Random weirdness aside, Belber telegraphs this story arc from Sue's first drop-in to Podunk. Message received. No surprises here.
Troy Melhus, Minneapolis Star Tribune  full review
 
Management has two things going for it: Steve Zahn and Jennifer Aniston. Luckily, those are two very good things.

Padding disguised as a feature-length screenplay.

Ultimately the second half completely undermined the first half.
Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies  full review
 
Zahn is essentially stalking Aniston and it's really just downright creepy.
Ben Lyons, At the Movies  full review
 
Despite the essential implausibility of the story, Management remains for the most part as endearing as its leads.

Sometimes a movie thinks it's one thing (charming) when it's really something else (creepy).
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor  full review
 
The film is a failure if it can't convince us that these two people belong together. It can't, and barely tries.
Kyle Smith, New York Post  full review
 
But if there's a point to be made here, it's that persistence pays off, whether you're onscreen or in the audience.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
 
A large part of Management's charm, [is that] it wanders through some fresh locations (Maryland, Arizona and Washington), takes some offbeat detours and just generally refuses to be predictable.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
Though it doesn't always work, it's an idea with its heart in the right place and, paired with nonshock comedy, it's a nice change of pace.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Management is ultimately undone by its own bland idiosyncrasies. It's nothing but a mismanaged opportunity.
Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com  full review
 
Management is just an average movie, but Aniston's performance is a very lovely thing.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
If it isn't half as good -- or as funny -- as its forerunners, it maintains its integrity as a small, sweet-natured comedy that refuses to obey the commercial dictates of Hollywood by allowing its characters to determine their own zany destinies.
Stephen Holden, New York Times
 
Sometimes a cute-stalker movie can win the audience's heart. Management only makes you ponder the line between true love and a restraining order.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe  full review
