  1. There's nothing new here, but Frank provides a genial reminder that politics doesn't always have to take the low road.
  2. Reviewed by: Ken Eisner
    A fascinating portrait of an era, as well as of a unique public servant.
  3. The outspoken congressman is just as entertaining as his liberal fans already know him to be.
  4. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    So while the facts of Frank's actual political career tend to fall by the wayside, Everly treats us to an insightful look at a remarkable public figure who first became famous for what he does in private.
  5. Squanders its potentially rich possibilities.
  6. Reviewed by: Ed Halter
    Let's Get Frank is hardly frank enough.
  7. Has no interest in exploring Mr. Frank's family background or love life. This frustrating lack of context leaves you wanting a lot more in the way of texture.
  8. 38
    Bart Everly followed Frank around for two years, yet his film seems to consist mostly of regurgitated C-Span and news footage from the period, interspersed with asides from the outspoken liberal.
  9. 30
    Everly tries to patch together a profile out of borrowed news clips and shoddy videography. In the process, Frank's charisma and force never emerge.
