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

BAMF posted a review 2 months ago

“Initial Thought: I have been fairly curious about this one lately. I have seen it on a few lists even. I do adore some Reese Witherspoon. That's pretty much the main reason I'm going to go ahead and check this out now.

Characters/Acting: Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon in one movie! I've always liked both of them. So to see them together here is pretty neat. I guess it should have been obvious that Matthew Broderick plays the teacher, but before watching this I thought he was a student against Reese's character. Reese Witherspoon plays sociopathic so well. It also kind of makes her even more adorable here. Chris Klein is a goofball and usually I don't care for him too much. I did like his character her though. Matthew Broderick gives a pretty good performance as expected” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: April (35 movies items)

"April 14 "Larry, we're not electing the fucking Pope here. Just tell me who won." This is by far better than the other two Alexander Payne movies that came out recently. This movie had a good amount of funny moments and it's also a pretty good satire as well. While I would probably rank this movie below Sideways and About Schmidt, I still really enjoyed this movie and it was just a really good comedy."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (253 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."
