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.
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.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
