Critic Reviews

  1. 20
    The embodiment of every conservative paranoid's slathering fantasies about Paula Jones, Vince Foster and Whitewater.
  2. Devolves into such utter ludicrousness, the best response (other than avoiding the thing in the first place) is to laugh.
  3. 20
    Promises to speed up the pacemakers of grumpy old Republicans with its ruthless indictment of the unzipped presidency.

    Unusual premise, good drama in the one-way mirror scene, but eventually the film just drags and is unenlightened and predictable.
