    Enjoyable movie, funny cast, a little implausible, but life is often implausible today. A lot of it rang very true, especially the relationships between the two guys and the one between the two women.

    Ignore the critics. This is a smart, funny movie, well written and well acted, very entertaining. Eschews drama created at the point of a gun in favor of clever dialogue and characters.

    I thought it was a cute movie ~ a nice date movie ~ a fun movie. It's not meant to be the definitive New York Woody Allen-type film, but it is what it is. Nice, warm, fuzzy.. a good date movie.

    The performances of Moore and Gyllenhaal, combined, save the film from a rating of -5. Otherwise, the script is sitcom stale; the (usually) fine Cruddup channels Jack Black badly; and Duchovny seems to be working an uninteresting temp job. Here is a capable cast, poorly directed in an unimaginatively scripted Lifetime "original."

    Certainly, it has its flaws (the son of Moore & Duchovny's character

    Judging from the excellent actors in this film, I was expecting a much more clever and original film...very disappointed.

    This movie is not earth shattering, it will not be oscar nominated. It was, however, very funny, well acted and extremely entertaining. Anyone interested in romantic comedies or relationship issues will enjoy this.

    A schlockfest. What a disappointment.

    One of the funniest film that I ve seen in last years. Smart, romantic and extremely ironic and funny. I loved it. David Duchovny is one of the best actor ever.

    There were some good laughs here. If you have an interest, you could do far worse. Video is probably a safe bet for those with a more casual interest.

  1. A smart, sharply observed, highly affable look at contemporary relationships that finally injects a little life in the stagnating genre.

    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."

    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.
