Movie Info

Trust Me tells the sharp, comic story of Howard Holloway, a down-on-his luck agent for child actors and truly one the last good guys left in Hollywood. After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy, he is poised to close the deal of a lifetime which would catapult his tween client and, at long last, himself, into the big time. With the support of his gorgeous new neighbor, he must wrangle the actress' volatile, overprotective father, dodge a scheming producer, and outwit his uber-slick nemesis. As he arrives on the brink of the Hollywood dream that's eluded him for a lifetime, he begins to sense that his innocent young starlet may not be quite what she seems.

Critic Reviews for Trust Me

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (12)

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.

Its perky poster notwithstanding, "Trust Me" is a putatively hard-edged comedy that promises to turn into something harder.

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

One of the better movies that sheds light on the underbelly of Hollywood, yet still there's a sense of bitterness towards its mediocre script. Clark Gregg was brilliant in his performance which was completely out of his element compared to previous roles and might've been the only notable amidst the glum events and disappointing ending.

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.
