It's as wise and funny and revealing as anything ever created by Mike Nichols and Elaine May.

A hilariously entertaining movie.

Primary Colors is by turns hugely entertaining and resoundingly square, beginning as a raucous black comedy about political mechanics and ending as a sober-sided morality tale.

As with Bill Clinton himself, Primary Colors forces one to take the disappointing with the good, the letdown with the promise, the compromises with the hope.
