As Hollywood is known as a Democratic bastion, it's always an eye-opener when we learn about which people in Tinseltown are Republicans. In "Rated 'R': Republicans in Hollywood", Jesse Moss interviews some of them and focuses on Arnold Schwarzenegger's run for governor. Sadly, Moss never looks at specific political issues or challenges what some of these people think.
For the most part, it was mostly interesting to see affirmed conservatives (e.g., Drew Carey, John Milius) being civil, as we might assume that they sit around ranting all day. Still, the documentary would have been better if Moss had looked at the issues.
