Movie Info

Hollywood agent Jack Giamoro (Ben Affleck) has a ruthless dedication to his work and a tendency to neglect his wife, Nina (Rebecca Romijn). Upon discovering that Nina has been sleeping with an up-and-coming actor, Giamoro enrolls in a self-help course and begins keeping a diary. But, when that diary, with its tell-all account of Giamoro's professional and personal turmoil, falls into the hands of freelance writer Barbi Ling (Bai Ling), he struggles to retrieve it and prevent a massive scandal.

  • Man About Town is frustratingly manic in its tone... the unevenness wears too thin too quickly.

    April 2, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Binder's made some really fine movies and some curiously weak ones; my opinion is that this one falls firmly in the latter group.

    March 1, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • How dense is Binder? He uses an acoustic version of Our Lips Are Sealed to underscore a tender moment Jack recalls from his childhood. Because nothing says 1976 quite like an iconic song from 1981.

    February 14, 2007 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • has enough of a sense of humor to overcome the Affleck-induced malaise that you might otherwise be expecting

    February 13, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
  • ...Binder's reliance on increasingly melodramatic elements effectively negates the film's few positive attributes...

    February 11, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • O desfecho, em sua nsia de amarrar a narrativa com uma mensagenzinha engrandecedora, soa falso e no faz jus ao restante do filme, que utiliza muito bem o humor para desenvolver personagens quase sempre interessantes.

    rubbish filmmaker and another reason why Affleck suffered at the box office once upon a time. the film is boring and genuinely not funny. don't waste your time with this

    One of the best performances in recent memory from Ben Affleck. The movie is all over the place as far as the plot goes, just a lot of stuff going on in this movie. But, it meshes fairly well and in the end. Man About Town is worthy of your precious time.

    It is ok to check it if there is nothing else to watch but it is a movie that I would not recomment. It has some positive dialogues and some funny situation.
    John M Super Reviewer

    It struggles to have any profound impact courtesy of a poor script.
