While Fiddler is a bumbler, he is not stupid, and actually makes a few good decisions. Vann is clever dealing with criminals, but he has some emotional shortcomings. They are an interesting pair, and in this genre, that is what really counts.

If the fart jokes had been cut out, if the ultimate identity were less of an anticlimax, if Levy had had some context, if Jackson showed the slightest rapport with his co-star... No, it's no good; The Man is a dud. Move along people, nothing to see here.

Only Levy gets out of this one looking good.

A clever idea that wears thin long before the movie ends.

While both actors are too professional to simply phone their performances in, they must have realized early on that they were fighting a losing battle against the material.

I haven't seen such meaningful insight into the nature of human cooperation since this morning's Sesame Street.

Utterly and fantastically boring and totally without purpose.

There's nothing here you haven't seen elsewhere.

It's not dreadful, but the movie is executed with total indifference, as if its creators are working from a checklist.

A compendium of every odd-couple pairing ever made -- tricked out with a sufficiently high flatulence quotient to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding 5 year old.

The problem with "The Man" is that because it's so generic, so safe, so absolutely bland, it courts inertia and thus it becomes inert.

Neither one of these guys is the man.

I was thinking it was about a C- movie: unquestionably bad, but not aggressively or annoyingly so. Then Levy's character started farting.

Now -- and here comes the important part -- you just have to remember to give either of them something remotely funny to do or say.

Whenever I see cruddy movies such as "The Man," I figured that the actors either owed somebody a favor or signed a contract.

The Man is a stale mismatched buddy comedy in which not a single interesting thing happens.

Did the film reels for The Man arrive at theaters with a white label with a blue stripe and the words "action comedy" in block letters?
