Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"After I swallowed my disbelief and gave my critical faculties a break, yeah, I was tickled every 40 minutes or so."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"One more case of a winning SNL character tamed by the wan, fizzled farce around him."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Dumb -- SNL skits don't work as movies."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Just when you thought they couldn't get worse, Saturday Night Live-based movies hit a new low."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A putrid mess...simultaneously vulgar and boring."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"80 minutes of comic mistiming and missed opportunities."
‑ Lawrence Terenzi, Mr. Showbiz
"Only ... fans of Meadows' anachronistic Ladies Man caricature are likely to have any interest in this slapped-together, unfunny movie."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Another Saturday Night Live sketch character tries, futilely, to stretch to feature-length proportion..."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Lorne Michæls has crapped out another one that is only worth catching when it finally makes its way to cable."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"...Hampered as much by the film's third-rate script as Meadows's own weakness as an actor."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Desperately unfunny."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A waste of space."
‑ Tom Keogh,
"The director wants his film to be as smooth and as infectious as the funkadelic music he highlights throughout, but a string of bad decisions prevents that from happening."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"The Ladies Man is a total dud."
‑ Susannah Breslin, Film Threat
"Used to be Halloween was the scariest event each October. Recently, the most horrifying thing is the release of another comedy based on a Saturday Night Live sketch."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
