More relevant now that Rove is out of the White House!
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can barley describe this film without a spoiler alert every other sentence so i won't do it. I will say that it is great story telling that just doesn't go where you'd expect it to or where YOU personally might want it to go! It's one of those fine, and fun, examples of film making where every viewer will take something different away from it depending on what point of view they went in to see it. Many times political satire will take a point of view and keep hitting that nail on the head. Karl Rove I Love You is more like a game of Wack'a Mole! Just when you think they're gonna put another nail in Rove's coffin TWO MORE pop up somewhere else. In these times of Obama Mania no film could be more relevant to our time.
