Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dreadful acting, direction and script."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"If Nowhere Man isn't as consistent as McCann's excellent 2001 feature Revolution #9, it further establishes him as an unpredictable, uncompromising talent working well beneath the industry radar."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"It's the kind of aimless junk the creators like to label "dark comedy," except it's never funny."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Not since Paul Verhoeven's The Fourth Man has a film produced such castration anxiety."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"This deliberately repugnant thriller is told from one distraught man's perspective, as he copes with the emasculating impact of love."
‑ Ned Martel, New York Times
"Tim McCann's witty video cheapster takes its squirmy premise both at face value and as deadpan metaphor."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"...the cheap look and the intensity of the actors involved give the movie a darkness that effectively counteracts the juvenile humor"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Los Angeles CityBeat
"both Rodrick and Rochon are engaging beyond the quality of the material, especially Rochon, who ought to get some real roles in Hollywood before she burns out"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"The bleak absurdity of its predicaments cries out for a tone of pitch-dark comedy to stave off the unintended laughter that it is virtually certain to elicit."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Less a nod to the Beatles song than to avenging spouse trimmer Lorena Bobbitt, the film pits the two most off putting male fantasies toe to toe - eunuch and porn stud - and just kinda lays back to watch the fur fly."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"An unpleasant slog to an unrewarding conclusion that feels far longer than it is."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"If you're into nasty little revenge tales shot on muddy video, this flick may provide a fix. All others have been warned."
