There's more to Stephen Belber's debut than just manufactured whimsy, not least a wise and witty script, and some beautifully sketched side characters supporting two reliably charming leads.

For the most part, Management avoids the standard rom-com clichs in favour of something more delicate and heartfelt.

Despite the obvious Norman Bates-ish resemblance, Zahn is clearly supposed to be dishy. The Zahn/Aniston pairing is without chemistry and there frankly isn't a spark of real life in the whole film.

Unable to decide between being a romantic comedy, a zany farce or a thoughtful study of two emotionally repressed losers finding fulfilment, it ends up a mess; but an intriguing mess.

You watch Management thinking of the comedy Aniston and Zahn could have made, and wishing you were watching that movie instead.

Management should have definitely been called on to make some adjustments.

Random weirdness aside, Belber telegraphs this story arc from Sue's first drop-in to Podunk. Message received. No surprises here.

The trademark hitch in Aniston's line delivery is an effective shorthand for taking a leap of faith. In the case of both her character and her career, Management represents an admirable choice.

Management has two things going for it: Steve Zahn and Jennifer Aniston. Luckily, those are two very good things.

Padding disguised as a feature-length screenplay.

Ultimately the second half completely undermined the first half.

Zahn is essentially stalking Aniston and it's really just downright creepy.

The weirdness employed by Stephen Belber's amorous fairy tale is of a decidedly limp, half-hearted sort.
May 15, 2009
Despite the essential implausibility of the story, Management remains for the most part as endearing as its leads.

Sometimes a movie thinks it's one thing (charming) when it's really something else (creepy).
May 15, 2009
Management is something truly unusual - an underplayed movie about over-the-top emotions. For that alone, it's worth a look.

The film is a failure if it can't convince us that these two people belong together. It can't, and barely tries.

But if there's a point to be made here, it's that persistence pays off, whether you're onscreen or in the audience.
