love sneak up on him and make him a changed man? The Ladies' Man features some notable names in its cast list: e.g., Tiffani Amber-Thiessen, Julianne Moore (in an inexplicable little cameo), and the ultimate ladies' man himself, Billie Dee Williams. Billie Dee's presence lends a sense of class that is altogether missing without him, although he does play a prominent role in an unforgettable and hilarious practical joke of pretty crude proportions. When it comes right down to it, The Ladies' Man must be judged in terms of its comedic aspects, and I have to say I found the movie quite funny. If you found Tim Meadows' Ladies Man character on Saturday Night Live funny, odds are you will enjoy this movie."
The worst SNL spin-off so far

"I really tried to like this movie, but I could never get past about the 20 minute mark (I rented it on three different occasions). Tim Meadows' Leon Phelps is funny in small doses, but does not work in sustaining an entire movie."

"Leon Phelps, (Tim Meadows) the self proclaimed sex guru and woman extraordinare who hosts a Chicago radio show just giving advice on sex is in for it... A support group for the spouses and boyfriends of women he has cheated with has even been started and they are on a mission, to find the man they call "The Man With the Smiley Ass Tatoo." once they have accomplished this, supporting actor Lance DeLune (Will Ferell), olympic wrestler and apparently gay leader of the group, has a goal to rid Leon of his extremedies. This movie is absolutely hillarious, it depicts Leon and the troubles his on air obscenities get him into, such as being fired and fired once again and rejected and rejected and rejected from job after job after job. Leon and his beautiful assistant cannot seem to find work anywhere and furthermore, Leon is unable to pay for his houseboat which he has dubbed his "Skanktuary". But just when it seems like Leon has hist rock bottom, a miracle happens, he receives a letter from his "Sweet Thing" which is what he calls every woman, who says she is very rich and wants to run away with Leon because she so loved the times they shared together. The only problem is Leon has no idea who his sweet thing is and must set out on a quest to find her. If you love the SNL skit, you are positively sure to love this, but even if you have never seen the SNL skit, you are positively sure to love this; unless of course, you are among the few who hate crude and sexual humor... Then you will hate this. This film really does not have a deep plot, and this is good every once in a while. To relax and watch a funny, easy movie is, at times, much more fun than watching an academy award picture, AND THIS IS DEFINITLEY ONE OF THEM!!!!"
