Simpatico Reviews

Michael Dequina

With the cast and the pulpy neo-noir storyline, one would never suspect that the film is the crushing bore that it is.

Eye for Film

This is an engaging movie, which shows its theatrical origins, both positively and negatively.

Nolte and Bridges have too much talent to play their uninspired characters.

The film might as well be called Stagnant, because precious little of emotional consequence for the audience happens.

Nolte and Bridges are naturals together.

Much effort and expertise have gone into the making of Simpatico, but, while it's entertaining, it's not as persuasive as it needs to be to succeed fully.

It's a confounding and unsatisfying film.

Powerhouse performances can't save sloppy Simpatico from the glue factory.

Matt Reichl

Despite a dream cast and an interesting neo-noir setup, his film races straight into tedium.

January 1, 2000


Though British director Matthew Warchus gets quality work from his A-list cast members, their contributions cannot redeem the hackneyed and obvious material.

It proves only intermittently engaging as its twisted plot loses energy and becomes confusing in the latter half.

Tom Sander
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

This deadly slow, boring, overwrought, silly and stilted melodrama is so awful you ask, 'Why did anyone think this was worth making?'

Another example of when bad movies happen to good actors.

Ultimately the film, like the story, is enigmatic and messy and circles in on itself until there is nowhere to go.

Jay Stone
Ottawa Citizen

Simpatico is interesting only as a collage of scenes among good actors: there's no chemistry in its romantic triangle.

January 1, 2000

Is it that the director hates these women, or that Shepard simply can't write a good one?

Geoff Pevere

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Simpatico never pulls together long enough to amount to much more than a series of prematurely aborted encounters, scenes from a movie sketched but unfinished.

January 1, 2000
David N. Butterworth

If the film's title sounds like the next Mexican cerveza, it's not inappropriate. Simpatico comes wrapped in a fancy label -- Nolte, Bridges, Stone -- but inside the product is flat and weak.

First-time feature director Matthew Warchus can't keep the plot from bewildering and even distancing the viewer.

Stone doesn't show up until the film is half over and seems to be trying rather hard to make up for the lost time.
