I had seen bits and pieces of this movie on tv from time to time, but really nothing great about it. Its just about temptation and how choices can destroy your life.
This movie gave me an election with an r.
THis is a great comedy movie. It's quirky and intelligent. I love the fact that Mathew Broderick (famous for playing a chronic school truent) plays the role of a teacher who loves teaching. And Reese Witherspoon is perfect as the over achiver who is on the outside sweet and wonderful, but has a terrifying desire to be school captain. I loved it.
As far as American teen comedies go Election is definitely high above the average. Its humour is searing and sarcastic, thankfully not holding anything back. Alexander Payne's little worlds can be a little too compassionate for me though, forgiving callous selfishness under the guise of properly representing flawed characters and a moral debate.
Great acting, very tight, funny script - overall this is just a perfectly executed satire.
not the best some parts funny
It's actually worth a watch. A lot better than I expected.
Reece Witherspoon proves that she can really act. Almost painful in parts this isn't your run of the mill comedy but is funny nonetheless.
Great acting/story/direction, enjoyable from start to finish.
