ReviewSource Variety
Review A Hollywood agent's midcareer crisis proves a less fecund subject than one might think for writer-director Mike Binder. "Man About Town" is a highly uneven follow-up to Binder's similarly erratic "The Upside of Anger." New pic reps a major step forward for Binder's filmmaking skills, and it gives Ben Affleck a role suited to his temperament. But script is a crazy-quilt of bad and good ideas, and ridiculous story elements hinder what could have been an intelligent showbiz comedy-drama...Binder's sense of widescreen camera is outstanding, and couples with Russ Alsobrook's lensing and Pipo Wintter's production design (plus some fabulous CG effects work bridging scenes across various Los Angeles locales) for an exceptionally fine-looking pic. Occasional songs by Fredo Viola thoughtfully contribute to pic's serious side.
