The Ladies Man is a 2000 comedy film starring Tim Meadows as Leon Phelps - a smooth-talking, sex-crazed radio show host. The film follows Phelps as he tries to navigate his way through relationships and finally find true love. The film also stars Karyn Parsons and Billy Dee Williams in supporting roles. The plot is set in motion when Phelps is fired from his job at his radio station for giving the wrong advice to a listener. Forced to look for a new job, he stumbles upon a gig at a small AM radio station in the suburbs. Here, he becomes an overnight sensation with his show "The Ladies Man," where he dishes out sexual advice to his listeners, often through songs and suggestive dialogue.

While Phelps is on cloud nine with his newfound fame, he still longs for true love. He has a wide array of ex-girlfriends, each of whom he treated poorly, but they still find themselves drawn to his charming personality. One of his former flames, Julie Simmons (Karyn Parsons), approaches him for help in finding her missing father. Leicester (Billy Dee Williams), a rich businessman and Simmons' father, has suddenly disappeared, and Simmons is convinced that Phelps can help her find him.

Phelps is initially reluctant to take on the challenge, preferring to focus on his radio show and his quest for sexual conquests. However, he reluctantly agrees to help Simmons, and the two of them set out to find her father. Along the way, they encounter a range of quirky characters, including a strange couple who like to capture people on film to use as inspiration for their art, a group of Amish people who take a liking to Phelps, and a dangerous criminal who threatens to take Phelps' life.

As Phelps and Simmons spend more time together, they begin to develop feelings for each other. But the path to true love is never smooth, and they must overcome various obstacles before they can be together. Along the way, Phelps learns some valuable lessons about life and love, and he finally comes to understand what it means to be a real man.

Overall, The Ladies Man is a hilarious and entertaining comedy that will keep audiences laughing from start to finish. The film is full of hilarious one-liners and sight gags, and Tim Meadows is perfect in the lead role. The supporting cast, including Karyn Parsons and Billy Dee Williams, are also excellent, adding depth and humor to the story. The film has a great soundtrack, with popular songs from the 1970s and 80s, which only adds to the film's sense of fun and nostalgia.

The Ladies Man was directed by Reginald Hudlin, who is known for his work on films such as House Party (1990) and Boomerang (1992). The film was produced by Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday Night Live, where Meadows got his start as a cast member. The film is a loose adaptation of a character Meadows played on Saturday Night Live, and it shows - The Ladies Man feels like a sketch comedy that has been expanded to fill a feature-length film. However, this is not a criticism, as the film's humor is consistently funny throughout.

In conclusion, The Ladies Man is a must-see comedy for anyone looking for a good laugh. The film is full of humor, heart, and some genuinely touching moments, making it a worthwhile addition to anyone's movie collection. Whether you're a fan of Tim Meadows, Karyn Parsons, or just looking for a funny and entertaining movie to watch, The Ladies Man is an excellent choice.
