Although a few moments are hilarious, this would-be romp remains laboriously earthbound when it should be swinging gaily through the trees.
July 20, 2002
Tries for both civilized wit and primitive joy -- and mostly misses both.

The simplicity with which it depicts these [animal] forces eternally at war with each other is sometimes sublimely evocative.

For all its highfalutin title and corkscrew narrative, the movie turns out to be not much more than a shaggy human tale.

It's all squeamishly pathetic in a freaked-out way, as the actors are reduced to primates and the movie makes no sense at all.
April 15, 2002
It's way out there, but not effective enough.

I could have used my two hours better watching Being John Malkovich again.

The results, if not memorable, are at least interesting.

What lingers is Arquette and her wistful little squeak of a voice, imbuing Lila with a mournfulness that's quite touching.

A satisfying and original picture.

The funniest movie I've seen so far this year (which is saying almost nothing), but it has an air of pale, forced outrageousness about it.
April 12, 2002
Human Nature is a goofball movie, in the way that Malkovich was, but it tries too hard.

A treat for aficionados of oddball movies.

Remains more of a riff than an actual movie.

Give this one a try, if for no other reason than to convince Hollywood that 'something different' doesn't automatically mean throwing away good money.
April 12, 2002
It's just weirdness for the sake of weirdness, and where Human Nature should be ingratiating, it's just grating.

April 12, 2002
Enjoyably off-kilter and generously seasoned with laugh-out-loud moments.
April 12, 2002
If it tried to do anything more, it would fail and perhaps explode, but at this level of manic whimsy, it is just about right.

This time Kaufman's imagination has failed him.

Human Nature should have been more polished, and less tame.

All the way to the middle of the movie, and maybe beyond that, it's impossible to get the script's drift. That's frustrating if not outright defeating.

April 11, 2002
This is an aggressive mix of smart and stupid, a high-concept goof that swings with abandon and makes enough contact to keep you smiling.

A sporadically amusing mess of good intentions and bad execution.

April 11, 2002
The movie is too cute to take itself too seriously, but it still feels like it was made by some very stoned college students.

April 11, 2002
A movie that falls victim to frazzled wackiness and frayed satire.

April 9, 2002
An overemphatic, would-be wacky, ultimately tedious sex farce.
March 28, 2002
The movie lacks the energizing force that Jonze, a producer on this film, gave Malkovich.

A film of ideas and wry comic mayhem.
