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

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (66 movies items)

"18.1, PC Kelpo high school-elokuva, joka repii ne satunnaiset onnistuneet huumorihetkensä hyvän maun puolelta. Kerrontaa varjostaa miellyttävyys ja leffa sisältää jotain ajatuksen siementäkin, muttei loppupeleissä herätä suurempia tuntemuksia."

"17.01.2015 "My leg wasn't bugging me too much and the weather was so nice, and every day after school Lisa and I would go to her house to fuck and have a hot tub." This is still Reese Witherspoon's best performance. Probably Matthew Broderick and Chris Klein's best performances as well, but that's not much of an achievement."

"Watched: 5/8/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: A fun movie that unfortunately feels incomplete and dry as a whole. I LOVED Matthew Broderick here, and really thought he did a fantastic job. Reese Witherspoon is pretty good as well. The story is an easy one, and a clever one at that, but it felt too generic in the end. Nothing popped out at me as really memorable, and it could have been because Alexander Payne helmed it, and my expectations were too high. Having said all that, 'Election' is very much wor"

Honestly, I was expecting a little more but I must admit, it was still pretty good. Indeed, Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Klein were all perfectly cast and they all gave some really good performances. Furthermore, if you compare it to all those generic comedies taking place in highschool, this one was really original and gave a really different point of view with some pitch black humor.
