BAD, BAD MEN is a comedy about Josh, Royce, and Steven, three good guys and fellow realtors who are bound together by fragile egos and fierce loyalty. When Josh grabs coffee one morning on his way to work, he fumbles through his order and is accosted by Jerry, a cocksure "high-roller", for awkwardly flirting with the barista and wasting everybody's time. When Josh steps out of the coffee shop, he can't shake the feeling that he needs to stand up for himself. He tries to reason with his newfound bully but is quickly dismissed by him and left to just watch Jerry drive off. Josh attempts to get on with his day and forget all about it, but he just can't let it go. Josh decides that he needs to track Jerry down and put him in his place, and he enlists Royce and Steven to help him out and back him up. Fortunately (?), Josh took note of Jerry's license plate, so the guys are on their way. They confront Jerry at his office, and Josh lets loose with all the things that he wished he'd said to ...

Classic high school nerd fights back against the bully story. Only difference is the nerd is all grown up and so is the bully. Very funny, great characters lots of bits that make you laugh out loud. The cast is solid, the director has a real knack for subtle comedic moments. Sound track works very well with the tone and humor of the film. Two enthusiastic thumbs up. This is a film for anyone looking to laugh.

Did Bad, Bad Men predict the #metoo movement? It did certainly open up the conversation around the Toxic Masculinity and treats it as a problem. This film offers a humorous look at this often overlook subject. Director Allen Gardner is able to properly showcase this issue and executes it in a beautiful creative way. This film is full of great funny moments thanks to the great chemistry between all characters, allowing us to relate to the story and to delight us with great entertainment and laughs. This is a must see indie gem.

I really liked Bad, Bad Men. The writing was as unique as it was genuinely funny. And between laughs there was a (somewhat) subtle poignancy about "bro culture." Tonally, Bad, Bad Men doesn't take itself too seriously, which is almost indicative of the dangers of "toxic male culture." These guys are flippant--about women, children, their jobs, the future, and each other. Its almost as if the film was satirically produced by a shallow man who wants to tell the story about how shallow men behave in the world. What makes it work is how self-aware it is.

It also works as a lighthearted male-centric comedy that felt close to films like "Extract" or "Hall Pass." There were so many great moments (and lines) that had me in stitches. One scene that I thought nailed it involved a father entering his home to take money out of his children's "dream fund" to use as a last resort for a ransom exchange. He encounters every member of his family tenderly reminding him about how sweet, innocent, and full of hope they are. The writing and performance of that moment was perfect.

If you're in the mood to laugh at "boys being boys" in a way that highlights just how awful boys (and people in general) can be, don't miss this one.

Was not prepared to love this unpretentious, endearing (in a totally macho, cool-dude way) film. The chemistry of the characters/actors, with the fun/fresh plot kept me hooked (and laughing) to the final frame. Indie writing/filmmaking at its best right here.

Allen C. Gardner manages to pull off double-duty as the co-director and male lead in the somehow prescient Bad, Bad Men, a film that leverages and then debunks the long-standing idiocy of the Toxic American Male with a retro-freshness predating the formal identifications of the #MeToo and anti-bullying movements.

Jerry is our prototypical over-masculine ass-hat, and Josh is our unsuspecting Everyman unsure of what to do when the emotional brutality of a heckler unsuspectingly shames his world. Josh doesn't have the physicality or the thuggish inbred mindset to beat Jerry black and blue, or to engage him in lowbrow psychological warfare; instead, he seeks out his cohorts in a safety-in-numbers, Buddy Movie play. What subsequently ensues is knowing laughter, and in no shortage of volume.

In real American life when human sensitivity and the plight of the individual's well-being is given center-stage, it can then be difficult and even taboo to treat these wounds with comedy while they're still fresh. But Gardner succeeds in exactly that, allowing us to laugh at shame without undercutting the severity of its impacts. Bad, Bad Men applies light-heartedness to a deep wound, and the resulting laughter is authentic and indeed helps us to heal.

Bad, Bad Men is very contemporary in its subject of exposing toxic masculinity. The film takes a comedic look at what happens if the goofy guy next door decides to fight the alpha male, an old high school bully. (Now still bully but all grown-up.) It's hilarious. I was laughing out loud.

The acting, directing and script writing is solid. All in all a real indie gem!

This is an offbeat indie comedy with colorful characters and nice production value. Worth watching!

So Bad, Bad Men is a really funny movie. Being that this was made sometime before this current climate of the various #metoo movements, BRAVO to this filmmaker and cast for being ahead of the times and being able to properly showcase the difference between men who invoke "toxic masculinity" and men who don't quite have that same bravado. I thoroughly enjoyed the subtle handed comedy infused throughout this gem. There are some genuinely hilarious performances that I hope bring some attention to this film and these guys, because I'd love to see more of them (characters: Josh, Royce & Steven). Without giving too much away, if you liked Horrible Bosses or even 9 to 5, you will love this!! I did! Highly recommend if you're ready for a good time!!

Josh is a likable but goofy nice guy real estate agent. Used to turning the other cheek and avoiding conflict. While ordering a coffee Josh is un decisive and attempting to flirt with the barista, when a grown up "high school" bully heckles him in front of a huge crowd of customers. After hyping himself up, Josh fails to properly respond to the bully. So he does what anyone at the end of their rope would do, he gets a couple friends and tracks the bully down. What follows is a series of bad choices, misconceptions, and comedic hijinks.

The movie pokes fun at the characters and situation while showcasing toxic masculinity- which makes it very timely. This is an entertaining comedy, that does not take itself seriously. Watch it if you are looking for a fun and sometimes goofy indie. The production value is good and the cast remind me of people I know (for better and worse).

What a great find! A really fun and entertaining comedy in the vein of 'Horrible Bosses' or 'Very Bad Things'. I was giggling throughout, enjoying the sharp writing. The performances are all spot-on across the board, which is so rare in an indie of this scale. Recommended.

Bad, Bad Men is a funny, over-the-top comedy about three men who are tired of getting pushed around, who try and often fail to be "Bad, Bad Men." The movie is an enjoyable ride along with 3 regular, or even dorky, guys who are about as capable as I am of being believably tough. I laughed a lot, particularly in the scenes with Rex (Gabe Arredondo) and The Bookie (Richard Speight Jr.) who give hilarious performances. If you liked Horrible Bosses, I feel like you'd love this film. I highly recommend it.

A very funny comedy that was well put together. I was watching it by myself and my wife came in and started watching some of it and she couldn't stop watching it. Character development was good, story very solid and the quality was A1.
