Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Copycat, despite two tough-babe leads to kill for, flies in more directions than scattered kitty litter."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"A striking, consistently engaging thriller..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Not -half-bad serial killer thriller. A great cast helps immeasurably."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Chilling serial killer thriller. You will never look at Harry Connick Jr the same way again."
‑ Shannon J. Harvey, Sunday Times (Australia)
"[Gives] Weaver equal billing with everyone's favorite Southern spitfire, Holly Hunter. Teaming up these heavyweights is the genius notion of Copycat, a solid serial-killer thriller elevated by phenomenal acting. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"There are so many numbskull moves by almost every character, it becomes more of an exercise in frustration than an enjoyable viewing experience."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Boasts fine performances by Hunter and Weaver, but it's the inept work of the villains that keeps it from really coming alive."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"One of the more watchable 'elaborate serial killer' movies"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"It's not the kind of title that anyone would seek out, but it's a fine movie if you're just going to be watching a little TV."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Great cast but too nasty-tempered to elevate it from its sordid serial killer roots."
‑ Neil Cohen, Echo Magazine
"Entertaining -- for all the wrong reasons -- thriller,"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Has too many characters and needless plot twists -- padding in between corpses."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
