John Benjamin Martin,
The wall at the Division of Elections is shown in grey. It is in fact blue. See more »
Listen, everybody feels the same way about what happened to you with the campaign, okay? But Gore went with Coelho because he knew Tony was a fighter. And Tony proved it when he pushed you out. All right? Now, it's time to prove to Al Gore who the real Ron fucking Klain really is. It's time to show Al Gore that Ron Klain is a fucking brawler and that he's not gonna back down from this particular fucking fight.
Anyone ever tell you say 'fuck' a lot?

I had no idea how convoluted and poorly-handled the 2000 presidential election in Florida really was until seeing this movie. I remember that there were comments in the news about hanging chads, etc., but did not know about all of the legal and other issues that are revealed in the movie. It makes you wonder about all elections in all counties and states, on any issue.
It was absolutely riveting the entire way through--just when you think it was going one way, there would be a reversal. Fictional movies wish they had this many plot twists. My least favorite topic, normally, is politics, so for this movie to make an election in one state riveting, is saying a lot.
The performances were excellent, particularly by Kevin Spacey. The dialog and performances were so natural, it was almost like a documentary.
Great job by all!
