Movie Info

Top Hollywood talent agent Jack Giamoro seems to have it all: a successful career, money, a beautiful wife. But, he still feels like something is missing, and so he takes a journal writing class to explore his feelings. But when Jack learns his wife Nina is cheating on him with his most important client, his perfect life quickly starts to unravel. Things get even worse when Jack's journal -- which contains secrets that could ruin him personally and professionally -- is stolen by ambitious journalist Barbi. Jack must fight back to hold on to everything he has fought so hard to win, and in doing so he finally achieves the self-insight he was looking for -- and he realizes that only through family can he really find lasting happiness.

Critic Reviews for Man About Town

All Critics (8) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

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

    Apr 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.

    Mar 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.

    Feb 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

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

    Feb 11, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    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
  • May 19, 2009
    It struggles to have any profound impact courtesy of a poor script.
    Ut S Super Reviewer
