Richard Corliss The plot is a doomsday version of Bill Clinton's Paula Jones problem, but the theme is impending mortality--settling scores before time's up.
Geoff Andrew Doesn't rank with Eastwood's best work as actor/director, but it's nevertheless solidly enjoyable.
Janet Maslin Mr. Hackman languishes in the smallish role of a White House buffoon, with Judy Davis equally cartoonish as his witchy chief of staff.
Kenneth Turan Almost a drawing room thriller, unhurried and genteel but enlivened with suspense and surprising bursts of sly, even biting, humor.
Charles Taylor The picture might have gotten by if Eastwood had given it some impudent wit. But he directs to the rhythm of his facial muscles.
