Movie Reviews The Informant!

Matt Damon is anything but the glamorous. buffed-up hunk he has played in his previous films in The Informant! And almost every critic comments on his metamorphosis into a bland, paunchy (he reportedly gained 30 pounds for the movie), corporate executive who blew the whistle on the Archer Daniels Midland conglomerate while embezzling money from it in the process. Damon gets high marks from critics. Carrie Rickey comments in the Philadelphia Inquirer "Damon's performance is worth watching even as his character exhausts us with half-truths and whole lies." "Matt Damon is goofy perfection," writes Lou Lumenick in the New York Post. "Matt Damon delivers comedic gold," says Peter Howell in the Toronto Star . It all works to the benefit of the film itself, Michael Sragow observes in the Baltimore Sun . "At its peak, it's a crackpot character comedy," he writes. And Ty Burr in the Boston Globe concludes "That the movie works as well as it does is due to Matt Damon."
