Reviews
Mine: This would be funny, if it did not seem so possible. Still as a political thriller it is good stuff. Funny and scary at the same time. Hoffman is stands out in a great ensemble cast.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Before elections, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to "fabricate" a war in order to cover-up a presidential sex scandal.
