Critic Reviews for A Perfect Man

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Too bland to inspire strong feelings of any kind.

Top Critic

One of those projects whose very existence should baffle anyone hardy enough to endure all 94 minutes.

Top Critic

It's a confusing, awkward picture, though Man has its fair share of compelling incidents. Just not nearly enough of them to make the effort shine.

Full Review… | December 5, 2013

Flat and uninteresting, both visually and dramatically, this is a waste of two appealing actors.

Full Review… | November 6, 2013

In its elliptical presentation of its characters' lives, brings to mind the latter-day films of Philippe Garrel, but Kees Van Oostrum's genre experimentation aligns him with Paul Verhoeven.

Audience Reviews for A Perfect Man

Jeanne Tripplehorn and Liev Schreiber's performances are the best reason to watch this film. I felt like I have seen this type of film before It reminded me of movies like Unfaithful and Eyes Wide Shut. They had a good idea for a film but didn't execute it correctly. It needed a rewrite. The tone was off and it was a bit unfocused.

Tripplehorn is great here. I am happy to see her in a leading role. It's been awhile since I saw her in a film where she had the lead role. Schreiber does a good job here too.

I say, check it out for Tripplehorn and Schrieber.

Tripplehorn and Schreiber were brilliant in this movie. This was a heartbreaking story with a perfect ending.
