Dallas Morning News:
Many of [Altman's] observations have the strength of truth softened by indulgence and ultimate acceptance.
New York Times:
The slightly anachronistic absurdity of the conceit -- the travails of a lone gentleman in a world of ladies -- gives the actors room to do some wonderful work.
There's the kernel of an intriguing idea that we can almost grasp, but it's lost in the morass of expertly staged but irrelevant scenes.
A surprisingly spry and funny film with a solidly serious core.
Lacks the resonance of a major Altman film ... but it's a funny and ebullient look at a man in full confusion.
While it's impossible to call anything fashioned by a man of Altman's skill unwatchable, there are times when this pedantic and dull effort comes close.
What holds the stories and the characters together is the decency of Dr. T, and Gere seems wholly comfortable with the role.
Dr. T raises some seductive questions ... and mixes them up in a madcap and outlandish blender swirl. Through the murk, it's often hard to see the movie's heart.
Altman and his congenially matched screenwriter Anne Rapp wrap some stinging psychological and emotional observations in a beguiling package.
A flabby farce in which everyone seems to be making it up as they go along.
Ultimately, Dr. T is the cinematic equivalent of shooting well-dressed turkeys in a barrel.
