Janssen is an intense screen presence. Too often she's stuck playing humorless towering antagonists. Here, happily, she's allowed to be a real person.

Odd, funny film.
The filmmaking is rudimentary in The Treatment, Oren Rudavsky's adaptation of Daniel Menaker's novel, but the feeling for the patient-and-shrink dynamic is authentic.
Short, sweet, and hardly ever cloying, The Treatment is largely dependent for its success on the quality of its performances--most surprisingly, Eigeman's.
This offbeat charmer succumbs to the same airless artificiality that has claimed many recent efforts in the genre.
Best of all is Holm, who is consistently hilarious as the sarcastic shrink from hell.
