A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Because the material gives off such a delicious vibe, even though the movie itself feels a little old, you want to like Simone. It would be easier if it were a more forceful comedy. But Mr. Niccol's style is that of reticence -- as a director, he's a little coquettish. Full Review

USA Today
A worthy, if flawed, piece of entertainment. Full Review
Collin Levey
Wall Street Journal
But for what it is, the film supplies enough laughs to bury most nagging existential questions. Full Review
David Edelstein
The premise cries out for take-no-prisoners, Terry-Southern-style sick humor; it gets instead a lot of clunky, self-congratulatory in-jokes, and Pacino is left to ham in a vacuum. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Writer-director Niccol (who wrote and directed "Gattaca" and scripted "The Truman Show") uses disarming, but wicked lightness to damn the celebrity-worshiping culture and Hollywood's beyond-the-looking-glass filmmaking. Full Review
