The Trouble With Men and Women doesn't illuminate anything, including the compulsion among some filmmakers to recycle the hoariest romantic situations, in the presumed hope that a charming cast might save the day.

Kyle Smith
New York Post

A British indie as tepid as yesterday morning's tea.

Nick Schager
Slant Magazine

Ruminates about love, fidelity, and other relationship-related topics like a mopey college freshman who's just endured his or her first break-up.

Stephen Holden
New York Times

Although the setting of this tiny, well-acted movie is contemporary London, it could be any European or American city where people mate and hope for the best.

Luke Y. Thompson
Village Voice

The mostly unknown actors are charming, and while the story is formulaic, it never feels blatantly contrived.

Ken Fox
TV Guide

Fisher's characters often turn to the likes of Voltaire to make their point about the ways of the heart and the world, but it's smart enough on its own terms. It's sweet and well done, and carries a slight air of the nouvelle vague.

I won't spoil the anticlimax, but we learn love is both (a) hard and (b) sometimes right in front of you!

The characters never really come alive--they're rather unlikeable and vague, without much personality.

Honestly, this is a waste of precious DV tapes.
