    Completely mediocre...nothing special at all. This seemed like it should have been a Movie of the Week on TV. I'll be interested in seeing how many people are actually interested enough to see this in theaters. I don't think it will be many.

    The film is flashy, but the filmmakers are not getting inside their character's brain at all and rather focus more on the dull procedures of editing in corporate magazines.

  1. Although the substance could have used more visual style, Ray tells an uncluttered story and draws strong performances from his actors.

    Against very steep odds, writer-director Billy Ray and company have, in telling the real-life story of fictionalizing "New Republic" writer Stephen Glass and his downfall, produced the most entertaining inside-journalism movie since "All the President's Men."

    The film never digs deep enough into the pressures on Glass from his family, his peers and himself to achieve psychological depth. But as an inside look into the hothouse of journalism, it's dynamite.
