Election -- Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) is Tracy Flick, a straight "A" go-getter who's determined to be president of Carver High's student body. But when popular teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick, The Producers) observes the zealous political locomotive that is Tracy, he decides to derail her obsessive overachieving by recruiting an opposition candidate (Chris Klein, American Pie) - with disastrous results! Here's a smart, witty and hilarious jab at high school politics helmed by award-winning director Alexander Payne (Sideways).

Quotes:
From Election (1999)
Dave Novotny: It know it seems crazy, but, Jim, what I'm trying to tell you is that Tracy and I are totally, totally... in love.
Jim McAllister: [in disbelief] In love?
Dave Novotny: Yeah. It's serious. She inspires me in ways that Linda never has. She even wants to read my novel.
Jim McAllister: But you haven't written your novel.
Dave Novotny: That's the whole point! I've got the whole thing right here, I just need to get it out there. And Tracy wants me to write it so she can read it. It's beautiful.
