    Synopsis


    Real Men
    A CIA agent recruits a meek family man for a secret mission involving interstellar communication and copious violence in this tongue-in-cheek buddy flick from the writer/producer of The Golden Child. Insurance salesman Bob Wilson (John Ritter) is the kind of guy who stands by while suburban punks steal his kid's bike. Nick Pirandello (James Belushi) is the exact opposite -- a brash, womanizing alpha male revered within the CIA for his many successful secret missions. When a fellow agent who looks exactly like Bob gets killed just days before he's due to head up a very delicate mission, Nick recruits the reluctant Bob to help out. As Bob gets drawn deeper into a world of Russian hit men, transsexual beauties, and secret-agent hijinks, he slowly gains the self-confidence that's always escaped him. Meanwhile, he's constantly at the mercy of Nick's tongue-in-cheek humor, so he's a little skeptical when Nick reveals that the big meeting is with a group of aliens who want to share their advanced technology with humans. As it turns out, there may be something to Nick's outrageous story -- if only Bob can survive long enough to find out. The lone directorial credit for screenwriter/producer Dennis Feldman, Real Men features Barney Miller vet Barbara Barrie in a supporting role as Nick's placid, accommodating mother. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

      Hilarious 80's Movie. John Ritter & Jim Belushi

      This is a great little escapism movie for adults and for most teens. It's got a few PG-13 type of scenes but nothing that would make parents of today have to cover their kids eyes. It's actually a bit progressive for that time (one scene mentioning Transgender issue). If you aren't a cynic and can let go of reality this movie showcases two very different comedy styles of the two main actors but they were matched perfectly to their parts and I can remember the first time I watched it it had me in tears I was laughing so hard at it's don't take things to serious humor. It's 80's comedy, it's like Three's company meets Hart to Hart. They wouldn't stand up to today's scrutiny or even be made but at the time it was IMHO a very under rated comedy. Others have stated it's a patch work cutting room floor put back together, well I couldn't disagree more. The story is about two unlikely people getting from point A / Task A to point B / Task B and we are just along for the belly laughs along the way. A little too pricey at one nine nine nine though it has be down to one two and some change.
