Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's a fine tradition of acerbic movies that skewer Hollywood: Think "Sunset Boulevard," "The Player" and "What Just Happened," to name a few. The dark-humored "Trust Me" is a worthy addition to the list."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"As the movie picks up speed and undergoes sudden, confusing plot reversals, it loses its satirical edge."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It is a smart, funny, endearing, and entertaining glimpse into a part of Hollywood rarely depicted in film."
‑ Zach Hollwedel, Under the Radar
"Trust Me is a great offering from Clark Gregg that really puts the man's skill - in writing, directing, and performing - on proud display."
‑ Cliff Wheatley, IGN Movies
"Its perky poster notwithstanding, "Trust Me" is a putatively hard-edged comedy that promises to turn into something harder."
‑ Glenn Kenny,
"There's certainly humor running through writer-director-star Clark Gregg's "Trust Me," the tale of an inept agent for child actors; it's just that not all of it feels intentional."
‑ Bill Edelstein, Variety
""Trust Me" contains so much terrific writing, acting and observation that it becomes a bit easier to forgive writer-director-star Clark Gregg when his ambitions best him during the movie's convoluted last third."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Despite solid performances, the cast can't inject much sympathy into these characters or their self-indulgent plight."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"A grim portrait of an agent for young actors who takes his best shot at success in the nasty and venal Hollywood film community."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A smart, sardonic, unpredictable morality play that gets the little things right."
‑ Nick Schager, The Dissolve
"As long as Gregg, as both actor and director, is anatomizing the Hollywood viper pit, Trust Me rings true."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"[Gregg] makes a tonally disastrous swerve ..."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Seems forced into much darker territory in its final act. Gregg provides a prologue to foreshadow it, but it still doesn't quite fit."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"Really can't compete on any level, being insipid and mean-spirited."
‑ Kristy Puchko,
"A surprisingly tough little movie about the reality of child actors in Hollywood."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
