Entertaining but frustratingly uneven.
100
One of the funniest, shrewdest, smartest movies in recent memory.
90
Resonates with the fluorescent horror of real-life high school, something few movies about this generation have managed to successfully capture.
90
Wickedly funny, scathingly original new comedy.
90
Election is a bracingly intelligent adult comedy that shrewdly captures adolescence.
88
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.

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