Former basketball star Dennis Rodman stars in this action-and-espionage thriller as Simon, an Interpol agent called into action when the daughter of a close friend is abducted. In order to track down the kidnappers, Simon seeks the assistance of a pair of monks (John Pinette and Ricky Harris) who are experts in computer sleuthing. Simon Sez was Rodman's first solo starring vehicle, following his dramatic debut alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme in Double Team. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

This cockamamy action flick is excruciatingly formulaic -- brimming with spy movie cliches but devoid of the genre's fun, upper-class pretensions.
A frenetically junky action adventure that will quickly dribble off to vid stores after a token fast break in theatrical release.
Neither the Rivera scenery nor the martial arts of Xiong Xin Xin, much less the automotive stunts attributable to Remy Julienne, can lift Simon Sez beyond the very ordinary.
Movies and Rodman would seem to be made for each other, but the pictures will have to start getting better than this one.
Dennis Rodman may be a great rebounder, but as a pop-culture icon, he's a one-trick pony.
This on-the-cheap action thriller appears to exist purely as a showcase for the limited talents of self-created caricature Dennis Rodman, who in turn clearly needs to exploit himself while the exploiting is good.
If you must watch it -- and I shudder to imagine the circumstances under which one must -- watch it in a light mood, perhaps under the influence of something.
The film's feeble attempts at humor are tedious; like the character of Nick, the film quickly goes from being funny to silly to annoying.
With such sheer ineptitude onscreen it's amazing that this hack job didn't go straight to video.
Me, I'll stick to appreciating Worm Rodman in his true and natural element: the 96-foot hardwood floor.
One of the most awful movies (if you could even call it a movie) this year.
