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.
All of the filmmaker's fine work and good intentions cannot make this repetitive and finally tiresome saga fly.
Erin Brockovich is slick, grating and false. We bet it makes a bundle.
