Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In this world of Information Highway sophistication and virtual-reality marvels, the pivotal plot points are all rickety coincidences: an overheard conversation, a fortuitous phone call."
‑ Jack Kroll, Newsweek
"Levinson and Attanasio don't ignore the basics of the tale, but don't indulge them either, subjectively approaching Tom's character to maximize dramatic involvement and treating the most explosive aspects of the story more rationally than emotionally."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"...watchable yet far-from-engrossing..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is a deeply silly film, highlighting some of Hollywood's most overrated talent at its indulgent, issue-chasing worst."
‑ , Film4
"The movie's subject is the intricate web of paranoia and competitive aggression that creeps down and smothers any flicker of loyalty."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A glibly entertaining corporate thriller."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Hokey and classy in equal measure, this is better than it ought to be."
‑ , Time Out
"Little more than another Hollywood sizzler, a highly melodramatic and perhaps opportunistic look at a couple of topical themes; that said, it's also a lot of fun."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The movie comes closest to thematic coherence, and the popular mood, in its depiction of something nearly everyone can relate to: the office from hell."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Well written. Douglas triumps over evil in a big way. Bye bye!"
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"You know in advance what the politics will be: strong women in positions of power are just fine as long as they aren't sexually dominant and obey middle-class rules of propriety."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"This time, it's the author who's the dinosaur."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The impact of 'Disclosure' is weakened significantly by depiction of the female boss as a totally evil person."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Genuinely gripping, Demi makes an awesome femme fatale."
‑ Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine
"A pretty darn-good movie."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
