  1. "Modern Men" is funny, but it is actually all about role reversal, depicting an imaginary world in which young men are as deeply concerned about their love lives and future spouses as women are.

    "Modern Men" feels anything but, well, modern. But in its own goofy, good-natured retro way, this old-school comedy... generates some lighthearted, if predictable grins.

    While "Men" may have the nutritional equivalent of stick gum, there's some genuine charm here along with a surprisingly seasoned and talented cast.
  4. The problem with "Modern Men" is that the scenes between the guys and the life coach don't play.
  5. 40
    A show like this... doesn't ask a lot of its audience, or of itself. In that context, give the three leads credit: They display flashes of skill and even subtlety in depicting their one-dimensional characters.

    These stereotypes (the befuddled one, the needy one, the sexist pig) hardly make for the most engaging cast of characters.

    This is yet another terrible WB sitcom that never should have been made.

    [Bruckheimer's] latest dud. [17 Mar 2006, p.109]
  9. "Modern Men" is a waste of money, time and only an elder generation of talent.
  10. The show suffers from a surfeit of cliched sex jokes and morning-after doldrums.
  11. 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.
  12. One of the most flat-footed sitcoms of the year.

    "Modern Men" actually leaves you hoping [Bruckheimer] will revert to bigscreen form and blow something up.
  14. 10
    It is so mediocre it's almost fascinating to behold, ''almost" being the operative word.
  15. 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.
  16. It's stupid and annoying and a retread of countless other stupid and annoying, totally unoriginal WB sitcoms.
