Product Description

Special Features

A perfect complement to the movie itself, "The Making of Erin Brockovich" introduces viewers to Erin Brockovich and Ed Masry, the real-life inspiration for characters played by Julia Roberts and Albert Finney. In addition to appearing in the documentary, director Steven Soderbergh provides intelligent reasoning (in a separate audio commentary) for the deletion of several interesting but ultimately unnecessary scenes. "Erin Brockovich: A Look at a Real-Life Experience" is equally rewarding, offering a more in-depth profile of Brockovich and her long struggle toward personal and professional validation. --Jeff Shannon

2.0 out of 5 stars bad language spoiled it Oct. 6 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is based on a true story and as such, it has merit. I actually enjoyed the interesting story, and could accept Julia Roberts portrayal of Erin because I believe that she was playing the actual person well. However, it was the overdone profanity that spoiled it for me. We got the picture of the kind of world Erin lived in. We didn't have to be reminded over and over again with four letter words.

I love this movie! It is a feel good show with a great story. Julia and Aaron make a great team, and the fact that the real people played roles adds to the greatness.

This deserves five stars because this is a great Julia Roberts movie I have seen in the movie theaters. I still have the HD DVD player for that movie.

Having heard all the hoopla surrounding this film, I was fairly eager to see it, so when my father-in-law gave it to me for Christmas, I didn't waste much time.
I was pretty disappointed, though. The title character, who I guess we are all supposed to see as a sharp, tough woman, seemed to me little more than someone with such a chip on her shoulder she was bowing under the weight. Her law partner (who was excellently played by Albert Finney) was nothing but kind to her, and she was constantly accusing him of trying to cheat her or of going behind her back. He gave her a car, for Heaven's sake, and she was still treating him like the enemy. Her refusal to dress professionally wasn't funny, either..it was an indication to me that she was a person who was determined to be rude to others.
Since seeing the film, I have read more about Ms. Brockovitch and discovered that the story in the film is only half of the truth anyway. Many people in the town she "saved" found that their settlements were much smaller than the settlements of people who were particular "buddies" of Erin's..not to mention the fact that the chemical everyone in the film was so upset about is certainly present in Erin's cigarettes in far greater concentration than it was in the water, and that that particular chemical has STILL never been proven to do damage to people.
An interesting film, I guess, but certainly not one I have a desire to see again.

2.0 out of 5 stars For a "real" movie, no one seems real. Nov. 9 2001
There's nothing new from Julia Roberts in this movie. I have no idea what sort of woman the real Erin Brockovich was from Roberts' portrayal. This is just another movie in which Roberts turns her character into a form of herself. The only things I know about Brockovich from this movie, if it can be trusted for giving a correct portrayal of the woman, is that she is extremely brash and vulgar. I also highly doubt that the people that were actually surrounding this woman were as bland as they were made out to be.
When the movie finally comes around to the storyline about the contamination, everything smooths out a bit, and it becomes easier to overlook the sloppy characterization of just about everyone in this film. The only bits of description for the smaller characters were added to make the crude Brockovich look like a saint. If the real world were as full as such terrible people as in this movie, there would be no hope for civilization to last more than a few more years. And if Brockovich, as she is portrayed in the movie, were our salvation, like in the movie, we would be doomed.
As a writer, it always pains me to see a movie that could have been good completely wasted because of the screenplay. There's no excuse for secondary characters to be written as cardboard, or maybe that feeling only comes out in Julia Roberts films. And truthfully, her acting was just as dull as it normally is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! June 19 2004
Julia Roberts deserves an Oscar for this one. This was an excellent movie. It is based on the true story of a woman named Erin Brockovich. Erin is a twice divorced mother of three with no money. While out job hunting one day, she gets into a car accident and ends up with surgery and a neck brace. Since she had no insurance, she found herself being $17,000 in debt. After losing the case in court because of swearing on the stand, she ends up working for the lawyer who represented her by practically demanding a job from him. There are some hilarious scenes here.
Part of what was humorous about this film was Erin herself. She dresses very provocatively and thinks nothing of using foul language in the office. Most people would be fired in a minute if they acted this way, but somehow, Erin gets away with it. Her boss and co-workers often don't know what to make of her. On top of that, the audience loves her. You can see that underneath the tough exterior is a good, kind person who truly cares about the people she's trying to help.
She starts doing some research on her own in the town of Hinkley, California when she sees health problems in some files at the office. She interviewed so many different families with everything from cancer to severe nose bleeds. It turned out that Pacific Gas & Electric had poisoned the town's water supply by not taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening. Erin has tremendous warmth and the people of Hinkley come to love and trust her. The movie also shows the major sacrifices she made by having to work such long hours on this case. Her relationship with her children suffered a lot at that time, but in the end, it was all worth it.

Erin Brockovich is a real woman with real problems and a real will to do something good. So what does she do? Something good. And, quite honestly, it's fun to watch her do it. Read more
