[Kaufman and Gondry] dive right into the subject [of sex] to lay bare the pain of it, and to have us laugh at it.

Human Nature cleverly satirizes our most ridiculous- and in many ways, our most tragic- impulses, and finds a unique balance between light-hearted humor and abject farce.

Not for everyone, but oddly charming. Great scenes with trained mice.

Plays as a sophomoric exercise in the art of satire.

Risky, totally insane, at times brilliant, and absolutely original, Human Nature is a trip. A wonderfully wacky, weird satirical comedy that is hit and miss.

Surreal comedy explores the differences between man and the animals -- and finds humans wanting.

Offers viewers a chance to laugh at themselves.

... laughing, you can forgive the self-conscious mucking around with the metaphysical... [but] you wouldn't want to call it's cribbed iteration of Rousseau brilliant.

Tries for both civilized wit and primitive joy -- and mostly misses both.

The year's happiest surprise, a movie that deals with a real subject in an always surprising way.
