  • Summary: An unflinching yet winsome exploration of modern relationships -- and modern men and women -- in all of their humor, tragedy, imperfection and triumph, this sophisticated comedy follows the romantic escapades of two New York couples. (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

  1. A smart, sharply observed, highly affable look at contemporary relationships that finally injects a little life in the stagnating genre.
  2. 63
    A better than adequate date movie.

    Freundlich's intelligent, very funny take on male-female relationships manages the not inconsiderable feat of being both jaded and appealingly fresh.

    For those who appreciate the Woody Allen view of New York but would prefer fewer neurotics, Trust the Man provides a loving take on bourgeois Manhattan contentment that's usually only found in episodes of "Will & Grace."
  5. Can these banal relationships between undifferentiated lovelies be saved?
  6. It's possible that a smart, insightful, sharp-edged comedy could have been written around these characters, but Trust The Man isn't it.

    Writer-director Bart Freundlich (Moore's husband) has nothing to say and nowhere to go with this material, except to the most contrived ending this side of a "Will & Grace" episode.
