A suicidally disillusioned liberal politician puts a contract out on himself and takes the opportunity to be bluntly honest with his voters by affecting the rhythms and speech of hip-hop music and culture.
And his performance elevates this made-for-television effort into an enjoyable 94 minutes of a competent cast and crew and a grown-up script which never gets maudlin and doesn't hammer home the emotional points. It is now released in one of those cheaper DVDS which includes nothing extra, not even promos (PTL)with the bonus of a bare bones price to match. Sherry Springfield is wonderfully natural in a great performance. Clint Black should stick to his country and western performances, here he's not a very convincing doctor, all twinkly-eyed even when a level of profundity is called for. Good music and the rest of the cast enhance this final showcase for Jason, looking feeble but going out with a bang. 7 out of 10. Lovely music by Alan Williams.
