A smart, sharply observed, highly affable look at contemporary relationships that finally injects a little life in the stagnating genre.
67
If a movie that uses the word "relationship" 7,000 times puts your teeth on edge, stay away.

ReelViews
Its strength is its humor, which is half-"Seinfeld" and half-"Sex in the City." There's a reason why those shows ran for only 30 minutes each - it's difficult to sustain comedic momentum for longer, as becomes apparent here.

Variety
For those who appreciate the Woody Allen view of New York but would prefer fewer neurotics, Trust the Man provides a loving take on bourgeois Manhattan contentment that's usually only found in episodes of "Will & Grace."
50
Chicago Tribune
Trust the Man could easily carry the following subtitle: "Men Who Behave Like Petulant, Spoiled Children and the Women Who Decide It's Easier to Love Them As-Is Than To Try to Turn Them Into Grownups."
50
Trust the Man quickly begins to feel hopelessly derivative of other, better movies.
42
The A.V. Club
Trust The Man presents itself as a funny, insightful Manhattan relationship comedy in Woody Allen mode, but morphs into the phoniest of Hollywood rom-coms.

Entertainment Weekly
Can these banal relationships between undifferentiated lovelies be saved?
40
L.A. Weekly
Emerges a weakling comedy of manners.
20
Village Voice
Writer-director Bart Freundlich (Moore's husband) has nothing to say and nowhere to go with this material, except to the most contrived ending this side of a "Will & Grace" episode.
