I have been reading up on Erin Brockovich and have found alot of articles degrading her on what she did. Some say she used the victims to get ahead, others commend her for doing something like that. There is also some out there that bash Julia Roberts for taking on such a role... So now it's your turn to let everyone know what your opinion is on her actions and do you believe that Julia Roberts is wrong to portray someone like Erin Brockovich?

Well I've only seen part of the movie and I thought Julia Roberts did a great job in the perfromance. Everything I've seen on Erin Brockovich though has always been positive. That she did a lot of good for people. Did she do it strictly out of the goodness of her heart? Probably not. She probably did want to get ahead but just because she did doesn't diminish what she accomplished. Many have tried to do that and they don't succeed at helping themselves or anyone else.

Great point. I think that Julia Roberts is an amazing actress. I'm also sure that she had her own agenda to this, and for good reasons like her children having a more secure life and future, but who can blame her for that? Everyone with children wants or should want this, and I personally think that she did alot for everyone. It's just a controversy that I read about on the net and also in the special features on the DVD. Thanks for responding. :)

Julia Roberts is a good actress and portraying somebody who has done great things for a lot of people getting justice is a tough act to follow.Whatever the real Erin Brockovich has in mind when he helped those people, it is not us to judge.

I Completely Disagree...Erin Was the potrayal of a very strong women and her strugle as single mom and julia roberts was perfect in the role and did a gr8 job...i think it was a powerful movie backedup by gr8 acting both by julia roberts and the man who plays her boss..ED...

Well I've only seen the movie and read a few articles about her. From what I've read I think she is a darn strong bright woman that doesn't take anything at face value. She has natural intuition that makes her search for the truth. For what she did for the people of Hinckley I think everything she went through, the dangers she's subjected herself to she deserves a purple heart for crying out loud. I read that she's has some serious health issues also for all the areas of contamination and such that she's tested, and investigated. That alone tells me she is an honorable genuine person.
