Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 09/01/2002
"...[A] pleasingly twisted black comedy....Gyllenhaal is an absolute revelation in the title role -- brave, goofy, and ultimately, mind-boggingly sexy..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 09/01/2002
"...[Gyllenhall] gives a performance of remarkable gutsiness....[She] plays her role with sensuality as well as sensitivity..."
Film Comment - 09/01/2002
"...Spader hasn't shown so much twisted depth since SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE, and Gyllenhaal's performance is a dynamic force to be reckoned with..."
New York Times - 09/20/2002
"...SECRETARY, a small groundbreaking comedy, is a contemporary Cinderella story with a kink and a wink..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/20/2002
"...SECRETARY is a genial romance that maintains a surprisingly buoyant tone throughout..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/27/2002
"...There's a word for an actress who can go from nervous to winsome to raunchy to romantic in a heartbeat and get you to adore her the whole time. The word is star..."
USA Today - 09/27/2002
"...SECRETARY is just too original to be ignored..."
Rolling Stone - 10/03/2002
"...A film of startling humor and feeling....Spader and Gyllenhaal are electric, bringing SECRETARY all the power and compassion it needs..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2003
"...Essentially this is a two-hander, with Spader and Gyllenhaal playing off each other superbly..."
