Reviews


80
Slate - David Edelstein
A thriller that isn't kinky isn't much of a thriller. And Cellular has the best kinky phone gimmick since "Sorry, Wrong Number" (1948).
75
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - William Arnold
Very slick, very compelling and not nearly as predictable as it sounds.
70
Washington Post - Desson Thomson
Its adroit use of suspense makes you overlook the silliness.
70
The New York Times - Dana Stevens
It's an honest, unpretentious, well-made B picture with a clever, silly premise, a handful of sly, unassuming performances and enough car chases, decent jokes and swervy plot complications to make the price of the ticket seem like a decent bargain.
67
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Chris Evans is blithely likable despite a few faux-Cruise mannerisms, Basinger makes a vividly frightened yet resourceful woman in peril, and William H. Macy scores as a mild L.A. cop who lets out his inner macho.
