  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.

    While "Men" may have the nutritional equivalent of stick gum, there's some genuine charm here along with a surprisingly seasoned and talented cast.

    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.
  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.

    "Modern Men" actually leaves you hoping [Bruckheimer] will revert to bigscreen form and blow something up.
  7. It's stupid and annoying and a retread of countless other stupid and annoying, totally unoriginal WB sitcoms.

    Total rubbish - totally agree with some reviews that state another WB 'comedy' that never should have been made.
