Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A knockout. An intense, imaginative and exciting multilayered thriller. Woods and Dennehy are both outstanding. One of the unsung great movies of the 1980s."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"The two leads make Best Seller easy to sit through, but the wandering script by Larry Cohen and the dreary pacing offered by director John Flynn sink what could have been a can't-miss b-movie hoot."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"One of the edgiest, most suspenseful thrillers of the 1980's....Woods is amazing"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"This Best Seller is a fabulous read...slick, taut, and involving. Woods and Dennehy make for an unconventional crime-chasing pair."
‑ Frank Ochieng, TheWorldJournal.com
