Goofs

Jane brings her co-worker to Bolivia and introduces her as Sarah LeBlanc. Later in the movie, Buckley introduces LeBlanc to Eduardo and his Bolivian friends as follows: "this is my underage judgmental friend LeBlanc. She is not real. And apparently, she doesn't have a first or last name either.It's just LeBlanc." As Buckley when present when Jane introduces LeBlanc, he knew her first name was Sarah. See more »

Quotes

Pat Candy: [to Jane sitting silently] If you fight with monsters for too long, you become a monster. And if you stare into the abyss too long..."Whatever the fuckin' rest of it is. I don't know...

20 April 2016 | by (Townsville, Texas) – See all my reviews

'Our Brand is Crisis' is based upon the apparently true story of the wholly cynical manipulation of a presidential campaign in a Latin American country. With such subject matter, one would expect it to come across a lot more dark but unfortunately, this movie has a fairly laconic, wishy-washy feel to it. The promised head-butting between the two leads (Thornton and Bullock) comes across more as half-hearted ironic flirtation. The attempt at sentimentality at the end seems forced. I believe this movie would have played better as an unrepentant dark comedy, and also get the sense that it should have been a made-for-t.v. movie. There are some terrific location shots, apparently filmed in Bolivia, where the movie is set.
