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.

Warchus seems as at ease with the complexity of the style as he is with directing actors.

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.

Improbabilities and all, Simpatico still boasts wonderful scenes and a cast that is truly superb.

It's a confounding and unsatisfying film.

The movie is so careless about its horse-selling subplot that its melodramatic payoff feels cheap and abrupt.

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.

Warchus' accomplished handling and the stars' flavorful performances lend Simpatico a bittersweet grace.

It's a shame Nolte and Bridges weren't cast as brothers, because the two have similar rumpled-suede faces and irritated-bark delivery.

Instead of permitting its characters to be developed naturally, Simpatico manipulates them to fulfill the needs of its heavy-handed plot.

Although the central offense of the past is certainly sordid enough, it's not terribly interesting, and no laborious montage can alter that.
