Amazing True Story
I saw this movie years ago and purchased it to see it again. It's an interesting look at how someone can mislead, fool and manipulate people into believing every word they say as well as protecting them. Stephen Glass is no exception and it is incredulous that he got away with it for so long at a well read national magazine. The characters are realistic and it's almost sad at the end to see them realize so much destruction and yet, Stephen is continuing to try and manipulate the situation. In addition to the movie, in the extra features, there is the interview with Stephen Glass from 60 Minutes which makes the DVD all the more worth it.

Wonderful movie to own for less than the price of a movie ticket
I had seen the movie some time ago so I knew what I was getting but it was a movie I wanted to add to my private collection. As a retired editor it was especially interesting to me how Stephen Glass could manufacture stories and get away with it (for awhile). I found the movie riveting and would recommend it to anyone who is tired of romantic comedies and violence. Great movie!!

Shattered Glass: A weak actor shines in this movie
If you liked Catch Me If You Can and the story of Frank Abignail Jr ... you should love this movie. You should also appreciate it if you are a blogger or journalist. It makes you feel like you have a lot more credibility when you see that a very well respected journalist made up more than half of his stories. (This seems to be true of a lot of journalism lately - this movie shows you how easily fake stories could make it through the cracks - even at well respected news sources.)
This shows the beginning of the blogging phenomenon - and how a small team of bloggers took down an immensely respected political magazine over a technology issue.
This film was based on a true story of Stephen Glass who wrote for several magazines including the Washington DC political magazine The New Republic.
I think Hayden Chistiansen is a weak actor, but he plays a very convincing Stephen Glass in this movie.
This is a very focused movie that I would assume only writers will truly enjoy.
The extras on the DVD (that include an actual 60 Minutes Interview with Stephen Glass) - is very helpful in understanding some of the background and the obnoxiousness of this guy's pathological personality)Read full review

If you liked Hayden before....
I purchased this movie because I loved watching Hayden Christiensen in Star Wars and Life as a House. Not knowing much about the movie, the cast list looked pretty promissing. But, I wasn't too impressed with the movie itself. The plot was very serious and the movie is one of those that never seems to end. And if you ever thought Hayden was a babe.... this movie will ruin that for life! He'll remind you of those creepy guys at work that you try avoid. And being a former reporter myself, watching him in this movie made things even worse. So my advice to everyone who likes Hayden, don't watch this movie. For everyone else who might like seriously depressing plots and tails of people's misfortune... enjoy!
