Ratings & Reviews

  • The plot is predictable, as complications line up like jets awaiting takeoff. Even the camera work is predictable: The attractive-girl's-scary-boyfriend-suddenly-pops-up shot; the morning-after, face-in-the-pillow shot. show more

  • It may hit all-too-familiar notes, but its sureness of tone makes Mr. Schweighöfer a talent to watch. show more

  • While the idea of a German romantic comedy may seem like an oxymoron, What a Man proves an amiable diversion that at least has the distinction of not starring Katherine Heigl or Kate Hudson. show more
