Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"True Colors apparently thinks it is exposing the values of the greedy 1980's. Yet its own understanding of moral conduct is warped."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"The painstakingly obvious screenplay by Kevin Wade (Working Girl) plays like an eighth-grade civics primer: ethics and morality are good, greed and corruption are bad."
‑ Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
"Much of the film's entertainment value lies in watching two familiar guys (Cusack and Spader) playing switcheroo with their stock roles, but the movie is more than just effective 'gimmick casting'."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"While it aspires to lofty heights, it never really goes much beyond the rules of behavior prescribed by the Boy Scout Handbook."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Diverting political melodrama, but shouldn't Cusack and Spader have switched roles?"
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Requires more than the willing suspension of disbelief; it demands a willful abandonment of incredulity."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A case study of the dire effects of an individual's lack of ethical standards."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
