Beatty has fashioned a hilarious morality tale that delivers a surprisingly potent, angry message beneath the laughs.
90
Chicago Reader
Warren Beatty sounds off angrily and shrewdly about politics, delivering what is possibly his best film and certainly his funniest and livliest.
88
USA Today
Warren Beatty's uproariously rude Bulworth is 90% triumph.

Chicago Tribune
His movie isn't a surgical attack at this problem and that; it's a cluster bomb intended to reap destruction, make a mess and jolt all who see it to react.
80
Beatty's contribution to the ranks of recent political satire is bold, merciless and frequently very funny, and his performance is just plain fearless.
70
This is a great liberal movie, which is to say, it will be loved most passionately by great liberals, and despised by the conservatives it contemptuously fails to notice.
70
Its best moments come from witnessing the Senator's inspired unraveling, not from watching where it will end.
60
Bulworth shoots along with great vigor, and its non-politically correct jabs are occasionally exhilarating.
58
Entertainment Weekly
It's a tease of a satire that never really follows through on its audacious premise.

As a movie, it's a disaster. As political speech, it's imprecise, shrill and sometimes clichéd, but it's also alive.
