Critic Reviews of "Single White Female"Chicago ReaderApril 14, 2008
There's something dehumanizing about 90s horror thrillers that all but defeats the film's impulses toward seriousness; no matter how much the filmmakers work to make the characters real, the genre contrives to turn them into functions and props.VarietyApril 14, 2008
Despite excellent lead performances and numerous memorable scenes, this still feels like two different movies in one.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
If his two leads are adequate to the slick mechanisms of a formulaic thriller, neither they nor Don Roos' script (based on the novel by John Lutz) offer any original insights into insatiable emotional dependence.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
The film is smooth, entertaining and believably sophisticated. It has far more sound psychological underpinnings than other movies of its type.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Schroeder goes through the motions -- the movie is elegantly made -- but this synthetic Hollywood package panders shamelessly to the baser instincts.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
You watch this thing coolly intrigued and sometimes amused, rather than terrified and taken in -- even when the stabbing raises its bloody, predictable hand.BrianOrndorf.comAugust 16, 2012
Turns out both of these women are mentally damaged, adding a nice little purple-nurple to the script, giving the actresses something with a little more bite to play with.KPBS.orgApril 18, 2008
A waste of the talented Jennifer Jason Leigh and director SchroderEmpire MagazineApril 14, 2008
Fluffy thriller, with moments of unintentional humour.Film4April 14, 2008
The climax is a long time coming, and you can't help feeling that the adaptation would work better as a play.TV GuideApril 14, 2008
A stylishly shot thriller with several hair-raising moments. Considering that it's directed by Barbet Schroeder and stars Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh, it's also a major disappointment.ColeSmithey.comOctober 16, 2007
Great suspense thriller.
