Kitchen sink.
23 July 2003 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

Every single possible way to smear and dig in a political race is used in this movie. Each of the two political foes gets to go through both good and bad moments as they claw to office. Former Stand up comedian Paul Rodriquez and the unappreciated CCH Pounder play the running mates well with Cliff Robertson(Spider-Man) as the retiring councilman, Una Damon as the political adviser to CCH Pounder, and Peter Krause("Sports Night" and "Six Feet Under") as the reporter. Eighties survivors Paul Bartel and Jennifer Balgobin have little roles. An odd little movie with a nice sense of humor that I purchased for Jennifer Balgobin and ended up not disappointed even with the usual short screen time of Jennifer Balgobin. No racial group is painted in an unfair way.
