Trust me on this one. This is one time you can Trust The Man

"Trust The Man" is an agreeable New York-centric romantic comedy about two couples on the brink of self-destructing.

Really when you cut through all the garbage, Bart Freundlich presents us with an illusion of originality...
January 7, 2008
This rickety empty-feeling production has a script & stars that deliver lots of edgy little subtle jokes. The dialogue is crisp and crunchy, but the romance is nearly absent.
April 4, 2007
An intelligent low-brow comedy for adults.

There's no feeling of weight or consequence in a movie so shapeless it has not one but two musical montage sequences...and a "one month later" card.

I saw this at a festival and hated it, then sat through it again a year later and decided it wasn't so bad, aside from the god-awful ending.
December 13, 2006
Over the next ninety minutes or so we are treated to a series of scenes that, while often funny, seem to exist because the cast was in the same room together.
November 20, 2006
Freundlich is a pretentious film-school brat who seems obsessed with making botched retreads of the kinds of thesis pictures that people in film school like to pontificate about.

It's winter in New York and two couples symbolically battle rain, wind and snow as their relationships skid on thin ice. There are some funny lines, novel situations and for the most part, the film is amusing, even though some of the laughs are contrived
September 22, 2006
Freundlich's intelligent, very funny take on male-female relationships manages the not inconsiderable feat of being both jaded and appealingly fresh.
September 21, 2006
It's a pity, because few romcoms pull off the basically sympathetic mining of personal vanities and social embarrassment that the film manages in its opening hour.

Trust the Man has its moments but it's ultimately disappointing, despite strong performances from its excellent cast.
September 16, 2006
A relationship dramedy wields little power without an emotional punch. And when the theatrical (literally) climax attempts bold emotionality, one can't help but wince.
September 15, 2006
The finale is a screwball sequence so out of step with what comes before that it feels like part of another (but not necessarily better) movie.
September 13, 2006
The fault for this flaccid comedy lies not in Freundlich's stars, but in the way he portrays his men and women as biologically-driven boobs.
September 8, 2006
Almost a good movie by Freundlich, in fact, his best yet. Keep making 'em.

[Has] an abundance of charm and wisdom and heart, thanks to the appealing cast and smart script...
