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.

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

As I was watching the movie, something strange happened... I started laughing.

It's all marginally funny, exciting and suspenseful, emphasis on the marginally.

The Man [is] a vehicle of canned comedic setups that yield a slight buzz of low-level, odd-coupling amusement and a few welcome spasms of belly laughs.

Eugene Levy, the most hilarious character actor on the planet, teams with stone-faced Samuel L. Jackson wonderfully.

It's Levy and his chemistry with Jackson that keeps The Man from being ho-hum.

The idea of casting the super-cool and street-smart Samuel L. Jackson with the clueless and impossibly nerdy Eugene Levy in an action buddy comedy is such an offbeat and inspired notion that it's impossible not to think of it without smiling.

It's a lot like the sweet/salty contrast in chocolate-covered peanuts. You're not going to get much nourishment from those peanuts, but that's not their job.

Forgettable, flaccid, and contrived though it may be, The Man does a nice job of simulating what might be considered an enjoyable film. Blame Samuel L. Jackson.

Though it's just another cop story, this one's watachable thanks to the two principal performers who play against each other.

Who knew Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy would make such a dynamic comic duo?

A derivative, readily-forgettable insult to the intelligence!

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.
