Wall Street Journal
A hoot, or at least a collection of delightful hootlets hung on a short, frayed line.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie has nowhere much to go and nothing much to prove, except that Stephen King is correct and if you can devise the right characters and the right situation, the plot will take care of itself -- or not, as the case may be.
75
The result is a satisfying and original picture.

New York Daily News
Fresh and often very funny, and it makes its point that when our native urges conflict with social norms, the former shall give in to the latter, or else.

New York Post
A treat for aficionados of oddball movies.
63
It's just weirdness for the sake of weirdness, and where ''Human Nature'' should be ingratiating, it's just grating.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Human Nature's zigzag ingenuity wears out some time before the farce bounces slowly to an uneven conclusion. For all its highfalutin title and corkscrew narrative, the movie turns out to be not much more than a shaggy human tale.

Entertainment Weekly
The movie is too cute to take itself too seriously, but it still feels like it was made by some very stoned college students.
50
Tries for both civilized wit and primitive joy -- and mostly misses both.

Every single frame of this film is as cute, slick, and snappy as the adorable little mice who end the movie with a gag right out of "Babe: Pig in the City."

Miami Herald
The best stuff in Human Nature comes early, while the movie is still spry and daring --Then the film runs out of ideas, repetition sets in and so does boredom.
40
A goofball movie, in the way "Malkovich" was, but it tries too hard.
