Simon Sez is a 1999 spy action-comedy film starring Dennis Rodman, Dane Cook, and John Pinette. The film was directed by Kevin Alyn Elders, and the score was composed by Brian Tyler.
Interpol agent Simon goes on a mission in France to save a kidnapped girl and defeat an arms dealer.
In 1998, Variety announced that Ringo Lam would direct Simon Sez with Kevin Elders. Lam later only contributed to the film as a producer.
The film was released in 1999, opening in Los Angeles on September 24 and then in New York on September 25. The film grossed a total of $292,152.
Simon Sez had an extremely negative reception by critics. The New York Times wrote a scathing review, saying that "its plot seems as if it had been fished out of the wastebaskets of writers who have written scores of better examples of the genre dating at least as far back as Dr. No in 1962." but praising Rodman as "inescapably watchable". Entertainment Weekly gave the film a D- rating referring to the film as "a shoddy mess" and "a bargain-basement rip-off of Ronin and that Rodman was "yesterday’s threatening omni-sexual exhibitionist turned today’s overexposed cliché."
