    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."

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

    A schlockfest. What a disappointment.

  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.
