4.0 out of 5 stars More features and Widescreen please. Jan. 21 2004
By J.Gill
Format:DVD
Most folks missed this strange little comedy back in the 80's and it's distribution was scarce at best. After viewing it with college buddies back in the 90's I had to buy my copy at a used video store...for a buck. Ritter and Belushi are great together. Slapstick humor mixed with plain old off the wall comedic story telling makes this one of my favorite 'left of center' comedies. Neighborhood bullies, Russian spies, clown agents, pens from outer space, transexual family members, S&M mistresses, and a glass of water...add it up and you get 'Real Men'.
The DVD looks weak though. No widescreen? Just the trailer? Ok granted, a making of documentary might not be needed for this one, but at least give us a double layer disc so we can choose wide or full. I doubt there will be a special edition of this coming from MGM anytime soon, but It would be nice. I guess I should thank them for putting it out at all. However considering the cult following of this movie and our feelings on the matter, MGM should "try to be more sensative".

5.0 out of 5 stars John Ritter RULES! July 3 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of those movies that geeky film critics hated and the rest of us loved! Not much of a surprise though since the funniest movies are rarely appreciated. There are so many laughs in this film that there's no way you can watch it just once. Those who say the plot is weak miss the whole point. The plot is simply this: All life on Earth will end unless these two dorks deliver a glass of water to some Aliens. How much more plot do you need? John Ritter is one of the greatest comedic actors of all time and Belushi is in top form as well. A perfect cast all around. What's really fun about this movie is how the characters change. John Ritter starts off a whimp and turns into a tough guy just as Belushi changes from tough guy into a whimp! Check out the scene with John Ritter in the park when he attacks the clown. Classic! Or how about Belushi introducing Ritter to his dad (the dad that just got a sex change!) after Ritter makes out with him on the couch. A complete scream and completely original. Wasn't this soundtrack later used in My Cousin Vinny?

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Freaking Funny!!!!! Sept. 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
In this funny-assed film, Jim Belushi and John Ritter form an unlikely partnership in this fast-paced sendup of spy thrillers that poses the question, just what makes a real man? Is it Nick Pirandello (Belushi), the best CIA agent in the world, who can handle any situation without flinching, fumbling or mussing his hair? Or Bob Wilson (Ritter) a meek ultracivilized paper pusher who avoids confrontation at all costs? With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Nick recruits Bob for a vital mission. It's no easy job because they're being chased by both the Russians and renegade CIA agents. But as they dodge bullets, outwit their pursuers, face back alley ambushes and try to keep a very important appointment with aliens, Bob gets a lot tougher. And Nick becomes a much more sensitive human being. With this kind of teamwork they might even save all of mankind. It's all in a days work for real men as you safely laugh your butt off at home- boy! Freakin funny as hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is one of the funniest movies ever made Aug. 3 2000
Format:VHS Tape
i had almost forgot how funny real men was when i rented it , i had only seen it on tbs a few times but let me just set up this "clip" james belushi is nick, nick walks into his bosses office to give him a map he has gone great lengths to get as he holds his hand out a man standing in the corner leaps infront of him and grabs the map, and throws it out the window where another man catches it and drives off, he is escorted out of the office screaming, "We have the map, and you'll never get it back!!!" nick looks up and says "its ok, that wasnt the map", "what was it?", "it was a note telling them i know who their leaders are", "who are their leaders?", "i dont know", i just died laughing and i am dead set on purchsing this movie now, it is hard to find, no one seems to know this movie, but is it freaking great, the plot line is somewhat silly, but only in the style of the movie, not insane

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart and Hilarious April 24 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is a very very funny film that has gone by almost unnoticed. The plot is simple, all life on earth will be dead in a few years if Jim Belushi cannot get John Ritter, a milquetoast, that he has it in him to save the world. Simple. Along the way you meet a rogue CIA group dressed as clowns, aliens from another world who want a glass of water and the KGB. I say this all matter of factly because that is exactly the attitude that Jim Belushi's character does. He's seen it all before and the hilarity comes when you take someone who has never had an exciting experience in this life (Ritter) and team him with someone that has had so many crazy and wild adventures that even saving the world is mundane. This is a great satire on our national security. I recommend this film to anyone who does not take everything seriously and/or wants to laugh. Some of the components are a little over the top, but that's what movies are for.
Thanks for your time:

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cut Above Other 80s Comedies Dec 25 2003
Format:DVD
Ya gotta love MGM for releasing those "forgotten" films that we all grew up with like Mannequin for example. Real Men is one of those films that you probably caught yourself watching on HBO more than once back in the day. In fact, you probably don't even remember the name of the film, but remember John Ritter and Jim Belushi and the aliens and the glass of water, and of course the S&M girl. I've always loved this movie. It's one of the few I can still laugh at after all these years, and that's because it was exceptionally well written. Very witty and very funny, with two fantastic performances from it's leads. Why didn't writer/director Dennis Feldman ever go on to do anything else? Sure he was writer of the rotten sci-fi horror flick Virus with Jamie Lee Curtis, but I'm not sure he wants people to know that. If you missed this the first time around, I'd suggest renting it.

This is a great movie. I would recommend buying it if you want your obscure, but memoreable eighties DVD collection to be complete.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's all true, this one is great.
Gotta agree with everyone above. "Real Men" is hillarious. I have not seen it for years, but remember it as a twist on the "In-Laws" with Peter Falk and Alan... Read more
