Goofs

Even if we allow for a suspension of disbelief to move the story along, it must be noted that Nevada strictly regulates its casinos. In short, Michael would not have been allowed to lose so heavily, and Carlos's solution is completely illegal. In real life, Michael should have immediately gone to the police or to the Nevada State Gaming Control Board. See more »

Look at the Reviewers- You'll note a trend
8 September 2007 | by acustomerSee all my reviews

Firstly, I may well be slightly biased- because I really truly enjoyed this movie. However, seeing it with a score under 5- and then looking at the reviews, there is a notable trend. The good reviews are predominantly well punctuated and articulate, with such things as (gasp) accurate spelling and grammar. Conversely, most of the bad reviews tend to be short blurbs with not a capital letter to be found.

My take on this: Despite being a dumb comedy, Tomcats is to nuanced for the average consumer of dumb comedy. So, it's a smart-dumb comedy. The timing of jokes is impeccable, the pace is excellent, and the actual material is above average- with some of it even fresh! This leaves it in a bad place for reviews though- because it means a small segment of people love it, while big segments of the population (the pretentious smart and the uncultured dumb, we'll call them) will always pan this movie. So, if you're smarter than the average bear- but still appreciate dumb comedy romps, go for it- this one is a keeper.
