Critic Reviews for Trust Me
There's a fine tradition of acerbic movies that skewer Hollywood: Think "Sunset Boulevard," "The Player" and "What Just Happened," to name a few. The dark-humored "Trust Me" is a worthy addition to the list.
There's certainly humor running through writer-director-star Clark Gregg's "Trust Me," the tale of an inept agent for child actors; it's just that not all of it feels intentional.
As long as Gregg, as both actor and director, is anatomizing the Hollywood viper pit, Trust Me rings true.
As the movie picks up speed and undergoes sudden, confusing plot reversals, it loses its satirical edge.
"Trust Me" contains so much terrific writing, acting and observation that it becomes a bit easier to forgive writer-director-star Clark Gregg when his ambitions best him during the movie's convoluted last third.
Audience Reviews for Trust Me
The humor and self loathing in the story of the Vipers pit that is the underbelly of Hollywood is one entertaining little film.
In his first original written and direction job, Clark Gregg has made a funny, smart, well-scripted, and heartfelt film in Trust Me that also has great supporting performances from its cast, especially Sharbino, as well as a great lead in Gregg himself.
Rockwell plays the smarmy bad guy so well and Gregg plays such a great down-on-his luck good guy that you just hate to see how this movie ends. This is full of wonderful storytelling with a strong cast that makes for a great viewing experience.
