    I liked it. Sure doesn't deserve all those pro reviewers who slammed it.

    A brilliant slice of movie magic. A landmark motion picture.

    This movie was HILARIOUS. I can't understand the bad reviews. I think part of it is understanding Eugene Levy's sense of humor. The humor is in his expressions & hand gestures (It's very much a Jewish sense of humor.) He is a perfect foil for Samuel Jackon's kick-ass no-nonsense. So if you don't get, you lose!

  1. Both Jackson and Levy are better than director Les Mayfield's ("Blue Streak") meandering comedy.

    Levy and Jackson save the day, and the film. The Man isn't great entertainment, but it contains enough laughter-provoking material to make it worth a look.
