New York Daily News
Manages to tackle some serious issues without sacrificing its inherently sweet nature.

Furtado's comic thriller is a telling commentary on modern avarice in Brazil and elsewhere, which touches on everything from "The Simpsons" to "Rear Window" along the way. Too bad it runs out of ideas before the overlong story is over.
70
An enjoyable ride.
63
What could have been an effervescent 90-minute experience is so in love with the sound of its own voice that it develops genre trouble and piddles on for two-plus hours.

New York Post
An unassuming love comedy with plot problems.
60
It's too fundamentally light-hearted to wallow in grinding poverty and despair.

The A.V. Club
There's at least one good movie in The Man Who Copied's 124 minutes, but Furtado never settles on it.
50
Two movies in one, but it's no bargain. A charming romantic comedy... transforms awkwardly into a hedonistic crime thriller, with the two genres violently butting heads.
50
This ambitious and sometimes entertaining Brazilian feature tries to pull off a tricky maneuver but doesn't quite get it done.
25
Chicago Tribune
A sad, wasted movie.
