Synopsis

“Tomcats” is the story of Michael Delaney (O’Connell), a struggling cartoonist, who must get his best friend and avowed bachelor, Kyle Bremmer (Busey), to wed within 30 days in order to win a bet and save himself from financial ruin. Things get complicated when Michael falls for Natalie Parker (Shannon Elizabeth), the woman he propositioned to be Kyle’s bride.

Dove Review

The film takes its humor mostly from absurdities and crude sexual bawdiness. Like most of the vulgar comedies flooding today’s megaplexes, it aims at a male teen audience. Boys just can’t seem to get enough of sexual innuendo mingled with flatulence jokes. Girls, I can only hope that those backwards-ball-cap-topped, baggy-pants-wearing high school heartthrobs of yours will out-grow their taste in movies. But it doesn’t look like Hollywood is going to.

Content Description

Language: 25 profanities; 25 obscenities; countless sexual and slang terms; 20 expletives – Sex: Folks, it’s one incessant sex joke; while there is no full nudity, the film comes as close as possible, showing as much cleavage and bare bottom as the rating will allow; the raunchy sexual humor encompasses every aspect of sexuality from masturbation to SandM – Drinking and smoking throughout; cocaine is seen on a table, but we don’t see any of the leads partaking – Violence: Most of the violent images are either slapstick or cartoonish; a gun battle with outlaws getting shot, with one being killed; a truck hits a man, but he is not injured
