If the 50ish lead is a 'Solitary Man' I am a hermit. He had more 'friends' and bed-mates than I've had since I was in my mid-50's; and, I haven't been with my girlfriends' 18 year old daughter. This was another chance for Douglas to show what an arrogant snob he is. Remember, Michael, 'The meek shall inherit the earth.'

the ending reminded me of the story in JHS, "Lady or the Tiger" Which door does the prince choose?

The New York Times
A sharp, small-scale comedy of male misbehavior that turns out to be one of this dreary spring's pleasant cinematic surprises. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
What joy it is to watch the man (Douglas) slime himself on camera. Full Review

It's Douglas' movie - and you've got a fine movie. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Solitary Man gives Douglas a chance to act, not merely posture or show off for the camera. It's some of the finest, least forced work he has done in years. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The film's real shocker is its unpleasantness. Full Review
