Trust the Man

A good cast is wasted in this tepid and coarse domestic comedy-drama about an actress (Julianne Moore), her philandering house-husband (David Duchovny), her commitment-phobic brother (Billy Crudup), and his longtime live-in girlfriend (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Writer-director Bart Freundlich's film offers the occasional sharp observation about modern-day relationships, but the characters' infidelities and casual attitude toward sex is highly problematic, despite the morally acceptable wrap-up. Much rough language, a few instances of profanity, needlessly frank sexual talk, premarital and adulterous relationships, a casual approval of pornography, a couple of sex scenes without nudity, some gratuitous scatological elements and a same-sex kiss. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
