Man About Town is frustratingly manic in its tone... the unevenness wears too thin too quickly.
Binder's made some really fine movies and some curiously weak ones; my opinion is that this one falls firmly in the latter group.
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.
has enough of a sense of humor to overcome the Affleck-induced malaise that you might otherwise be expecting
...Binder's reliance on increasingly melodramatic elements effectively negates the film's few positive attributes...
O desfecho, em sua ânsia de amarrar a narrativa com uma mensagenzinha engrandecedora, soa falso e não faz jus ao restante do filme, que utiliza muito bem o humor para desenvolver personagens quase sempre interessantes.
Affleck's best performance since Good Will Hunting
Like writer director Mike Binder's previous film, The Upside of Anger, there is bite in this comedy as it looks at relationships, inner-demons and resolutions.
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.
Rather inert both comedically and dramatically. Affleck tries.
