Movie Review – Men

Read Time:2 Minute, 21 Second


I saw Men last night. It’s been twelve hours since I was sitting in my seat and I’m still confused by what I saw. I was hoping for an epiphany overnight but alas, I’m still scratching my head.

It’s at this point in my review I would like to give a shout-out to the most brilliant man I’ve ever known. My brother, the creator of RunPee and an overall great guy. He added a new feature to our grading system. Instead of just A through F; we now have a WTF option. I’m absolutely, one hundred percent going to click that option today.

Towards the end of the movie, the last twenty minutes in fact, I leaned over and asked my husband if he had perhaps slipped acid or LSD in my dinner or drink. These were some of the craziest, messed up, brain-bending scenes I’ve ever witnessed, and I’ve been around the block a time or two.

I don’t want to ruin the surprise but I will let you know… You’re going to see some male anatomy up close and very personal. Like, in your face here I am, what’s that? You can’t see well enough? Here, let me zoom in more.

The first half of the movie is saturated with amazing cinematography. So much so that I feel they overdid it. At one point I’m watching and I’m thinking to myself, “Wow that’s a great shot, then another and another.” Finally, my brain said, “Now they’re just showing off.” I was really excited when I read a few other reviews that stated the same thing. They solidified my thoughts.

I honestly can’t figure out if it was great or if it killed off a bunch of my greatly needed brain cells. (Don’t forget I’ve been around the block a time or two, I’ve lived to the extreme) I can fully state, that they stumped me.

I can’t figure out if I would recommend this movie, I’m curious what you guys would think, but I don’t want to make anyone mad. So if you decide to see it, please comment, I would really like to hear your take on Men.

Grade: WTF

About The Peetimes: This movie is a trip. I’d recommend the 1st Peetime. The movie is a slow starter; you can stretch your legs or whatever to make it through the last hour of pure weirdness.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Men.

    Sometimes I love it when there’s a tragically bad movie like this, so we get these funny reviews.

    Well, it was an A24 production! All they do is weird, it seems but then again, weird writers and directors need jobs too! Lol

  • Troy

    It’s not “tragically bad” at all. I think even the reviewer would say that. It just had an incredibly bizarre last 30 minutes. I would agree with the reviewer that the first half had a lot of great shots and suspense in it. My $0.02.
