Takes the raw truth and makes it jubilantly, terrifically entertaining.
Surely one of the canniest and most accurate films about American working-class life ever.
Staff [Not Credited]
A first-rate office comedy of prickly exchanges.
Snappy and unusually funny under fundamentally serious circumstances, without being contrived or sitcomy.
San Francisco Examiner
Loose and funny with verve.
Roberts inhabits the character with a gravity and poignancy that she had never even hinted at before.
Soderbergh demands a lot from his star here, and she delivers.
Julia Roberts owns this sweet-natured film.
The New York Times
The feel-good movie of the year.
A screenplay with the depth and insight of a cable-TV docudrama.
