Human Nature initially succeeds by allowing itself to go crazy, but ultimately fails by spinning out of control.

Movie Eye

Director Michel Gondry's satire on the "beast in us all" is too pretentious and tedious for us to take as a wry, frothy entertainment. Despite the overload of quirkiness instilled in Kaufman's spotty script, Human Nature is an awkward and tired mes

If Kaufman kept Cameron Diaz a prisoner in a cage with her ape, in his latest, he'd have them mate.

The movie lacks the energizing force that Jonze, a producer on this film, gave Malkovich.

An overemphatic, would-be wacky, ultimately tedious sex farce.

Human Nature is a goofball movie, in the way that Malkovich was, but it tries too hard.
