Movie Reviews

Living by your own rules
Linda C. Jennings | Chicago, ILLINOIS USA | 05/02/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I liked this movie, because here we have Stella living by her rules and feeling comfortable in her skin...she is not a pretender.. very honest..trying to make life smoother among the rough cuts and fearless to live her sexuality without the labels that men put on women for being sexual..It was a refreshing movie about a woman, singleness, and having the courage to set your own standards for living...I liked this movie."
Pointless and pretentious
Westley | Stuck in my head | 04/29/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This low budget film is a real bore. Sean Young plays a chef (who doesn't know how to cut vegetables) who is trying to "find herself" by experimenting with sex and relationships. She is torn between her older boss (John Heard) and a young politically active photographer (the very likeable Richard Hillman). This situation is not very compelling and the movie has nothing new to say. Sean does a pretty good job with the role; however, she is clearly at least ten years too old for such a role and tries to look younger by wearing pigtails and overalls, which is laughable at times. Unfortunately, much of the dialogue and several of the scenes are also unintentionally funny. The only positive aspect of the movie is the use of some great old jazz songs - too bad the soundtrack isn't available. Skip this movie."
Sean Young's lead role
D. Roberts | Battle Creek, Michigan United States | 10/23/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Usually the supporting actress, Sean Young takes the lead in MEN. The cover of the DVD is mis-leading. Looking at it, one would naturally think that her character is devious, callous and manipulating. This is not the case. Nor is the title of the film very suitable as I don't think it's about "men" at all.

Rather, it's about relationships. Think back in your life to one person with whom you enjoyed spending time with more than anyone else. The one person of the opposite gender who made you feel more alive & vibrant than anyone else. This may or may not be your spouse; all of us have different life stories.

This, I believe, is the crux of this film. The magical times in our life and the value we place on that one special person - even if it is now only a distant memory. In this terse life, there is nothing like being able to bond with someone whom we are enamoured with.

To be sure, this movie tells a rather bizarre story. Instead of being a femme fatale of some sort, Sean Young plays a woman who is in some ways a sort of catcher-in-the-rye to lost men. Be forewarned, the story kind of meanders a bit & I'm not altogether sure if all the scenes should have made it past the cutting room floor.

If you like Sean Young, you will likely enjoy this film. She does waltz around nude a few times, which was a nice bonus. If you're not one who gets into movies that border on the "experimental," this one might be best avoided."
