    FLIPPIN’ HILLARIOUS, April 27, 2001

    I walked into the “Tomcats” expecting a really bad movie with a few laughs every once in a while. MAN WAS I WRONG!

    “Tomcats” is about a group of buddies who one day, after a wedding, make a little bet. They each place some money into a pot every year and the Tomcat who remains single the longest, gets all the money. Some years go buy and mostly every Tomcat is married except for two, Kyle (Jake Busey) a sex crazed maniac with a ton of cash to spend and a somewhat starving artist (Jerry O’Connel). Problems arrive at a casino and O’Connel’s charecter owes a group of mobsters around 50 thousand dollars. Now the only way to get his money is to marry up Kyle, the only one who stands in his way of the pot. But an even bigger problem occurs when the artist starts to fall for the girl he tries to set Kyle up with (Shannon Elizabeth).

    Throughout the entire film, many hillarious situatuions and scenes occur during the film. At times, I had to grab onto my stomach because I was laughing so hard. Though, every minute of this movie is hillarious, there are parts of the film you will remember more than others and some scenesyou will never forget for as long as you live (three little words, O’Connel’s date with a librarian and when Kyle gets testicular cancer).

    “Tomcats” is a great film with gaurenteed laughs that start from the beggining until the very end. All the acting is surprisingly good, especially from Busey and O’Connel. Unless you’re someone who doesn’t like to have fun, Tomcats is the ultiate film. TOMCATS ROCKS!

    Raunch At Its Hilarious BEST!!, April 11, 2003

    This review is from: Tomcats [VHS] (VHS Tape)

    Well at least I think so. Jerry O’Connell, most recently of “Kangaroo Jack” fame, is one of two buddies in a large group of male friends who have pooled money together betting who can remain single. Finally it is down to O’Connell, an artist with some scruples, and his friend Kyle who has none.

    During a trip to Las Vegas, O’Connell runs up a $51K gambling debt to a hilariously vicious, yet deadpan Bill Maher and his goons. Although there is enough in the jackpot to free O’Connell from reposession hell as Maher takes all he owns as collateral, he has even tougher odds of getting Kyle married, since he is a complete louse to all woman kind.

    In walks Shannon Elizabeth as a cop who once dated Kyle and was left with a role of quarters in the road for a cab after being deflowered and dumped. She was a bridesmaid at one of the many weddings attended by the bachelor gang as they all became married one by one. O’Connell falls in love when he meets Elizabeth, but to free his debt, ends up getting her married to Kyle, or DOES he? YOU have to see this and find out for yourself.

    While some are thumbing their nose at this film, I found it a scream. It was entertaining from start to finish, and lately, I find myself hitting the fast forward on many movies just to get through them. NOT “Tomcats”. Is it sexist? SURE! I am a woman, I can laugh at this, in fact I did, out loud many times. There are more laughs and plain old feel good fun here than most comedies I have seen in awhile. A dominatrix librarian and her grannie partner who lure unsuspecting men into their dungeon of discipline? A diseased testicle ending up rocketing around a hospital while chased down by O’Connell? A wildly graphic and surrealistic restaurant scene where Elizabeth gives birth at the table in front of a party of 15-20 earth mothers vigorously and unabashedly breast feeding? Well if this sounds in poor taste, that is because it is! Delightfully so! Do not listen to the uptight folks who slammed this, unless you too have no sense of humor. Man or woman, take this movie for what it is, GOOD DIRTY FUN…and bring a big bowl of popcorn put your feet up and get ready to laugh.
