Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A by-the-numbers romantic comedy."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"It may hit all-too-familiar notes, but its sureness of tone makes Mr. Schweighöfer a talent to watch."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"An unlikely and generally winning if utterly formulaic blend of male fretfulness and romantic bloom rooted in friendship... but in German!"
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"With its stock characters and low-expectation high jinks, the German import "What a Man" could have been fabricated on the Hollywood rom-com assembly line."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Notwithstanding its slavish adherence to familiar genre conventions, the film nonetheless makes for reasonably fun viewing, thanks to its off-kilter humor and the chemistry exhibited by Scheweighofer and Kekilli."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A smart, funny, sweet and well-acted romantic comedy."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"The plot is predictable, as complications line up like jets awaiting takeoff. Even the camera work is predictable ..."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"Mostly harmless but also irksome in its bland simplicity ..."
‑ Michael Nordine, Village Voice
