The Extra Man Reviews

Kevin Kline's tour de force, a performance of uncommon joie de vivre.

A typical Sundance type comedy that confuses quirkiness with humor. Needless to say, it stars Paul Dano in his typically weird character role. A totally annoying film.

Belly laughs are few and far between but the overarching tone of silliness deftly underscored by the human experience makes for a largely fulfilling cinematic experience.

Laramie Movie Scope

Kevin Kline, who has a gift for this kind of characterization, heads up a talented trio of actors, all playing extremely quirky characters who are borderline pathological, but funny and harmless.

The pic becomes too bent out of shape by so many kooks sharing the spotlight.

Harrison's life is a quest only for pleasure, and Kline and Dano definitely provide it, even if their arc is short and shallow. See it for Kevin.

I loved Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's The Extra Man, but it's not going to be to everyone's liking.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

The episodic script is all verve and no wit, a relentless tribute to nonconformity that starts to exhaust its goofiness after the first hour.

While directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini are busy tipping their caps to their favorite literary figures, they seem to forget their obligation to good movie-making.

Too clever for its own good, this film moves abruptly between serious drama and broad comedy.

...so full of improbabilities (you begin to wonder if anyone connected with the film has actually been to New York) that the whole experience just becomes wearying.

An entertaining kinky kick of a movie, a lightweight delight about dreamers and dilettantes.

"Extra Man" is a loving ode to the eccentrics of New York, and a wish that even in today's Disneyfied Manhattan, the city will always make room for the weirdos, too.

The Extra Man is a disappointment coming from Berman and Pulcini, whose American Splendor was an imaginative biopic about the late comic-book author Harvey Pekar.

As paltry and unsubstantial a film as The Extra Man is, I cannot find it within myself to completely resist its charms. The reason can be summed up in two incandescent words: Kevin Kline.

The movie sags whenever Kline is offscreen, and when he's on screen, his presence and his character take over completely -- something that the filmmakers, and certainly Dano, did not intend.

Dano and Kline are very fine performers. So why is this comedy such a chore? The answer appears to be whimsy overload.
