A feel-good movie about sadomasochism, the seriocomic Secretary manages to be simultaneously subversive and sweet...In the wrong hands, the conceit could have turned ugly and offensive. But Spader and Gyllenhaal have a hushed, hilarious chemistry.

The cast comes through even when the movie doesn't.

Despite its flaws, Secretary stays in your head and makes you question your own firmly held positions.

A picture with heart. You shouldn't leave feeling soiled or bruised. Just touched.

Self-serious and ultimately pedestrian satire.

I don't know about you, but I found all these outrageously romantic maneuvers both funny and endearing.

Secretary is just too original to be ignored.

It provokes nothing but yawns, and the sex it explores is stuff everybody knows about and says, 'So what?'

Secretary is a textbook example of a movie that's not for everybody: It's easier to respect it than to enjoy it.
