There's really no reason this kind of conventional David-and-Goliath tale (based on a true story) should make for such a compelling motion picture, but Soderbergh and Grant smartly mix plenty of humor and unflagging inspiration into the drama.

Julia Roberts has never been more fragile or stunning. And by oncerning itself with truthful consequences of its characters' self-sacrifices, the film succeeds as a drama as much about the passion of personal investment as the pursuit of justice.

In this Oscar-winning fairytale, combining traits of Norma Rae and Karen Silkwood, Julia Roberts is at her most winning and sexiest as the lone-figher against the system; that it's inspired by an actual case makes it more fun to watch.

It would have seemed impossible to me that a writer could take such a worn-out premise and make it enthralling, but this guy has done it.

It's hard to imagine another actress pulling this off without appearing sleazy.

With director Steven Soderbergh at the helm and Julia Roberts in the title role, the movie breezes by enjoyably without so much as a grandstanding speech or an awkward moment.

Few critics have been as skeptical of Julia Roberts' talents as I, but "Erin Brockovich" has won me over.

O incrível é que Julia Roberts nos faz esquecer de sua aura de 'estrela de cinema' e acreditar que ela seja, de fato, alguém com sérias dificuldades financeiras.

Erin is far and away her own worst enemy — and a good thing too, because she needed at least one.

Steven Soderbergh realizes that he's working with a potentially been-there-done-that situation, and he makes all the right choices.

This movie has the eerie tang of so many other wretched Roberts vehicles of the past...but somehow, it manages to produce a moderately good film
