Abysmal, one of those dumbed-into-the-gutter farces in which the hero keeps having to do things like crawl out a second-story window and onto a tree branch.
Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly
Much of it plays like a confused, desperate rehash of [Meet the Parents].
Stephen Holden — New York Times
(A Guy Thing movie review at Guardian [UK])
Dean Essner — Guardian [UK]
There's enough chemistry between the leads, a few ludicrous plot twists and a fair amount of laughs to entertain audiences.
Claudia Puig — USA Today
[Tries] desperately to lower the bar for scatological gags, rank sexual humor and cheap physical shots.
Ann Hornaday — Washington Post
For about 10 minutes, it works.
Desson Thomson — Washington Post
Some of the gags are solid, but this sort of thing lives or dies on the strength of its cast, and, unfortunately, the leads are playing against their own strengths.
Ty Burr — Boston Globe
The three move through a faded deck of cliches ... with a convincing impression of having fun, helped along by a snazzy '60s-'70s soundtrack and bit-part fillips.
Anya Kamenetz — Village Voice
With its heavy-handed approach to light material, it falls on its face as often as Lee's hapless character.
Bruce Westbrook — Houston Chronicle
A painful comedy of errors that wastes an agreeable cast.
Philip Wuntch — Dallas Morning News
Though A Guy Thing has a good cast and some funny moments, there's something forced and a little frowzy about the way it's put together.
Michael Wilmington — Chicago Tribune
Manages more than a few laughs.
Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer
A romantic comedy that's as completely predictable as it is eminently forgettable.
Tom Long — Detroit News
Here's a rule of thumb: If the coincidences in your movie have longer odds than Carrot Top perfecting cold fusion, you might be straining the old believability factor.
Bill Muller — Arizona Republic
(A Guy Thing movie review at Variety)
Dennis Harvey — Variety
A better date movie than you might expect.
Lou Lumenick — New York Post
It's just off enough to lumber along.
Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel
A bale of romantic fluff that is a lot funnier than it has any right to be.
Peter Howell — Toronto Star
A laugh, several laughs, are not only expected but flat-out demanded. Try as I might, I couldn't produce any. Let's hope you have better luck.
Rick Groen — Globe and Mail
Stumbles along laboriously, its jokes following one after another in a sloppy, flat-footed walk.
