    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Arrives in theaters today with a sheet over its head and a tag on its toe. So to speak. What we have here is a complete systemic failure, a comedy that's not funny, with action that's not thrilling. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Levy and Jackson save the day, and the film. The Man isn't great entertainment, but it contains enough laughter-provoking material to make it worth a look. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Nobody needed to make it, nobody needs to see it, Jackson and Levy are too successful to waste time with it. It plays less like a film than like a deal. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Yet another screwed-up mess that will give audiences another excuse to shun the multiplexes this weekend. show more
