Rotten

This simplistic and obvious expose about the manipulative power of the news media (lazily acted by Travoilta and Hoffman) is so familiar that it's not going to upset or provoke anyone.

...a film of mild pleasures and mild annoyances, alternately tired and clever yet ultimately dismissible.
