The movie is a sarcastic and carefully detailed picture of a world Mr. Brooks finds fascinating and also a little scary.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Brooks' observations are as keen as Woody Allen's but without the neurotic narcissism.Movie MetropolisFebruary 26, 2011
(The) endlessly quotable writing... keeps the film fresh as Tom, Aaron and Jane carom off each other at ever-more oblique angles.Q Network Film DeskFebruary 06, 2011
The human element is just as prescient as it was then, while the characters' romantic/professional entanglements now have the added poignancy of the past tense.Groucho ReviewsJanuary 17, 2011
By looking at the small-screen picture...[Brooks] provocatively suggests that America's socio-political problems are pretty much the same as the personal problems of its citizens. [Blu-ray]Laramie Movie ScopeFebruary 24, 2010
People often behave foolishly in matters of love and just about everything else. That can lead to heartache and tragedy, but that same foolishness can also be very funny to watch, as it is here.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsApril 02, 2008
The outstanding set pieces give the viewer an idea of the job pressures, its perks, pitfalls and how the news is in the long run compromised.
