The film lacks focus and energy, the character development is facile and thin, and what about those necklines?

A feel good, old-fashioned (except for all the cuss words), liberal message movie for the people ...

Not only is every plot development signaled far in advance, but nearly every scene in the film's long second section rings a variation of one of two themes: 1) Julia Roberts tells somebody off, or 2) Julia Roberts feels somebody's pain.

Before long, the character simply becomes irritating.

It's the first Steven Soderbergh film to smack of work for hire.

Chuck Rudolph
Matinee Magazine

It is not a movie, but a collection of scenes that serve one purpose only: to justify Julia Roberts as a movie star.

The movie gets bogged down in a trite legal plot.

A feel-good film with all the numbing predictability movie-goers seem to demand.

It's not that this is lousy entertainment, it's just that it's a Serious Topic given unnecessary Celebrity Sheen.

Remember Michelle Pfeiffer in Frankie and Johnny, how ridiculously unresilient she looked in her waitress uniform? Erin is no more believable.

Erin Brockovich is pretty pat and predictable stuff.

Yazmin Ghonaim

The film exploits Julia Roberts' role as a 'pretty woman,' whose prettiness is toyed with by the awful --yet eye-catching-- clothes she wears, and which glamorizes the character's less exciting qualities that drive the story.
