Newsweek
Kaufman's new script isn't as inspired as "Malkovich." It's a precious little concoction -- the B-plus work of a madcap genius.
75
The result is a satisfying and original picture.

The A.V. Club
Nature lacks a little of Malkovich's freshness, but that's just about all it lacks.
63
Boston Globe
It's just weirdness for the sake of weirdness, and where ''Human Nature'' should be ingratiating, it's just grating.
60
Washington Post
In truth, I didn't care much for it, while respecting it a great deal. It's self-consciously childish and "innocent," and everything is overdrawn to cartoon dimension.

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
Washington Post
After some promising leaps, bounds and swings through a fascinating jungle of possibility, Charlie Kaufman's movie misses an all-important creeper.
40
L.A. Weekly
Although a few moments are hilarious, this would-be romp remains laboriously earthbound when it should be swinging gaily through the trees.
40
A goofball movie, in the way "Malkovich" was, but it tries too hard.

Charlotte Observer
Feeble, vapid picture.
