Film critic Gary Morris noted that the film Camille 2000 is "a breathless series of ultra-plush environments that resonate with Italian haute design of the period"[2] Critic Marcus Doidge referred to Camille 2000 as a "cult" favorite and noted the film "offered up way more drama than I expected from it. The story perfectly balances sex with drama and genuinely gives us a couple that are getting drawn closer and closer together, even when we know they would probably be better off apart at times".[3] On Rotten Tomatoes, audiences liked the film Camille 2000 by 68%, although critics panned the film by 17%.[4] Roger Ebert was not favorably impressed with Camille 2000 and gave the film a one-star review.[5]
