Sparks fly, tempers flares, heads turn, and romance blossoms for this mismatched pair of campaigners in the frantic and intoxicating days leading up to Election Day.

Politically biased hack job
25 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like romantic comedies and even though this movie was supposed to have a political backdrop I watched it anyways. I thought that this movie would be a remake of "Speechless" with Geena Davis and Micheal Keaton. First off this movie is not a romance movie with a political backdrop, but instead it is a politically biased hack job with a romance as the backdrop. The movie doesn't waist any opportunity to show republicans in a bad light and Obama and democrats as the best thing to ever happen the America. Save yourself the waist of time that is this movie and if you are looking for a romantic movie set to a backdrop of politics then watch "Speechless" instead. Speechless was not a great movie, but compared to this it is.
