Evening Standard reviews The Pain and The Itch

The Evening Standard has giving The Pain and The Itch 4 stars.  Here is what is said about Matthew Macfadyen:

The smug and joyless Clay is also a great part for Matthew Macfadyen - a comic counterpart of all those over-serious alpha males he plays on screen - and the actor has him down pat, pulling off the trick of showing us Clay's insecurity without making him likeable.
