One of the funniest, shrewdest, smartest movies in recent memory.
90
Election is a bracingly intelligent adult comedy that shrewdly captures adolescence.
90
Resonates with the fluorescent horror of real-life high school, something few movies about this generation have managed to successfully capture.

Wickedly funny, scathingly original new comedy.

When it comes to eloquently telling it like it is, Election puts the nation's political pundits to shame.

A terrific work of political and social satire set in a Nebraska high school that has the intelligence of (the less coherent) "Rushmore," while painting a much darker picture of politics and human relationships.
63
Entertaining but frustratingly uneven.
