The chattering salesman and the curse-crazy cop never click, but they have their moments.

There are only a few genuine laughs in The Man, separated by long moments of pondering the many ways you could have spent your 90 minutes and nine bucks.

The inescapable fact about The Man is that this movie is completely unnecessary.

Cop buddy comedies demand a framework for their antics, and that's where The Man stumbles.

As generic as its title, this drearily predictable and tushie-obsessed buddy cop movie wastes more talent in less time than straight-to-video releases.

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

"The Man's" nebulous title indicates the sloppy nature of an "action comedy" movie that emits painfully little of either genre enticement.

In Roy Orbison terms, enduring this movie is like working for The Man.

How far must these vets have fallen to endure two farting scenes, a peeing-in-the-pool scene, and repeated use of the phrase, "you're my *****."

...scattered traces of bickering, bantering and belligerence without an ounce of constructive energy to make this sassy salt-n-pepper actioner a palatable diversion

this movie was so bad, I woke up the next morning with a horrible cold ... The germs must have jumped into my body as I sat mouth agape at how dreadful this movie is.

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.

A boring, all-you-can-regurgitate buffet of buddy-movie/cop-movie banality, it would collapse under the weight of its own generic stupidity (without) Jackson and Levy.

It takes filmmakers of rare skill to make the reliable Eugene Levy unamusing and to reduce Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson to a series of angry poses.
