3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but clumsy 11 Nov 2005
Not a bad movie, but not brilliant either. As a dyed-the-wool John Cusack fan I'm bound to say his performance was good, and it was, but certainly not his greatest. James Spader was good in the role of the 'good guy', something he tends not to do very often. The casting of both actors against their usual type did mean that I thought more about the plot/story than I might have done otherwise. Neither of these main characters is really bad nor really good, they are written reasonably well and are 'real'/human. Somehow there was something a bit clumsy about the film. Perhaps it was just the 80s setting viewed in the 00s or the fact that some of the character background was given clumsily...the bar scene where Cusack's character's history is revealed was not subtle at all! Still a watchable film and interesting subject matter...maybe I enjoyed it more than my 3 star rating suggests...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cusack shows Spader his true colours 2 April 2009
It's a good movie about love, trust and betrayal. A young Cusack and Spader work well together and it's an enjoyable movie. There's nothing ground breaking to make it stand out from any other political ladder-climbing films, but if you are a fan of either of the two leads, you'll be happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Friendship is like the morning dew..." 19 Aug 2003
By "" - Published on
I think this is an excellent movie. Good screenplay, good idea, great direction, great acting. John Cusack and James Spader make you believe they are actually best friends, they own their characters and the friendship between their characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Soggy Political Drama 23 July 2003
By Westley - Published on
True Colors stars John Cusack and James Spader as law school buddies on very different career trajectories. Spader plans on going into the Department of Justice and resigns himself to serving the public. Cusack, on the other hand, is an extremely ambitious politician. I bet you can tell where this situation is headed! Despite their differences, they remain friends, even after Cusack steals Spader's girlfriend from him.
The movie tries to examine issues of power and corruption. Unfortunately, the plot is so stale and obvious that it fails to add anything new to this arena. Spader and Cusack are fine, but Imogen Stubbs, as the woman they both love, is terrible. She's a Brit playing an American, but her accent creeps in far too often, which is a huge distraction. I'm a big fan of John Cusack, but this movie is definitely one of his lesser accomplishments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment 18 Nov 2013

Just a really great movie on how the political game is played. However, this is quite dated and as we can see the games of today, this movie could be considered practically benign political games.

It is enjoyable and both Spader and Cusack did a great job.

Big fan of John Cusack and James Spader. The movie was better when it came out. Unfortunately it's a little dated.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great start fades away quickly 28 Nov 2003
By David M. Lovin - Published on
If you decide to watch "True Colors", I would advise you to watch about the first 30 minutes and then turn it off. The opening of the film is great, and will have you really gripped, but the movie will soon turn very familiar and you'll lose interest. By the end, you will almost laugh at the ridiculous conclusion.
The two main stars are James Spader and John Cusack. They meet the first day of law school at UVA when Cusack smashes into Spader's car on move in day, starting a huge fight between the two. No points for guessing that they will end up roommates. They overcome this tough start and become good friends. Cusack comes from rather humble roots, to say the least, while Spader has a somewhat higher pedigree. In fact, he is dating the daughter (Imogen Stubbs) of a senator (Richard Widmark). It doesn't take long before Cusack is lying left and right about his background, trying to impress everyone. This continues to Capital Hill, when both young men are hired in Washington. Spader is an assistant DA, Cusack works on Widmark's staff.
From here, you can guess what will happen. Knowing that Cusack is such a rotten apple, nothing will be a surprise. He will double cross his "friend" so many times, and in so many cruel ways, that it's implausible that Spader could even stand in the same room with him.
I won't give the story away, but I will say that the end of the movie, when Spader gets his "revenge" is so corny and unbelievable, I would rather have had him pull out a gun and just shoot him. That would have made more sense than this. All in all, the film starts out great and will ultimately leave you cold.
