Reviews
Mine: Fun and serious at the same time. Give a really good idea of what it is like to be part of a political campaign.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Dynamic adaptation of political roman clef by Anonymous (Joe Klein) about a Southern governor's Presidential race--and an idealistic staffer (Lester) who sees in him both a true believer in people power and an insatiable womanizer who'll do anything to cover his tracks. Travolta is extraordinarily good in a Bill Clinton-esque characterization, and Nichols has cast every part around him with an unerring eye. Bates is a powerhouse as Travolta's longtime political conscience and troubleshooter. Smart, funny, foul-mouthed screenplay by Elaine May. Super 35.
