Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Overachieving actress, Rebecca (Moore), must come to grips with her failing marriage to stay-at-home dad, Tom (Duchovny). While Rebecca's slacker brother, Tobey (Billy Crudup), can't seem to commit to his aspiring novelist girlfriend, Elaine (Maggie Gyllenhaal). As both relationships spin out of control, the two couples embark on a hilarious quest to rediscover the magic and romance of falling in love in New York.

Amazon.com

For a sex comedy, Bart Freundlich's fourth feature Trust the Man takes many of its cues from 1980s-era Woody Allen, but is neither as sexy nor as funny as intended. It's the tale of two couples. Rebecca (Julianne Moore, Freundlich's real-life wife) is an actress. Her husband, Tom (David Duchovny, Moore's Evolution co-star), is a stay-at-home dad, much like Patrick Wilson's character in the considerably darker Little Children. The Manhattan dwellers have two kids. Fellow New Yorker Elaine (Maggie Gyllenhaal), an aspiring author, lives with Rebecca's brother, Tobey (Billy Crudup, sporting an ill-advised goatee), a sports writer. They've been together for seven years. Elaine is ready for marriage and a baby; Toby, not so much. Both men have roving eyes, Tom for single mother Pamela (Dagmara Dominczyk) and Tobey for ex-girlfriend Faith (Eva Mendes), a newlywed. Rebecca and Elaine, in their sincerity, may be more sympathetic, but all they ever seem to talk about is their unsatisfactory sex lives. Naturally, something has to give and it does--for all four. On the downside, Trust the Man finds Freundlich in a bit of a holding pattern. In retrospect, domestic drama The Myth of Fingerprints, Freundlich's first film, is still the writer/director's best. Though James LeGros and Duchovny pal Garry Shandling provide amusing cameos, the main reason to catch Trust the Man is for Duchovny himself in his most fully realized role since the inimitable Agent Fox Mulder--oddly likable despite his many faults. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Customer Reviews

"My friends at work, tell me men are never ready for marriage or kids, that you have to trap them into it."
M. Sanew
Just as the film seems as though it might actually have something to say about these characters, it resorts to broad comedy.
thornhillatthemovies.com
The story is very slow, the characters are not interesting enough for you to care, and it definitely not funny.

Wity writing, and characters that are allowed to have some flaws made this one of the first chick flicks that did not make me want to vomit. Heck I actually enjoined it.... for the most part. It does end with the usual formualic, come to jesus ending. But over all still enjoyable.

The creative funny backenforth give plenty of entertainment while the storyline sets it self up.

The characters are not the usual black and white images of perfection or sleazy bastreds which makes them much more relateable. As well as making the story seem less absurd.

While probably unintentional the movie also provides interesting examples of the differences between the way men and women communicate. The men always tiring to fix the things the women complain about instead of just listening, and the women getting upset when the men do not just intuitively know what they want even though they never say.

All in all the first chick flick/ feel good movie that not only did not make me want to vomit, but that I actually enjoined in years.

...based on the reviews here. Much of the credit for my surprise should go to the cast: all very good. I find it interesting to watch excellent actors (Moore, Duchovny, Barkin) flesh out new characters. Overall, despite flaws, this film is intelligent, and fresh just often enough to be worth watching. I cared about the fate of the two couples, particularly the Gyllenhall/Crudup duo. Sure, there were cliches, as in another parody of 12-Step and other support groups, and the "biological clock ticking" bit. However, as in the case of the latter, there's truth at the heart of many of these. If Trust the Man ended a bit more "Hollywood"/all loose ends resolved, I'd have thrown my shoe at the screen. Anyway, here's one little negative postcript: Amazon makes it look like the magnetic Ellen Barkin has a major role - unfortunately, not the case.

Giving it 5 cause I believe it has been way under rated. I believe the object was to laugh, and it was entertaining.

Besides I feel it did address valid points that many people shy away from, death, living life, etc.

It wasn't earth shattering, I still found it enjoyable!!!

I watched this on HBO and I would pay $5 or $6 to own it (for others to watch.) Its not a movie that you would want to spend $20 for or go to the movies to watch but worth a watch- I think its a good depiction of life. I enjoyed it though its not really a comedy or romantic but its a good portrayal of life and its issues in relationships and the such. Good premise and execution. I agree with the reviewer who said that it was under rated.

Attractive people, great NYC scenes and apartments, but none of that could save this horrible poorly written mess of lousy, immature male characters, bland and clueless female characters, and extremely childish bathroom jokes. I could not even watch 2/3 rds of it. Really bad.

With all this talent in the mix, it would have been nice if this film had risen above mediocrity, but I still found it reasonably entertaining. There are a few laugh-out-loud scenes (my fave was Julianne Moore's passive-aggressive compliance with her husband's request that she narrate a porn video) and some clever theater references, and the rest is a string of bland and/or saccharine relationship cliches, but the cast is very attractive and I enjoyed the indie sound track.

The Bottom Line:

As one of the three or four people in America who saw this movie in theatres, I am qualified to say that Trust the Man is really not worth spending money on; however, it should be said that while the film is forgettable and formulaic, it also offers enough laughs that you could do worse if one of your friends suggests watching it.
