35 Hilarious Episodes, Including 7 Never Seen On TV! — Want to know what "real men" are like? Best friends and roommates, Kevin (Ron Eldard, E.R.) and Jamie (Rob Schneider, Deuce Bigelow) are devoted to prolonging their a... more »dolescence. Kevin's girlfriend, Sarah (Justine Bateman, Family Ties), is determined to civilize Kevin, but his bad-boy charisma teamed with Jamie's immoral support are hard to fight.
In the irreverent sitcom's second (and final) season, Jamie takes on a new roommate, Steve (Ken Marino, Veronica Mars), who's equally keen on reclaiming that "boyish charm."
Based on the hit British series, NBC's Men Behaving Badly was originally broadcast from 1996 to 1997. It pushed the boundaries of sitcom humor to all new extremes, promising 22 full minutes of laughter in every episode!« less

Ranks with Married . . . With Children as the funniest shows ever aired on television. The first season is nonstop madness: Rob Schneider is off-the-chain in every episode; Justine Bateman is hilarious with her snide, sarcastic comments bounce off her boyfriend; Ronn Eldard is perfect as the guy with responsibilities who doesn't want to grow up. Justine Bateman appeared in all but the final episode of Season One. Ron Eldard finished the season and was in the Season Two opener. Except for Schneider's antics and his blonde love interest across the hall, Season Two is disappointing. Steven Miner, Eldard's replacement, is not up to the challenge. It's painful when you tell an actor is, well, acting. He doesn't deliver the funny lines with the finesse and conviction Eldard did. But this set is worth having for the first season and Schneider. If the original cast had finished out the series I'd give it 5 stars instead of 4.
Funny pre-Deuce Schneider comedy hits a triple off the wall.

"I've been waiting for this comedy to be released on DVD for quite some time. Several years ago, I heard of it's impending release, only to find out it was the British Men Behaving Badly show. I was disappointed, to say the least. I was 16 when this show was on, but remember watching it every week. I also enjoyed Drew Carey and a Fred Savage-led show called "Working".
This show was basically the bachelor roommate that technically had been done several times before with varying degrees of results. The comedy was crude (especially for that period), but funny. One bit I remember, was when Jamie (Schneider's character), not finding any coffee filters, uses his underwear to make him morning coffee. Stupid, yes. Funny, definitely. Ron Eldard, played his buddy Kevin and Justine Bateman played Sarah.
The reason the show only gets 4 stars: Probably due to either lack of faith, lack of money, or lack of ratings (due to going up against The Cosby Show), Bateman and Eldard took off leaving Schneider carrying the comedic load with some less funny characters. The show was yanked off the air early in its second season. The good news with this DVD release, is the addition of 7!! never-before-seen episodes from season 2. Now I'm not sure if that's good or bad due to the quality of acting, but still a joy nonetheless. I will be purchasing this one and will laugh my [...] off. Cheers!"
One of the funniest shows ever!!

"This show was one of the funniest shows ever!! I have a VHS tape of a few episodes and I'm very happy to see a DVD coming out. I've been checking around for a few years to see if I could get my hands on something like this!!! It was a shame that the cast could not get along. The first season was so funny. The second season bombed, I stopped watching after the first couple episodes. This DVD is definitely worth it!!!! "
I love Rob Schneider!

"I totally love this show and was mad as h---! when it was taken off.Why do studios put shows up against high rated shows on other networks is beyond me.Especially when they are starting out. Rob has some of the best comedic ablility in the business.It surely showed in this show and in all the movies he's done. I hope he looks for another venue someday in tv, but am glad he is entertaining us in the movies.Thank so much for bring this show to DVD, I will definitely buy it. RB"
Great 1st Season, OK 2nd Season

"This show is genius and was one of my favorites. The characters and writing was hilarious. Rob Schnieder was the star of the show, but when Ron Eldard and Justine Bateman left the show after the first season he missed the great chemistry he had with them and the show suffered. The replacements didn't have the same talent level and it felt like Schnieder was trying too hard to make up for it.
"Jamie, let me ask you something, okay? If a couple, say like Sarah and I, have a cooling-off period. What does that mean?" "I'm sure it varies from relationship to relationship, but for me, it means you're shot out of a canon into a sea of FLESH." "Well, apparently, Sarah agrees with you.""
I love this show

"I used to watch this show when it was on the air and I loved it. I thought Rob Schneider and Ron Eldard did a great job and I was really sad when it got cancelled. It used to be my favorite show. I am so excited that it now on DVD and I'm really looking forward to watching it all over again.
This show is not for everyone and you really need to appreciate this type of comedy to get into it. I still remember some of the great lines from this show and wondered if it would ever be available. I just got the DVDs and since my husband has never seen it, I'm looking foward to introducing it to him."
