WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Barbie Lefay has her hands full trying to keep up with her fatherís ridiculous antics and his outrageous collection of ex-wives. When her father is presumed dead in Mexico, Barbie returns home to help with the funeral and gets bombarded by the insane life her father left behind only to find out heís not really dead after all.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I find it funny that as many popular actors and actresses fall off the most wanted A-list in Hollywood they somehow end up headlining a TV series or starring in a couple off-radar films a year which end up being far better than their previous five feature films. The circle of life in Hollywood is a strange one but luckily for Tim Allen, the process works. THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY LEFAY is a fun comedy with lots of heart and a perfect fit for funny man Tim Allen.

The story is hilarious, and why wouldnít it be these days as running into someone with two or three ex-wives is nowhere near as uncommon as it used to be. Hell, I personally have a couple best friends on marriage two and one of them isnít even thirty yet. Thereís nothing wrong with loving life and keeping the spark alive as you get older but six wives is a little much. Iím not sure how any man could handle that many divorces and still end up with enough money to vacation in Mexico but I guess Henry Lefay knows something most men donít.

I loved the audio-video commercials (especially the Malcolm X one) and I loved the oversized stuffed pig along with the story behind it. Tim Allenís character, though completely a ladiesí man, is easy to love which makes his character all the more brilliant. And speaking of love, it was great seeing Elisha Cuthbert again as sheís all but fallen off the face of the Earth (I donít really count her miniscule cameo in the last season of 24) and thatís a shame as I totally fell in love with her after watching THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. The other ladies in Mr. Lefayís life are also known beauties and despite being a little crazy, I have to say Henry must have done something right if he could get all six of these women in the same room without a murder. I donít know a whole lot about divorce but I find it hard to believe so many women could be so easy going with a dude that pretty much cheated on them all, not to mention Iím not sure I could marry the same woman three times.

THE MANY WIVES OF HENRY LEFAY is a decent comedy and a true to form film for Tim Allen. He looks fantastic here and handles the lead with ease. One thing that did confuse me was Chris Kleinís pointless presence in the film. There was absolutely no need for it whatsoever and to be perfectly honest, Iím amazed he can even score a role at all after his atrocious work in STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN LI. The ending here was typical for this type of flick but it wouldíve been nice to leave a little to the imagination when it came down to Henryís death instead of giving it away on the back of the box and making the first two thirds of the film a moot point, but hey, thatís just me.
THE EXTRAS
Previews: There are a slew of trailers before the feature film and thatís it.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I gave up on Tim Allen when he started making nonsense like THE SHAGGY DOG and although this isnít exactly GALAXY QUEST, itís still funny enough to merit a watch especially when you consider the various cameo appearances. However, this Blu-rayís pretty bare when it comes to extras so renting is the way Iíd go.
