An offbeat romantic comedy. Jerry Fletcher (Gibson), a conspiracy-obsessed New York cab driver, sees evidence of sinister plots in even the most ordinary places. Alice Sutton (Roberts) is a bright, albeit skeptical justice dept. attorney.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: En route to this cynical fade-out, Conspiracy Theory does show off enough glossy style ... and incidental cleverness to keep viewers largely hooked.
Rotten: ...the strong impact that Gibson makes as damaged goods is diluted by selling Jerry as cute and redeemable.
Rotten: In the hands of stars in denial about their stardom and a director who can't be bothered to take things seriously, it has come out implausible and unsatisfying, a comic thriller that is not especially funny or thrilling.
Fresh: What makes Conspiracy Theory interesting beyond its cleverness and currency is how the filmmakers manipulate our feelings about its protagonist, Jerry, a New York City cab driver.
I Loved It
An absolute must see. It's thought provoking and entertaining. Mel Gibson gives an excellent performance. I have to admit though, having never actually read Catcher in the Rye, I'm now curious to see what exactly it's about... I hope more people stumble across this film, it doesn't seem to be getting enough attention. (especially with only 3 reviews so far, mine included)
makes people who don
makes people who don't believe the lamestream media out to be conspiracy kooks
when in reality it's the other way around
I don't know why, but this movie wants me to go out and buy "The Catcher in the Rye". A must see and a must have!
