The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
If the external threat in the plot were a little more credible, this would be an annoying distraction. But in the context of the rest of Gloria, it's a safe strategy: When not watching Sharon Stone act, audiences can fall back on just watching Sharon Stone.

Stone's latest penance is Gloria, the Sidney Lumet-directed dud that sprung from the singularly bad idea of remaking John Cassavetes' oddball 1980 character study. I mean, really, did anyone even like the original?

It's entertainment, but mild entertainment.

The shadow of Gena Rowlands looms over this picture like a cinematic eclipse. [25 January 1999, Tempo, p.5]

Just because it's not boring, that doesn't mean it's worth plunking down the price of admission.

A pale imitation of the John Cassavettes original.
30
Listless clunker.

Poor Sharon Stone! Poor Sidney Lumet! [22 January 1999, Life, p.11E]

While the somewhat indefatigable Stone may survive this misfire (she's survived plenty of others), Lumet may not.

When studios plant these stink bombs in theaters, do they really think that audiences won't notice the stench?
