It goes on a little long, but isn't terrible.

Fails on all points of plot, characterization, plausibility and realism...

Laramie Movie Scope

Low-key comedy about Hollywood absurdities is aided by some great acting talent and a lot of funny in-jokes.

Niccol makes what seems like a preposterous idea not only fresh and entertaining, but most of all reveals said idea to be not at all far removed from reality.

Cinema em Cena

Para funcionar da melhor maneira, a sátira tem sempre que manter um pé na realidade. Porém, ao perder este contato com o mundo real, S1m0ne se transforma em fábula - e sua força desaparece.

...an above-average sophomoric effort from [director Andrew] Niccol.

If you're expecting a scathing commentary on our media obsessed times, then Simone isn't it. If you're expecting a funny comedy, then Simone isn't it either.

There was a time when I could say, 'I never met an Al Pacino movie I didn't like.' Oh, well-all things must pass.

A brilliant satire of the film industry.

Film Threat

Not only has the filmmaker elected to address some extremely well worn themes, he evidently has little new to say about them.

We can see that Simone looks fake, and we can tell that her acting is flat and lifeless, and it is embarrassingly obvious that Roberts is unable to capture the gestures of the great performers her character supposed to be made from. So what's the point?

| Original Score: 1.5/4

Niccol has come up with one of the sharpest parodies around of Tinseltown and the media establishment that feeds on it.

The action unwinds with energy and wit, so far as it goes, and Mr. Pacino's zest for his absurd role is amusing.

While the script starts promisingly, it loses steam towards the middle and never really develops beyond attacking obvious target.

Maybe there is a lesson in a movie that offers us a dumpster full of cardboard cutouts of Winona Ryder.

Simone as an icon (nyuk nyuk) is a combination of Pygmalion and Narcissus ? how apt. Elegantly done.

Vale la pena como comedia ligera, aunque hubiera preferido un tono más serio sobre el tema...

Decent Films Guide

In the movie, fictional director Viktor Taransky has a CGI actress that he bills as flesh and blood; in real life, director Andrew Nichol has a flesh-and-blood actress that he bills as CGI.

a media satire that ultimately lacks bite
