A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. The interesting thing about this flick was above all to see Reese Witherspoon who, before starring in all those (boring) romantic comedies, showed up in this highschool satire. Honestly, I was expecting a little more but I must admit, it was still pretty good. Indeed, Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon and Chr... read more

This is one of those films that not too many know about but they definitely need to. Tammy Metzler was the perfect opposition for the Tracy Flick character in the film.

This film is a pitch-perfect gem that flew under the radar when it was first released. The plot is straight forward: high school student body election, the beloved teacher who's personal life is unraveling behind the scenes, the popular jock, his lesbian sister who emerges as a cult hero, and the overachieving mastermind who plans to win the election no matter what the cost. There's excellent ac... read more

" Political satires don't get much smarter and more entertaining than this. Election makes sure to grab you from the very beginning, quickly introducing the story from various people's perspectives, and from then on, you simply won't want to stop watching. I do wish someone better than Chris Klein had been cast in his role, but aside from that, the cast is pitch-perfect. (A few minutes after I finished watching Election, I realized Legally Blonde 2 was on TV, and I saw a few minutes of it, an"

"Kivaa mustaa komediaa Alexander Paynelta. Tarina kyllä toimii ja käsikirjoitus on näppärää sekä täynnä kovaa tekstiä jopa aika ajoin. Siitä plussat. Mutta onhan tämä jenkkilän koulun sisällä tapahtuva kikkailu jo useaan kertaan nähty. Mean Girls jopa toimii ja iskee huumorillaan paljon paremmin. Tietysti tämä elokuva maistuisi paremmalta jos vuosi olisi 1999, mutta kun ei ole. Witherspoon ja Broderick loistavat. Silti keskivertoa. "
