It's not among my favorite films, but I did like it a lot. I thought it was entertaining and interesting... I liked Julia Roberts and also Aaron Eckhart. Nice!

I guess this movie is fantastic for people who have no idea how a class action lawsuit works or that a lot of companies don't really care what happens to people and try to buy their way out of trouble.
I'm not really sure how Julia Robert won an Oscar for that part since it's neither challenging, nor very different from her usual "loud mouth/big smile" shtick that made her famous in Pretty Woman.

Biopics are often a hard sell for me, even when I've made a point of seeing everything else a director has made, and Erin Brockovich is a good example why. I like them when they somehow transcend the material and tell a thematically coherent story. I don't care about them when they are inherently biographical and have a more informative value. Erin Brockovich has a worthy story about sticking it to a polluting corporation, and I guess we do learn about how class action suits work, but it also lacks focus by swinging back and forth between investigation/lawyer tactics and Erin's family life. I'm not entirely sure why we should care about the sacrifices this coarse single mother makes when her clients have much more powerful stories. Not to say this isn't well told. Soderbergh is a reliable director and Julia Roberts gives a good, if predictable, performance. Albert Finney as the lawyer is perhaps the highlight.

Unfortunately the movie kind of gives the illusion that money solves all problems.

entertaining, very conventional, rather high on saccharine – not in the book

Take a dump and stare at it for 123 minutes.
