    Grassroots is a movie where bad ideas, because they're the ones championed by the "correct" side, are king. It never acknowledges that sometimes idealism is just another kind of manipulation.

    Perhaps the most curious omission from the movie Grassroots is that there's no mention at all of the classic "Simpsons" episode "Marge vs. the Monorail."

    A campaign movie for viewers who, if they care about politics at all, certainly don't require the full Sorkin treatment.

    Factor in a questionable use of 9/11 footage, and this is one film as misguided as the business-as-usual subject it aims to critique.
