Steve Davis
Austin Chronicle

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.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Diverting political melodrama, but shouldn't Cusack and Spader have switched roles?

| Original Score: 3/5

Spirituality and Practice

A case study of the dire effects of an individual's lack of ethical standards.

True Colors apparently thinks it is exposing the values of the greedy 1980's. Yet its own understanding of moral conduct is warped.

Apollo Guide

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'.

Requires more than the willing suspension of disbelief; it demands a willful abandonment of incredulity.

While it aspires to lofty heights, it never really goes much beyond the rules of behavior prescribed by the Boy Scout Handbook.
