Any impact the film had as it questioned reality, the media, perception and Hollywood is erased like a reformatted hard drive.

It's fitfully funny but never really takes off.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 20, 2002
This is the case of a pregnant premise being wasted by a script that takes few chances and manages to insult the intelligence of everyone in the audience.

Never fully establishes the credibility of its premise nor does the satire have much sting.

Feels like a premise, followed by an hour of dead air, followed by an ending.

The story really has no place to go since Simone is not real-she can't provide any conflict.

You don't so much admire the movie as feel bludgeoned by its attitudes, however commendable they may be.
August 26, 2002
It can't properly manage its wonderful conceit, and proves ultimately too timid to make the impression it really should.

August 26, 2002
Niccol's sluggish pacing belabors his one-joke script, and he makes a major miscalculation: Simone herself is too bland and vapid to justify her superstardom.

Control-Alt-Delete Simone as quickly as possible

Pushes its thesis way past the breaking point of even the most gullible or charitable of viewers.

Simone should have exposed more of its heartless hard drive to give this flimsy computerized comedy some more edgy kick in its absurdity devoted to creating an ideal image for pop culture pundits.

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

Niccol is working with Al Pacino, for crying out loud, and winds up rushing him through the same paces as Andrew McCarthy in Weekend at Bernie's.

Simone has a lot of things going for it in terms of its ideas. [But] the backbone, the very narrative here, is faulty... and as such it's just a flat ride.

Simone is definitely nothing more than a renter.
