5.0 out of 5 stars Eugene Levy has body humor down to a science! November 5, 2006
I have watched "The Man" 4 times and find something new to laugh about each time. I don't know why other people are complaining. It is not a documentary or meant to be serious. Just silly fun. Samuel Jackson is convincing as a "cop with issues" and Eugene Levy realistically portrays a "man caught in the middle" of a crime gone sideways. What is not to like?

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent.... January 19, 2006
This movie, for me, had some lower expectations, but to my surprise...this movie was really, really funny!! Both Eugene Levy and Samel L Jackson did a wonderful job with the material!! This movie had it all...and then some...action, suspense, laughs a million and great direction!! This is the kind of movie that you can just have a good time with. The script flowed really well between all the actors involved, no matter how small of a part that they did or how big. Watch THE MAN, action packed, funny as all get out movie that will have you wanting more!!

4.0 out of 5 stars very funny February 18, 2006
I never even wanted to see this movie b/c of all the bad reviews I read on it. I just figured it would be stupid. So after I had several people tell me how funny it was I decided to rent it myself. I really enjoyed it! It is not the best movie I have ever seen by far, but it is funny and very entertaining. I have come to find that the movies that have the worst reviews are the ones I end up liking the most. Give this movie a try, you will enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!! January 4, 2011
A Kid's Review
Fantastic slap stick comedy which will have you rolling on the floor. Plenty of clean and funny gags with a simple story line! Very well executed and again, lots of innocent laughs. Superb acting something rare from Hollywood lately!

3.0 out of 5 stars Humor... with a plot January 16, 2006
Derek Vann (Samuel L. Jackson) works for the A.T.F. (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) and he's the trigger-happy, untrusting, shoot-now-ask-questions-later[...]. He's on the case following some weaponry that was stolen right from the A.T.F. warehouse and will be leaving the city in 24 hours. He's contated the thieves posing as a potential buyer (after he learns that his partner is dead and the cache of guns has been stolen) and he sets up a sting to try to get the weapons back. Everything is going smoothly up until Vann is late for the meeting and the thieves mistake Andy Fidler (Eugene Levy), a talkative simpleton who gives everyone the "benefit of the doubt," for the potential buyer. Now, the two must make peace in order for Vann to take down the crooks and Fidler to make it back to his family in one piece.

"The Man" is the type of movie that would make a great rental: No so good that you should buy it, but not bad enough to miss it entirely. It's a good movie, but not one that you'd see over and over.

The acting by Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy is great. Each portrayed their character beautifully and each role seemed to fit perfectly. The dialogue is, at times, predictable and, at some other times, just plain corny. Nonetheless, it does have it's peak moments ("I'm taking a mental picture of you...[blink, blink]...") and comical value. They mix well.

I thought that it would be uproariously hilarious from start to finish, but it's not exactly like that. Although some comical moments and witty banter does appear every so often, this is not what dominates the film. I do believe that the director (and writers) did a good job of not to skew from the storyline in order to get a few cheap laughs.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man January 21, 2010
A federal agent turns up dead and a hardcore undercover agent, known as Derrick Vann heads off to try and recover the stolen arms and find the killers. Andy Fiddler is an ordinary family man and a dentist, and is out heading to a conference, when he gets stuck in the same mess. Criminal Kane believes Fiddler is 'The Man' behind it all and offers him a gun. Vann spots him and drags him across town, with him posing as the actual 'Man'. Jackson and Levy are hilariously miss-matched in two on key performances. You want laughs, and one of the most outrageous cop pairings since Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, see this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moviemania !!! January 22, 2006
When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I didn't think I'd like it very much. How can you pair Samuel Jackson & Eugene Levy together and make it watchable?

Samuel Jackson plays Special Agent Vann, a cop with an attitude. While Eugene Levy plays Andy Fiddler, a dental salesman?? Unreal.

Anyways, Vann is out to find his partners killer. And he seems to be close to nabbing them when Andy stumbles into the picture. Vann goes undercover and has set up a deal to purchase illegal weapons from some bad guys he thinks might be the ones who killed his partner.

However, Andy is mistakenly taken to be Vann. The weapons dealer gives Andy a bag containing a phone and a gun. He then tells Andy to wait for his call. Andy proceeds to open the bag to find phone and gun. A waitress at the diner they've met at sees the gun and screams "he's got a gun".

Vann walks in on this and it looks like Andy is sticking up the joint. So Vann draws his weapon. He eventually figures out that the deal went down already, only with Andy instead of himself.

So he takes Andy along with him to try and continue the deal and make things right. But things only get worse from there.

Watch and see how things turn out. Hilarious scene with Jackson and Levy in the car. Remember the word FLATULENCE.

Good humor. Funny and serious at the same time. Not bad, not great. Watch it to the finish. You'll be glad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny!
A very funny movie. Samuel L Jackson does a great job playing a tough cop alongside an innocent, "Mr. Clean" type of guy who gets thrown in with him. Both men learn a lot!
