Critic Reviews of "The Client"Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
It's a successful frame-turner, no more, no less, and the pleasure we feel is every bit as mild and just as fleeting.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
A high-voltage charge of suspense, action and humor.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Mindless, non-taxing fun, especially if you haven't read the book.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Not as satisfying as it should be.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
This isn't a masterpiece of suspense, but it has its moments and is capable of providing some light summer entertainment.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
It twists and turns in all the expected places, and almost never rises above the ordinary.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 15, 2005
Susan Sarandon, the emotional center of the narrative, received a well-deserved Oscar nomination for playing a recovered alcoholic laywer who interacts with the boy as a surrogate mother and a pro.Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)June 14, 2004
An engrossing potboiler ... if you don't think too hard. But when you need a pot-smoking Lez Zeppelin-enslaved swamp rat-with-a-brain to plead your case, you call the pitch-perfect Susan Sarandon.About.comSeptember 26, 2003
