  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.
  3. 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.
  4. "Modern Men" is a waste of money, time and only an elder generation of talent.
  5. One of the most flat-footed sitcoms of the year.
  6. 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.
  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.
