    What starts out as an apt satire on the politician's role in American society spirals off into a muddled, politically sketchy head-scracther, featuring God-awful ADR/mixing and a fundamentally unsatisfying conclusion.

    Absolutely intolerable! 110 minutes of my life was ruthlessly robbed from me.

    This movie is THE reason a rating of 0 is a possibility. I have never walked out on a film, but should have on this one. There are no redeeming qualities about this film. Don't walk away... run!

  1. It's a tease of a satire that never really follows through on its audacious premise.
  2. Warren Beatty sounds off angrily and shrewdly about politics, delivering what is possibly his best film and certainly his funniest and livliest.

    Beatty's contribution to the ranks of recent political satire is bold, merciless and frequently very funny, and his performance is just plain fearless.
