Proof that even the most talented actors - in this case, Jack Nicholson and Ellen Barkin -- can make bad choices and turn in mediocre performances in a below-par film.

Rafelson, an accomplished screenwriter, seems unable, or unwilling, to give any shape to this mess.

Any comedy with Jack Nicholson has automatically got to be great, right? Think again.

It's not just bad, it's rancid.

Jack Nicholson fans should feel cheated by Man Trouble, an insultingly trivial star vehicle.

A sad reunion for director Bob Rafelson and actor Jack Nicholson, considering their brilliant collaboration on Five Easy Pieces.

It's a lazy-looking movie, amiable and smart, but so fuzzy, in its imagery and structure, that it suggests the sun is getting to everybody, that they all need a dip in the pool.

Not quite a romance, a thriller or a comedy, it's a movie with an on-going identity crisis.

Two capable stars, Jack Nicholson and Ellen Barkin, lose their luster in this misfired comedy.

The movie is certainly original. No other film has ever flirted with so many formulas and genres and failed so completely to (a) parody their conventions or (b) execute them with some degree of skill or design.

Here's an amazingly inept comedy from the team that gave us Five Easy Pieces some 22 years ago.

A film that can't find much deadpan wit in a scene pairing Mr. Mazursky and Mr. Nicholson is indeed a study in missed opportunities.
