Written and Directed by Mike Binder.
A top hollywood agent finds his cushy existence threatened when he discovers that his wife is cheating on him and that his journal has been swiped by a reporter out to bring him down.

"Satire with several targets is a marvellous way to entertain a savvy audience...great actors.  Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"...the line between philosophy and farce, satire and slapstick...  Vince Leo, Qwipster's Movie Reviews

Editor's Note
Ben Affleck stars in this lighthearted comedy as Jack, a slick Hollywood agent with his work all in line but his personal life in shambles. When he signs up for a self-help course, his colleague gets wind of it, and he finds his attempts at self-improvement are the source of the world's laughter. Directed by Mike Binder, MAN ABOUT TOWN also stars Rebecca Romijn and John Cleese.

Expert Review Man About Town - DVD
By: Christopher Null filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/14/2007 5:42 AM
Yeah, that's Ben Affleck grinning out at you from the cover of this direct-to-DVD release, but don't let that turn you off of the film completely. Man About Town may be rehashed from Jerry Maguire, Taking Care of Business, and, well, about a half-dozen other well-trodden slapstick comedies, but don't let that get you down. Mike Binder, whose The Upside of Anger was a quiet gem just a year earlier, has enough of a sense of humor to overcome the Affleck-induced malaise that you might otherwise be expecting....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Variety 7 of 10
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. - Robert Koehler
