Critic Reviews for The Leading Man

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Begins as a backstage story about the London theater world, and then a little Hitchcockian intrigue edges into the frame.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Jon Bon Jovi, with his fiendishly angelic smile, thick, unruly locks, and piercing, flirtatious orbs, is slowly grooming himself for stardom.

January 2, 2003

A dark but frequently delightful comedy of manners.
