I really enjoyed the honest, gritty, truth of the movie.
Francesca
Visually, though, I kind of wanted it to match up more with the darkness the script is conveying?

I loved the scenes and onscreen chemistry between Clark Gregg and Amanda Peet.

To start off, this movie has a fantastic cast. Even the smallest parts are played well, and the leads are all stellar. I confess fully to being biased when it comes to Clark Gregg, who I already adore, and the ever-lovely Amanda Peet, but even actors I was less familiar with and the handful of newcomers really shone. Don't walk in expecting all laughs. It's a dark comedy, which means you'll feel like grabbing for the tissues as often as the popcorn. The balance between the two is handled with real grace, and what the movie sometimes lacks in subtlety, it easily makes up with substance and heart. Well worth the time and money - you won't be disappointed.

The only major problem with TRUST ME is that, from the film’s trailer and key art, it appears to be a comedy. It isn’t.

Viewers who rent or buy the release from Anchor Bay Entertainment, thinking that they are going to be laughing or, at least, chuckling throughout are going to be disappointed. Yes, there are some soft moments in TRUST ME, which might best be classified as an extremely dark satire of life in Hollywood, but they are few and far between.

Clark Gregg, who wrote and directed TRUST ME, stars as a former child actor who is now, not too successfully, agenting other child actors. Operating out of a garage, part of his problem is that whenever one of his clients is about to make it “big,” that kid gets pirated by a ruthless competing agent (Sam Rockwell).

Gregg’s fortunes appear to be changing for the better when he meets Saxon Sharbino, an amazingly talented teen actress who is about to snag the lead role in a major studio franchise. Her problem is her father (Paul Sparks), a brute who threatens to derail his daughter’s career before it gets started. Yet, there is something even more sinister going on here, which Gregg soon discovers.

TRUST ME is, in fact, a well made, quite involving movie with a couple of surprising plot twists. The cast is excellent and includes Allison Janney, Amanda Peet, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Molly Shannon and Niecy Nash.

Just don’t go into it thinking you are going to be seeing a laugh-out-loud comedy.

So Clark Gregg acts, wrote, produced n directed this film, so one can say this was his baby. He is in every shot of the film from beginning to end.
Mr. Gregg from AVENGERS nice face special agent that also acted in the previous Marvel superheroes movies like "iron man", "the Hulk" and the new ABC series based from the Avenger film gets to play a not so successful Hollywood agent for mostly kids that he feels got what it takes to make it in the business, but ending up losing them to another agent more known than him in the industry by the casting agents representing the film companies, simply because this guy makes a habit of stealing any talent prospect he finds by bribing them with new truck, or electronic gadget to either the parent of that child or and the child as well. This competition among them based back when someone they both dealt with ended up comitting suicide and each of them blames the other for it. Anyway, the film acting by Mr Gregg.and surrounding supporting cast was very good with Amanda Peet, as his love interest whom is about 20 yrs younger than him and Felicity Huffman known for roles in Juno and the new TV show Mom among other things although don't expect any funny lines coming from her in this film. William H Macy had a very small "cameo" apperiance that was over before u finish sneezing maybe for the sake of just having his name among the others that really played a role in the film. I was disappointed because as others have described in some of the reviews this movie is NO comedy! yeah there is a line here and there coming from different members of the cast at different times enough to make u smile but nothing drastically funny.

Howard (Clark Gregg) is a former child actor attempting to make it back into the film industry as a child agent. Every time he gets a prodigy, another agent (Sam Rockwell) steals the kid. He has a love interest in his neighbor (Felicity Huffman) that barely plays into the film. Suddenly the golden goose is dropped in his lap. Lydia (Saxon Sharbino) is wanted for a big lead in a series of films and demands Howard be her agent. However Lydia is not without her issues one of which is her yahoo father (Gareth Williams).

The film is classified as a comedy, or dark comedy, but I didn't find myself laughing or even smiling. The irony doesn't play its way into the film until the end and at that point it was more sad than funny. I would classify the film a drama.

Don't agents sign their clients before they negotiate for them? Just a thought.

Saxon Sharbino gives us a 5 star performance. Overall film 3 1/2 stars

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

I really wanted to love this movie. I'm a huge fan of Clark Gregg and the acting was exceptional. I think the marketing misled me into thinking this was something lighthearted and comedic. While it did have comedic moments, the story was very dark. I like these small indie movies and it's a great showcase for talent and you never know when you're going to discover that one great movie that becomes something that resonates with you. I'd really like to know what I'm getting into, or even better, go in with no expectations and be surprised. I think the marketing let this movie down and left me dissapointed with the experience.
