Movie Info

The plot of the made-for-cable Women vs. Men sounds like something from Laurel and Hardy. A pair of married businessmen, Michael (Joe Mantegna) and Bruce (Paul Reiser), are being driven crazy by their respective wives, Dana (Christine Lahti) and Brita (Glenne Headley). No matter how hard they try, neither Michael nor Bruce can please their "premenopausal" spouses, who fly off the handle at the slightest provocation -- or sometimes, with no provocation at all. Confused and desperate, the heroes head to a gentleman's club (read: striptease joint) to relax in the company of women who are neither threatening nor demanding. It's all relatively innocent, of course, but that's not what Dana thinks when she follows her husband and sees the two men being entertained by an energetic lap dancer. Thus, when the boys get home, they got a lot of 'splainin' to do to their outraged wives. Originally titled Oooph!, Women vs. Men first aired August 4, 2002, over the Showtime cable network.

Critic Reviews for Women vs. Men

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

I am sorry to say that the executive producers of this cough medicine include Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, who used to know better, although Chazz Palminteri is not a bad director.
