Takes the raw truth and makes it jubilantly, terrifically entertaining.
All the up-from-under satisfaction of an underdog getting over, with the added oomph of the truth.
Julia Roberts marches through Erin Brockovich like a force of nature. Granted, the movie gives her all of the best lines — to say nothing of its most eye-catching wardrobe. But the actress seizes the film's eponymous role with fire-in-her-eyes possessiveness and injects the character with all the energy and drive she can muster. Read full review
The kind of stand-up-and-cheer movie Hollywood is supposed to have forgotten how to make.
The kind of movie that gives mainstream Hollywood star vehicles a good name.
Outrageously, even shamelessly, entertaining.
Loose and funny with verve.
Roberts inhabits the character with a gravity and poignancy that she had never even hinted at before.
