Movieline's Hollywood Life - 07/01/2006
"Billy Crudup demonstrates his versatility in a brilliant comic turn as an aging adolescent terrified of responsibility."
Total Film - 10/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] feels real and the quality cast give a potentially flyaway film emotional heft."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2006
"[W]hat TRUST THE MAN understands really well is men, and it is in this regard that the film's light touch charms rather than harms, with spot-on depictions..."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "A grown-up romantic comedy that looks at the trappings of settling down, this is a well-acted and often witty film..."

Product Description:

A lighthearted meditation on the cares and commitments of adulthood, Bart Freundlich's rom-com drama is a witty, ultra-contemporary vision of urban love. Two Manhattan couples enjoy complicated relationships: Tom and Rebecca (David Duchovny and Julianne Moore) are a glamorous married couple with two kids and a troubled sex life; Rebecca's best friend, Elaine (Maggie Gylenhaal), is in a long-term relationship with Rebecca's brother, Tobey (Billy Crudup), who is also Tom's best friend. Tom has recently quit his advertising job to be a stay-at-home dad, and Rebecca is a successful actress with a depleting libido; thus, despite the couple's obvious closeness, Tom's porn consumption and general distraction have increased considerably. Meanwhile, Elaine juggles a stressful job in publishing and a fledgling career as a children's-book author, while Tobey's job as a copywriter is considerably less demanding. It is soon evident that Tobey has never quite grown up, and when Elaine decides that she wants to get married and have kids, she realizes she'll have to do it with someone else. The turmoil that ensues contains a number of hilarious, emotionally charged encounters between friends and lovers, and an undeniably romantic conclusion. The tale unfolds anecdotally in a style of verbal sparring that recalls Woody Allen; so too does the preponderance of recognizable New York locations, in a view of the city that makes the most of its charms. The movie also boasts well-executed cameos by Ellen Barkin as an imperious publisher, James LeGros as an eccentric songster, Eva Mendes as a temptress from Tobey's past, and Gary Shandling as an earringed therapist.
