Federal Agent Derrick Vann (Samuel L. Jackson) walks the walk, while affable dental supply salesman Andy Fidler (Eugene Levy) talks and talks in the odd couple action comedy The Man. A case of mistaken identity forces the mismatched duo to team up and sets off an intense and hilarious adventure as they speed through the streets of Detroit to pull off a sting operation and solve the murder of Vann’s former partner.

Everything worth doing has already been done. But there's no harm in doing it again. Just realize, even if it's produced better or buffed to perfection, that euphoria of never having seen anything like it before is an impossible feeling to reactivate. Despite what you could say in defense of any given film that comes out nowadays, there's always going to be something (most likely a lot of things) to compare it too. We've reached the point in film history where everything is a rip-off of a rip-off of a remake that came from an idea on a TV show. And that's definitely how you could categorize THE MAN.
The production notes wave this off as an homage to Midnight Run. It reminds me more of The In-Laws, especially since Eugene Levy dabbles in Dentistry equipment and Alan Arkin, himself, was a dentist. The connection is there, but I haven't heard mention of that film in advertising. Maybe because the remake sucked so bad and they don't want to bring it up in mixed company or have The Man associated with Micheal Douglas-esque slapstick. Yeah? Probably.Read More
