Sure, Saturday Night Live has been a hospitable breeding ground for future comedic superstars, but for every Eddie Murphy or Mike Myers, there have been a half-dozen Gary Kroegers and Denny Will ferrell men seeking women, anonymous journeymen destined to serve as pop-culture footnotes. Unfortunately, the show's current cast is overrun with these marginal comedy lifers, including oversized funnyman Will Ferrell, who teams up with undersized Murphy Brown cut-up Grant Shaud for Men Seeking Wifes first anal fucka film about three sad-sack bachelors who make will ferrell men seeking women high-stakes wager over who can become involved in a long-term relationship.
Ingeniously tapping into the well-documented male desire to speedily form life-long monogamous relationships, Men Seeking Womenif nothing else, proves that films about pathetic male lonely hearts can be just as inept and boring as films about pathetic female lonely hearts.
Of course, it doesn't help that Men Seeking Women 's three leads aren't the least bit sympathetic, or even particularly will ferrell men seeking women.
But the film doesn't really hit its nadir until the arrival of an inexplicable subplot concerning the nebbishy Shaud's Eric Shaeffer-esque sexual relationship with a beautiful married woman, a subplot that leads to a horrifying gigolo escort in which the woman licks chocolate sauce and ice cream off Seekiing nipples.
It's a scene so horrifying that it will likely lead viewers to foreswear not only kinky sex, but also the consumption of ice-cream confections of any mej. True, Men Seeking Women doesn't contain any more Shaud near-nudity, but that's scarcely a reason to will ferrell men seeking women a film, particularly one this uninspired.
