Critic Reviews of "Swimming With Sharks"Time OutJune 24, 2006
The picture's raison d'être has to be Spacey's 'loud and nasty' performance: he's the sort of actor who grabs you by the throat and beats you about the head without ever lifting his feet from the desk.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Spacey's Buddy is a caricature so dazzling that even Buddy might have to say something nice about it: cool, withering, studiously suave, and spurred by impulses that might seem peevish even in a 2-year-old child.Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
This excessively talky, incoherently plotted, would-be film noir is not very good.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2001
To outsiders, all this rage and gnashing of teeth may seem silly and self-absorbed.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
The film has no subtlety, so the one-dimensional story comes across as a sophomoric, pointless tirade.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Sharks is a one-joke movie, and the joke wears thin less than halfway through.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 18, 2008
Despite some sharp dialogue, this is a nasty, derivative film, sort of a cross between Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Altman's The Player.Reel Film ReviewsJuly 31, 2005
...Spacey delivers one of his most memorable performances...DVDTalk.comJune 17, 2005
It's darkly hilarious, smoothly entertaining, and almost sinfully cruel. And the finalé packs a real stinger.Capital Times (Madison, WI)May 12, 2005
Dazzling and subversive satire on boss-employee relations.MovieholeMarch 23, 2005
One of the best film's of the 90's...Spacey and Whaley are staggeringly good!CinerinaMay 12, 2003
ascerbic but missing something
