Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stone deserves some points for playing a recognizable human being while Davidovich fares less well in an underscripted part, but what sabotages the story altogether is Gere's boundless narcissism."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Tespite the glossiness, it winds up seeming profoundly uneventful, perhaps because the car crash is the story's only real dramatic turn."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Only Stone manages to find any emotional depth in her character, and that's not enough reason to see the film."
‑ , Film4
"Click to read review"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It also seems as though the filmmakers scored well in Symbolism 101."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"This very loose adaptation (acknowledgement of the sources is buried in the end credits) attempts to goose things up here and there, but original's essentially meditative nature is left quite unfulfilled by the new approach and glamour cast."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"The only thing these characters have to talk about are the problems manufactured for them by the screenplay. No other conversations on any other subject amount to more than filler between crises."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's a waxen, pretentious bore, and whatever chance it may have had of succeeding is foiled by casting so misguided that it's hard to imagine it wasn't meant as a vicious joke."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"My Basic Instinct tells me to inform all of it's unworthiness"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Exactly when it happened, I can't put my finger on."
‑ Scott Renshaw,
"Less neurotic and sexually charged than usual, Gere digs deep to find the source of his character's chronic indecisiveness."
‑ , Time Out
"Please stop me when you care."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Looks nice, gives the sense that there's supposed to be something important going on here, but doesn't deliver the goods."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Gere and Stone are fine with roles that do not overly tax their range, particularly in genre films, such as thrillers or mysteries. But these characters call for wide-ranging emotion."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
