A Funny Little Love Story of Manager And A Painting Seller
I did not know what to expect of 'Management' but seeing that Steve
Zahn and Jennifer Aniston star in it together, I wanted to see it.
'Management' is an unconventional romantic comedy but not the
saccharine glossy kind that Hollywood churns out by dozens every year.
Belber's film is rather subtle and atmospheric while also character
driven. The humour is dry. In a way it reminded me of '500 Days of
Summer' in the way it's treated but 'Management' very much tells its
Zahn and Aniston form an odd pair which is one of the other things that
attracted me towards these movies. I tend to prefer unusual romantic
comedies that centre around odd couples formed by a refreshing pair of
actors (such as Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek in 'Fools Rush In' or
Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson in 'Benny and Joon'). Zahn is
first rate as the goofy motel manager who was once popular. Aniston
delivers a restrained performance showing her growth as an actress.
Margo Martindale, Woody Harrelson and James Hiroyuki Liao lend fine
The execution is wonderful. The soundtrack is terrific and the visuals
are photogenic and bring about a lyrical feel. They are suitably
underused as to not intrude. The editing, cinematography and light
effects are well done.
Stephen Belber has made a charming and funny little movie. 'Management'
is an underrated little gem.

the movie very excelennnt... hmmmm.
After reading Roger Eberts review (3 Stars) I decided to check this
movie....and I did enjoy the movie! It had some very funny moments.
Mostly because of Zahn's great and subtle comedic timing and his
straight subjective: I want her and I get her, no matter what. Jennifer
Aniston plays a sales woman and rejects him, but he "just keeps showing
up - like UPS".
Even though this is a funny romantic comedy it seems more for guys who
from time to time watch these kind of movies...just my guess, since
Zahn's not a typical heartthrob leading man ;) Maybe that's why this
movie made peanuts at the box office.
I also like Zahn's innocent character as a guy who can't hurt a fly,
but is also often kind of fearless. Even though Aniston plays the tough
one, it turns out, that his character really is the one who sort of has
it all together. And his social skills are much better than hers.
A little bit deeper character development and more obvious emotional
stakes and this could have been a great and funny independent movie. A
little bit more over the top and it could have been a great romantic
comedy. But it's somehow in-between. The movie gets 6.5 stars from. It
made me rent Sahara because of Zahn, where he also has some funny
