There was reportedly a great deal of argument and dissent during the making of the film, and it is reflected in its erratic tone and slovenly, indecisive and increasingly incoherent narrative.

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.

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

This is actually a pretty clever idea, and it's certainly ambitious -- too ambitious.

The movie is a limp comedy of disempowerment, set in a cartoon world where testosterone rules.

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

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

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.

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.
