It's an intelligent and thought-provoking romantic comedy.

Its otherwise straightforward narrative does what it can to revive the corpse of grown-up romance, with just enough surrealism to save the film from its more serious impulses.

Valiant effort, but someone should have begged for a rewrite.
| Original Score: 3/5

A small film about a high school teacher in an elite Manhattan prep school, but it's filled with large doses of wit and insight.

The Treatment finds its agreeable pace. We've heard this particular story before, but it holds up to a skilled retelling.

Oren Rudavsky's adaptation of Daniel Menaker's novel is a quietly enjoyable romantic comedy for adults who like to see characters acting like adults.

This film is so much more believable, amusing and entertaining than the crap we had to listen to in 'Knocked Up'.

Janssen is an intense screen presence. Too often she's stuck playing humorless towering antagonists. Here, happily, she's allowed to be a real person.

Eigeman has been in training for this kind of thing for years, but the pleasant surprise is Janssen, who shows a gift for clever dialogue. This is light fare, but it's smart, enjoyable light fare.

...our emotional involvement remains superficial, and we never get that sense of uplift that Allen's better romantic city tales have given us.

Considering the furious pace at which Allen himself cranks out second-rate comedies these days, why bother with a limp imitation?

Having an affair of the heart...and mind.

Treatment has small intentions, but its friendliness and caution with melodrama makes it a swell change of pace from other neurotic essays on self-absorption.

The Treatment is richest when it zooms in on the testy co-dependence between analyst and analysand. It's high time for a comedy about the decline and fall of traditional psychoanalysis.

The Treatment feels too much like an indulgence.
