"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...

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.

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.

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.

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

Freundlich's intelligent, very funny take on male-female relationships manages the not inconsiderable feat of being both jaded and appealingly fresh.

Trust the Man has its moments but it's ultimately disappointing, despite strong performances from its excellent cast.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Trust me, a Woody Allen film it is not.

September 5, 2006
David Duchonvy and Julianne Moore make an engaging double-act and an undercurrent of droll humour keeps things zipping along quite amiably for the most part.

Freundlich's insights weave through the bathroom en route to the bedroom, (and) conversations almost always return to excrement.

You know you're in trouble when an allegedly adult romantic comedy begins with a fart joke.
