Critic Reviews

  1. 30
    These stereotypes (the befuddled one, the needy one, the sexist pig) hardly make for the most engaging cast of characters.
  2. 25
    This is yet another terrible WB sitcom that never should have been made.

    [Bruckheimer's] latest dud. [17 Mar 2006, p.109]
  4. "Modern Men" is a waste of money, time and only an elder generation of talent.
  5. 10
    A live-action version of Beavis & Butthead, except with a cast that's considerably less life-like, Modern Men is from the Guys Are Loathsome Pigs And Chicks Must Civilize Them genre that produced Men Behaving Badly, Champs and a bunch of other unwatched and unremembered shows, of which this will soon be one.
  6. One of the most flat-footed sitcoms of the year.
  7. The show suffers from a surfeit of cliched sex jokes and morning-after doldrums.
  8. This formulaic, hard-to-swallow concoction of glib writing and off-putting characters neither enhances the credits of its cast nor the reputation of Jerry Bruckheimer when it comes to TV comedy.
  9. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry
    "Modern Men" actually leaves you hoping [Bruckheimer] will revert to bigscreen form and blow something up.
  10. 10
    It is so mediocre it's almost fascinating to behold, ''almost" being the operative word.
  11. It's stupid and annoying and a retread of countless other stupid and annoying, totally unoriginal WB sitcoms.
