Movie Summary

Director:
Andrew Niccol
Released:
2002
Rating:
PG-13
Viktor Taransky (Al Pacino) is a down-and-out Academy Award-nominated director who loses his last chance for a comeback when temperamental actress (Winona Ryder in a cameo role) walks off his set. But now computer genius Hank Aleno (Elias Koteas) shows up. S1MØNE is a director's dream: She won't get old, won't gain an ounce. She'll never need rehab, doesn't have an agent, manager, entourage or guru. She won't demand a bigger trailer or a private jet. She does her own stunts. She has no problem with nudity. The only power she craves comes from an electrical outlet.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Scott Foundas

    Attempts to delve beneath the surface of Hollywood's rampant narcissism and fascination with technology, but ultimately feels like just one more in the long line of films this year...

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    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...

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Such a tedious Hollywood farce, so unpleasantly glib and relentlessly shallow, that Pacino's excessive performance is not even the worst thing about it.
