Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a film of mild pleasures and mild annoyances, alternately tired and clever yet ultimately dismissible.

Has a fairly good view of the Big Picture, but its dramatic details never come into satisfying focus.

The weak material is unenthusiastically played by Dustin Hoffman and downright badly handled by John Travolta...

'The media are vultures' is the prevailing point here, and it is not expressed in the most original or interesting of ways.

This simplistic and obvious expose about the manipulative power of the news media (lazily acted by Travoilta and Hoffman) is so familiar that it's not going to upset or provoke anyone.
