Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The Man isn't great entertainment, but it contains enough laughter-provoking material to make it worth a look - although home video is probably the best bet, since the pointless plot development scenes can then be conveniently fast forwarded through.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The inescapable fact about 'The Man' is that this movie is completely unnecessary. Nobody needed to make it, nobody needs to see it, Jackson and Levy are too successful to waste time with it. It plays less like a film than like a deal.
