The three main performances are what carry the film

May 4, 2007
An offbeat and slightly passť take on the mental health profession along with romantic-comedy filler that lacks whimsy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 29, 2007
While it has an understated poise, the film's portrait of inner male turmoil isn't particularly unique or profound.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The Treatment is a movie with its heart and head in the right place. Too bad its aesthetic sensibilities and technical coordinates are not as well situated.

The Treatment, a wan effort at Annie Hall-style comedy, has about as much Manhattan sophistication as a gas station in Chippewa Falls, Wis.

Valiant effort, but someone should have begged for a rewrite.

The Treatment feels too much like an indulgence.

July 5, 2007
...our emotional involvement remains superficial, and we never get that sense of uplift that Allen's better romantic city tales have given us.
May 19, 2007
The guy we need to love and respect and give our sypathies to -- the center of the untherapeutic little comedy/drama -- isn't in this movie.

May 1, 2007
This offbeat charmer succumbs to the same airless artificiality that has claimed many recent efforts in the genre.
June 23, 2007
Considering the furious pace at which Allen himself cranks out second-rate comedies these days, why bother with a limp imitation?

Who wants to behave well in bed?

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

Funny and biting, The Treatment works, at least, as a drama with clever romantic comedy elements.

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.

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.

February 1, 2008
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.
June 14, 2007
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.

Chris Eigeman finally gets to show his range in this romantic comedy.

The film works familiar territory -- the romantic lives of neurotic well-educated New Yorkers -- yet never feels stale.
