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

Simpatco is a very pretty film, and its stars do as much as possible with their roles. It's just that the roles don't do much for them.

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.

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

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.

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

A movie hobbled by unwieldy visual ideas.

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

Another example of when bad movies happen to good actors.

Is it that the director hates these women, or that Shepard simply can't write a good one?
January 1, 2000
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.

Debut director Matthew Warchus didn't trim where needed, with some extraneous quiet moments that test the patience.

Simpatico is worth seeing to keep up with Keener's evolving excellence and Stone's continuing effort to stretch her range. But the picture isn't likely to linger in your mind once the closing credits have rolled.
