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.

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.

[Has] an abundance of charm and wisdom and heart, thanks to the appealing cast and smart script...
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 outstanding cast (including Garry Shandling, Eva Mendes, Ellen Barkin, Bob Balaban and James LeGros) -- his best since 1997's The Myth of Fingerprints -- glosses over miscalculations with sheer star power.

There is a free-flowing fluidity to the performances that can't help but feel warm and authentic, the quartet at the center of this crafting beguiling and believable human portraits just screaming of reality.

Far from perfect but still somewhat enjoyable, I suppose until Woody returns to making movies here, we'll have to settle for what we can get.

Is it possible to completely loathe the premise on which a film is based, while still kind of enjoying watching it?

Captures, with both accuracy and fleeting optimism, those domestic arguments that end in either irritataed silence or half-hearted, good-enough-for-now reconciliation.
August 18, 2006
As faux Woody Allen movies go, Trust the Man is one of the more diverting recent entries in the genre, with a top-drawer cast, well-chosen Manhattan locations and a sharper script than Allen himself has managed in a while.
August 18, 2006
The real surprise is [Freundlich's] all-out Hollywood ending, with swelling music, crowds of strangers cheering the couples on, and rose petals tossed in the air ... he may have to turn in his indie card.

A movie about Manhattan yuppies whining about their love lives could have been a torturous affair, but Trust The Man is one of the funniest movies of the year.
August 17, 2006
for all that it is fluffy and simple entertainment, it's also very good.
