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!!

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Some people haven't a sense of humor, obviously. November 12, 2006
I watched this movie on HBO this evening for the first time and absolutely loved it! I don't see how anyone could give this flick such a low rating -- because it's funny! Maybe a little predicatable at times, but that added to the comedy. Don't listen to the 2 star people. They obviously don't have a sense of humor.

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Turk January 8, 2007
Personally I enjoy the comedic dramas like this. If you are a fan of movies like "Midnight Run" and "Stakeout" you will probably enjoy it. Samuel Jackson is great in a dramatic role as an ATF officer trying to track down the gunrunners that killed his partner and are selling the large shipment of guns they stole. Eugene Levy is pretty comical as the wrong man in the right place at the wrong time. He adds the comedic element to the movie as a dentist going to a convention in Detroit. When he gets mistaken for a gun buyer he ends up assisting Jackson, if you could call it that, in dealing with the gunnrunners. Nice mix of drama and humor and a decent story make it worth renting or even buying if you like comedy/drama cop movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny? Sure. Genius? February 15, 2006
It's easy to see why the producers thought mixing action hero Jackson with perennial dork Levy would be hilarious. They're both great at what they do, and could have been great in this movie if only the script hadn't gotten in the way. Unfortunately, while "The Man" does have funny moments, there just aren't enough of them -- and they aren't nearly funny enough -- to make this a real keeper. As happens way too often these days, in fact, if you've seen the preview, you've seen 99% of the funny stuff.

On top of that, EVERYTHING else about the movie is stale formulae. There are no twists or turns you won't expect, the Internal Affairs cop is exactly the same as every IA cop you've ever seen -- which is a huge waste of Miguel Ferrer's talents -- and the "case" they work on is phony at every level.

That brings us to the core problem with "The Man": There's not enough of a real, new story for it to be an action film with funny partners, like "Lethal Weapon," and it's not funny enough to throw all logic out the window and just laugh at the nonsense, like "Airplane" or "Bowfinger." (It's also not original enough to overcome such categories.) And one would think that the DVD itself might save the day by providing a bunch of side-splitting outtakes or something, but no luck there, either...just the same mediocrity in alternate formats.

So...yes, I do suggest you see it. Your video store will have several copies available. But buy it? Only the most hard core Samuel L. Jackson or Eugene Levy fan would do that. Which would probably make either of these good-natured actors call YOU "The Man," regardless of your gender, for your completely unearned show of support.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man (DVD) February 10, 2006
This year has been a bizarre year for movies. It literally has some of the best and worst things I've seen in a while. The year started off rocky, but things really picked up during the summer. While there may be fewer five-star movies out there, this summer was a great time to see some really good films.

However, once Labor Day passes, we pass into the doldrums of the fall. Kids are back in school, so there are fewer of them at the multiplex. The big summer blockbusters have all been released, and the holiday films are still several months away. Same goes for the Oscar nods that tend to flood the market in the winter.

Some say that late August and early September are the darkest days for movies, and that's usually true. It certainly was for the last few weeks with movies like "A Sound of Thunder" and "The Cave" stinking up the joint. I had little confidence that "The Man," a fish-out-of-water buddy cop movie starring Eugene Levy and Samuel L. Jackson, was going to be different.

In fact, I said to a friend before seeing it, "This has `suck' written all over it."

However, as I was watching the movie, something strange happened... I started laughing. Does this mean that "The Man" is a great movie? No. It doesn't even mean it was a good movie. It just made me laugh.

The movie itself is beyond preposterous. Eugene Levy plays a dental equipment salesman who stumbles into an arms deal orchestrated by an ATF officer played by Samuel L. Jackson. They're stuck together as a bickering couple until they can bring down the bad guys. The stars play exactly to type. Eugene Levy reprises the roles he played in films like "American Pie" and "Waiting for Guffman." Samuel L. Jackson gives us the honest cop take on his character Jules from "Pulp Fiction.
