Macy) transforms Bob into a new man but his good fortune is short lived when the Object of his Desire ask him to end her life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: He's [Christian Slater] still a capable actor, but seems to be having as much trouble finding good scripts as his Heathers co-star Winona Ryder. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Christian Slater's dedicated performance aside, He Was A Quiet Man tries to be both a black comedy and a drama, each ultimately undermining the other. – Tristan Burke, Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Imagine Marty if Marty had turned out to be the Unabomber and you'll have the gist of writer-director Frank Cappello's oddly compelling, pitch-black comedy. – Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Above average (just) comedy drama. – Jonathon Williams, Little White Lies, Jun 24, 2010
