Quotes

[Solly is telling the men's group about he and his wife swapping partners]
Solly: I said let's switch partners. It was my idea, right? Ok. We did it. It wasn't the first time. Only this time, she was moaning with love.
Harold: Did it ruin your weekend?
Solly: It was terrible, man. I lost my erection.
[The group breaks out laughing]
Solly: I left and my wife comes running after, 'Solly! Solly Berliner!' She said, it's not her fault. It was my idea. I hit her, I said, that's my idea too!
[The group cracks up]

Crazy Credits

Head-shots of the main male characters, the members of The Men's Club, are part of the letters that make up the title screen (e.g. Harvey Keitel appears within the "T" and Roy Scheider appears within the "H", etc.). Also, as their headshot appears, their character names and occupations are given. The female characters are credited under one of two categories, "Wives and Girlfriends" or "The House of Affections". The title "THE MEN'S CLUB" remains on the screen until the last credit, "Directed by Peter Medak", is given. See more »

Appalling
4 September 2002 | by onepotato2See all my reviews

This movie is a bizarre mess. Long before Frank Langella wanders into camera range in women's make-up with a cigar, the blathering causes you to lose interest. Bewildering. Mind-numbing. Avoid this movie like the plague unless you are planning a triple feature with Showgirls and Battlefield Earth.
