Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's more to Stephen Belber's debut than just manufactured whimsy, not least a wise and witty script, and some beautifully sketched side characters supporting two reliably charming leads."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"The trademark hitch in Aniston's line delivery is an effective shorthand for taking a leap of faith. In the case of both her character and her career, Management represents an admirable choice."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"A completely uproarious one-liner about Joe Strummer is still no reason to watch "Management." Had it stuck with insights on loners inadvertently backing themselves into emotional corners, rather than going for wackiness, it might have worked."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Not the funny, sunny romp the trailer promises, but a weary, weak attempt at romantic comedy that's far from feelgood."
‑ Anne Wollenberg, Film4
"Doing nothing to disprove the so-called Curse Of Friends is haphazard rom-com Management."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"You watch Management thinking of the comedy Aniston and Zahn could have made, and wishing you were watching that movie instead."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Management has two things going for it: Steve Zahn and Jennifer Aniston. Luckily, those are two very good things."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Forget logic here, there's a good cast, nice chemistry and warm feelings all around as they all fumble around for something to bring meaning to their lives."
‑ Sean Axmaker,
"For the most part, Management avoids the standard rom-com clichés in favour of something more delicate and heartfelt."
‑ Toby Young, Times [UK]
"Unable to decide between being a romantic comedy, a zany farce or a thoughtful study of two emotionally repressed losers finding fulfilment, it ends up a mess; but an intriguing mess."
‑ Martin Hoyle, Financial Times
"Random weirdness aside, Belber telegraphs this story arc from Sue's first drop-in to Podunk. Message received. No surprises here."
‑ Troy Melhus, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Padding disguised as a feature-length screenplay."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"So-so romcom about unlikely couple isn't too racy for teens."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Despite the obvious Norman Bates-ish resemblance, Zahn is clearly supposed to be dishy. The Zahn/Aniston pairing is without chemistry and there frankly isn't a spark of real life in the whole film."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Zahn is adorable and Jennifer Aniston brings an endearing tartness to Sue but even their best efforts don't redeem the muddle of Management."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
