Product Description

A group of friends make a bet that the last remaining bachelor among them will receive a large amount of money. Having lost a large sum in Vegas, one of the friends desperately tries to get his friend married so he can pay his debt.
Genre: Feature Film-Comedy
Rating: R
Release Date: 3-JUN-2003
Media Type: DVD

One might reasonably expect Tomcats to be the Porky's of 2001: after all, it concerns a group of young, sexist morons and their fears and fantasies about young women. But Tomcats isn't quite as brain-dead as that, though it is phenomenally more neurotic. Jerry O'Connell plays one of two remaining bachelors within a group of wealthy pals who set aside a cash reward, years before, earmarked for the last among them to get married. O'Connell needs the money to pay off a gambling debt, but his problem is that the other bachelor is a horrendous pig (Jake Busey) unlikely ever to land a gal. A general mean-spiritedness flows through this wearying comedy, manifest in such ugly moments as watching someone's girlfriend run over by a golf cart and an excised, cancerous testicle kicked around hospital hallways. If you're looking for female flesh, however, forget it: Tomcats is far more driven to explore male nudity, while making equally naked today's masculine fears of impotence, mothers, and lesbians. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars FLIPPIN' HILLARIOUS April 27, 2001
I walked into the "Tomcats" expecting a really bad movie with a few laughs every once in a while. MAN WAS I WRONG!
"Tomcats" is about a group of buddies who one day, after a wedding, make a little bet. They each place some money into a pot every year and the Tomcat who remains single the longest, gets all the money. Some years go buy and mostly every Tomcat is married except for two, Kyle (Jake Busey) a sex crazed maniac with a ton of cash to spend and a somewhat starving artist (Jerry O'Connel). Problems arrive at a casino and O'Connel's charecter owes a group of mobsters around 50 thousand dollars. Now the only way to get his money is to marry up Kyle, the only one who stands in his way of the pot. But an even bigger problem occurs when the artist starts to fall for the girl he tries to set Kyle up with (Shannon Elizabeth).
Throughout the entire film, many hillarious situatuions and scenes occur during the film. At times, I had to grab onto my stomach because I was laughing so hard. Though, every minute of this movie is hillarious, there are parts of the film you will remember more than others and some scenesyou will never forget for as long as you live (three little words, O'Connel's date with a librarian and when Kyle gets testicular cancer).
"Tomcats" is a great film with gaurenteed laughs that start from the beggining until the very end. All the acting is surprisingly good, especially from Busey and O'Connel. Unless you're someone who doesn't like to have fun, Tomcats is the ultiate film. TOMCATS ROCKS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raunch At Its Hilarious BEST!! April 11, 2003
By Hillary
Format:VHS Tape
Well at least I think so. Jerry O'Connell, most recently of "Kangaroo Jack" fame, is one of two buddies in a large group of male friends who have pooled money together betting who can remain single. Finally it is down to O'Connell, an artist with some scruples, and his friend Kyle who has none.

During a trip to Las Vegas, O'Connell runs up a $51K gambling debt to a hilariously vicious, yet deadpan Bill Maher and his goons. Although there is enough in the jackpot to free O'Connell from reposession hell as Maher takes all he owns as collateral, he has even tougher odds of getting Kyle married, since he is a complete louse to all woman kind.

In walks Shannon Elizabeth as a cop who once dated Kyle and was left with a role of quarters in the road for a cab after being deflowered and dumped. She was a bridesmaid at one of the many weddings attended by the bachelor gang as they all became married one by one. O'Connell falls in love when he meets Elizabeth, but to free his debt, ends up getting her married to Kyle, or DOES he? YOU have to see this and find out for yourself.

While some are thumbing their nose at this film, I found it a scream. It was entertaining from start to finish, and lately, I find myself hitting the fast forward on many movies just to get through them. NOT "Tomcats". Is it sexist? SURE! I am a woman, I can laugh at this, in fact I did, out loud many times. There are more laughs and plain old feel good fun here than most comedies I have seen in awhile. A dominatrix librarian and her grannie partner who lure unsuspecting men into their dungeon of discipline? A diseased testicle ending up rocketing around a hospital while chased down by O'Connell?

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny September 17, 2004
By Johnny
This 2001 sex comedy delivers the goods. It is very funny especially with its gross out humor bits. You will laugh from beginning to end. The acting in the movie is pretty good. And the beautiful Shannon Elizabeth looks so hot as she usually does. This movie is great fun and will have you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it March 9, 2013
By M. Heck
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not a movie with rave reviews but the plot and acting is good. If you like comedy, you'll probably like this. Not an academy award winner, but still worth your time.

This is probably one of my favorite movies. Jerry O'Connell and Shannon Elizabeth do a great job. Wish there were other funny movies like this.

I have seen Tomcats dozens and dozens of times now, and I still laugh all the way through the movie. It's raunchy, tacky and juvenile, and one of the greatest comedies of our generation. Chill out and enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sexy comedy like it was described November 9, 2001
By Andrew
Ok, I know this movie got a lot of bad reviews, but mostly from people who are not into gross out, over the top comedies (people who gave this movie 1 to 2 stars should stick to more serious films). The beginning of Tomcats isn't spectacularly funny but once we see the characters get past the first wedding, the film really starts to pick up and starts to get a lot funnier. If you're into movies along the lines of "Say It Isn't So" or "Saving Silverman" then I think you'll enjoy this movie.
As for the DVD features, theres nothing really special there, just some trailers from other movies and filmographies for the actors. However, you do get a choice of watching the movie in either Widescreen or Full Screen (its always good to have options).
I would definitly recommend this movie for a good laugh, just don't try to watch it seriously.

I can guarantee you there will soon be a barrage of 1-star reviews coming for this movie. If you are going to watch this movie you first must realize what it is, an over-the-top comedy with sight-gags and numerous sexual references. If you go into it expecting something more profound than this, you are going to be sadly disappointed and should probably watch something else. However if you are in the mood for this kind of comedy, this movie will not disappoint. Jerry O'Connell is great in this movie and Shannon Elizabeth is fairly good also (though I don't think she is that great of an actress). Jamie Presly's performance was extremely disappointing however. Anyways, I wasn't really expecting much when I saw it in the theater (mostly due to bad reviews I had read... almost ALL bad reviews). However, I was very pleasantly surprised as this movie was hilarious. There were a few forced jokes that didn't quite hit the mark, but most of them did. It was very well paced, not really getting slow very often and kept the humor coming. I think it was cast pretty well and everyone played their roles well, I couldn't help but root for the good guys to prevail in the end.
The underlying story really isn't that bad either and it does have a fairly good message to it. Overall its one of the better comedies in this genre that I've seen and full of energy. It's definitely on my purchase list once its released on DVD.

I own it and rewatch it at times. The who gets married last ton tine is a clever ploy and sets up the whole movie. Shannon Elizabeth is worth watching as she gets even with Busey.
