Storyline

The late Irish hero fireman's (Lefty) charming son William M. "Billy" Dylan (25) is elected as independent, youngest Massachusettes state representative. He joins the Democrats, Congress seat Beacon Hill's legendary rooster, House speaker Charles T. "Chick" Mudoon, who trusts the customary campaign debt check will reel the rookie in as another meek party soldier. However the naive, naturally noble new boy, who doesn't hesitate to single-handedly fight off two skinhead gay-bashers, has and follows his own conscience. He defeats Muldoon's dodgy attempts to prevent a congressional committee investigating state police school cadet abuse, which would compromise his deputy, majority leader Spanky Reardon. It seems Muldoon's revenged when Dylan gets framed for the alleged violent abuse of a two-faced congressional aid. However, there's a more devious, ambitious plot behind two abuse cases and a staged corrupt payment for a memorial hospital wing. Written by KGF Vissers

I didn't know it was suppose to be a comedy!
26 January 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie at a free screening. It was one of those movies that was so bad it was funny. The script was to blame. The script needed to be rewritten several more times to work out all the bad dialog out, and clichés. There were several scenes were a man dressed in a trench coat, was in the shadows making threatening phone calls to people. You really don't get much more clichéd than that. It was unintentionally funny.

I felt like I was watching a 17 year old student's first attempt at making a film, but if it was a 17 year old student I'd give it a lot more credit. This was just really bad.

I would make one strong suggestion to the filmmakers. Make a documentary about Beacon Hill, and Massachusetts politics. Look at why the eastern part dominates the western part of Mass, and why. Find out why we are a democratic state yet keep voting for republican governors. A documentary would have been a lot better than what I sat through.

Bottom line is this movie was terrible. Though with a few friends, and a keg of beer it might be good. No, I'm sorry even booze won't help.
