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

Full Review… | April 2, 2007

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

Audience Reviews for Man About Town

Rather inert both comedically and dramatically. Affleck tries.

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.
