  • 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.

    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.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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." Collapse

    A schlockfest. What a disappointment.
