[Bennett's] quite convincing as she tries to figure out what has gone wrong in her personal life -- and how she can fix it before it is too late.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

Some Body often looks like an episode of the TV show Blind Date, only less technically proficient and without the pop-up comments.

Bennett's naturalistic performance speaks volumes more truth than any 'reality' show, and anybody contemplating their own drastic life changes should watch Some Body first.
| Original Score: 3/4

To be influenced chiefly by humanity's greatest shame, reality shows -- reality shows for God's sake! -- is a crime that should be punishable by chainsaw.

Some Body smacks of exhibitionism more than it does cathartic truth telling.

It's so tedious that it makes you forgive every fake, dishonest, entertaining and, ultimately, more perceptive moment in Bridget Jones's Diary.
| Original Score: 2/4

Just because it really happened to you, honey, doesn't mean that it's interesting to anyone else.
Norm Schrager

Exists then as an occasionally insightful acting exercise.

In the end there is one word that best describes this film: honest.

You might not want to hang out with Samantha, but you'll probably see a bit of yourself in her unfinished story.

Ms. Bennett is worth watching, and her story is weirdly detailed enough to prove once more that truth is too strange for good fiction.
Jason Clark
Matinee Magazine
April 28, 2002
An unremittingly ugly movie to look at, listen to, and think about, it is quite possibly the sturdiest example yet of why the DV revolution has cheapened the artistry of making a film.

A painfully funny ode to bad behavior.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Jordan Reed
Boxoffice Magazine
April 26, 2002
Winds up being both revelatory and narcissistic, achieving some honest insight into relationships that most high-concept films candy-coat with pat storylines, precious circumstances and beautiful stars.

An amateurish, quasi-improvised acting exercise shot on ugly digital video.

Some Body is a shaky, uncertain film that nevertheless touches a few raw nerves.
