[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.

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.

A little watered down Spike Jonze has to be entertaining some of the time, so this isn't a total loss.

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

One of a kind, a fresh comedy of ideas, and a daft, deft poke in the funny bone.

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.

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

Weird and wacky, but what else would you expect from the creators of Being John Malkovich?

What Kaufman has here is a brilliant, funny, painfully human, and delightfully creative social statement.

Though not as tightly focused or as well-performed as Malkovich, Human Nature has its own absurdist flair.

While "Human Nature" isn't as brilliant or engrossing as "Being John Malkovich," it's still refreshing story telling -- nicely punctured with a surprise musical number straight out of "Snow White."
