The plot gets unnecessarily complicated... and the movie takes a trip into noir territory that doesn't fit with the earlier established tone.

If only Trust Me had confidence in its own comedy, it wouldn't have to borrow someone else's pain.

...the final third of Trust Me winds up being so misguided, compared to the overly familiar first hour, that the entire affair just feels noxious.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
June 2, 2014
Almost none of the film's characters or scenarios escape feeling contrived under writer-director-star Clark Gregg's bizarro tonal shifts and plot developments.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
June 9, 2014
Really can't compete on any level, being insipid and mean-spirited.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 11, 2014
Trust me, you can skip Clark Gregg's second feature, as it's nothing but a muddled showbiz satire that never finds its tone or momentum.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 8, 2014
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.
June 5, 2014
Dramatically, Trust Me goes from stability to seppuku. It's the kind of picture that could be shut off at the hour mark and nothing would be missed.

June 4, 2014
This small film's momentum ... like the childhood career of its protagonist - gradually sputters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 20, 2014
Seems forced into much darker territory in its final act. Gregg provides a prologue to foreshadow it, but it still doesn't quite fit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 5, 2014
As the movie picks up speed and undergoes sudden, confusing plot reversals, it loses its satirical edge.
June 5, 2014
As Trust Me gets twistier and more serious, it also veers toward pity for its central character (which reads as self-pity for the filmmaker, fairly or not).
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 30, 2014
Despite solid performances, the cast can't inject much sympathy into these characters or their self-indulgent plight.
June 5, 2014
[Gregg] makes a tonally disastrous swerve ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 6, 2014
Its perky poster notwithstanding, "Trust Me" is a putatively hard-edged comedy that promises to turn into something harder.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 15, 2017
For such a small film, Gregg has assembled a formidable cast.
August 4, 2014
It is a smart, funny, endearing, and entertaining glimpse into a part of Hollywood rarely depicted in film.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

Trust Me is a great offering from Clark Gregg that really puts the man's skill - in writing, directing, and performing - on proud display.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.6/10
May 12, 2014
[...] a smart, sardonic, unpredictable morality play that gets the little things right.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 4, 2014
If Trust Me is any indicator, Gregg is a talented budget director of surprisingly downbeat, tonally staid, wholly effective tragedies.
