A nostalgic evocation of a simpler era, and perhaps the best of director Barry Levinson's quartet of Baltimore-based film reminiscences, Tin Men immortalizes a fast-talking, early-1960s breed of salesman who pushed aluminum siding. Danny DeVito and Richard Dreyfuss are two of the titular characters who, after a minor fender-bender, become mortal enemies -- and competitors. Dreyfuss even goes so far as to cuckold DeVito's wife (Barbara Hershey).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The period comedy film is a rich character study that offers a ride as smooth as a Coupe de Ville."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Irritating and painful."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Levinson's follow-up to Diner has strong characters, funny dialogue, and terrific ensemble, but the film is dramatically shapeless."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Zany and thought-provoking social comedy"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"É curioso: embora se esforce ao máximo para funcionar como comédia, este filme merece créditos por narrar o drama de dois homens de meia-idade frustrados com suas vidas."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Primo Levinson. DeVito's rarely been more human, and Dreyfuss is at his funniest."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
