Michael's dream sequence in which Natalie is surrounded by rose pedals is a spoof of the dream sequence in the 1999 film American Beauty. Amber Smith who played the redhead woman who tricks Michael into gambling at the casino was also in American Beauty. See more »
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 »
Say it, Michael.
I won't do it unless you say it.
I'm sorry. I'm having a little bit of trouble concentrating here. What is it exactly you want me to say?
You know. Those three... little... words...
Those three little words... Hold on a minute.
What? What's wrong?
I'm sorry. I'm going to have to ask you to leave.
Why are you acting like this?
Shelby, I like you. I like you a lot. But things are just moving a little too fast. I'm just not ready to say, "I love you".

Is "Tomcats" as tasteless as you think? Definitely! This is not a smart, intellectual comedy. The gags are often pretty cheap. But I laughed a lot! I wouldn't put this movie down in comedy history, but if you want to spend a whole hour and thirty minutes croaking with laughter--I can't say you'll be disappointed. If you can't handle this lewd brand of comedy, please don't bother with "Tomcats." However, there is one joke involving the consumption of a human testicle (Yes, you heard right) which I felt was one of the MOST disgusting gags I've ever seen!!! Better yet, one of the most disgusting moments in the history of motion pictures. I have to say, I almost gave up on the film at that point. Luckily, the copious laughs made up for the extreme crudeness. So if you decide to rent this movie, make sure you fast-forward to the next scene when the testicle scene comes up. As long as you skip through that one scene, you should be able to leave this movie unharmed. The plot is sitcom material, and no more than a bunch of setups for hysterical, outrageous gags, but I was laughing so hard I ignored the throwaway plot.
Other things to anticipate are Bill Maher's portrayal of the ruthless crimelord Carlos and Garry Marshall's cameo appearance. Of course, Shannon Elizabeth is in the cast ('Nuff said). Can you get much hotter than Shannon? Not to sound shallow, but I really expected to see tons of nudity--judging by the ads including one with that hot blonde chick (I forgot her name) about to take her top off. Don't expect to see any female nudity (though there's one breast shot used for comic purposes). Lots of scantily-clad babes, but none of them get naked. And for the ladies out there, there is some brief male nudity (For all feminists who think this comedy is degrading to women--Shut up! You got your share of male nudity. We're even). However, I don't know if anyone--male or female--would want to anticipate seeing Jake Busey in a thong.
"Tomcats" is not the best of the gross-out comedies, but it delivers. The jokes are sitcom material, but it's funny sitcom material.
You might want to stop the tape or DVD during the outtakes, though. Many people said the outtakes were hilarious, but I thought they were the worst outtakes I've ever seen. The kind of stuff that can only be funny to those working in the cast or crew. Luckily, they're at the very end of the film, so watching them is optional.
My score: 7 (out of 10)
