A desperate journo will do anything for a story!
28 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at a preview screening many years ago. One of those strange pictures that is well made, capably scripted and directed, yet remains a rather underwhelming proposition.

The story of a journo, down on his creativity and opportunity, probably due in no small part to the former. Not the most scrupulous of his profession, he conspires to pervert the course of Parliament by setting up one of the senators. Things do not go according to plan A, and he soon finds himself anywhere but in control. Unfortunately he does not HAVE a back-up Plan B.

Before you can say, "Hold it, I lied!" he is caught up in a dastardly plot to assassinate the Leader of the Opposition!

Maybe after a few beers it gets better!
