Best Political Movie Ever!!
25 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie thinking that it was going to see a serious political statement movie, but instead it was a really funny political comedy. I laugh my butt off. Jason Biggs and David Joel Moore are really really funny together. Im voting to see more movies with those two characters. Plus its a very interesting topic!! The casting all around was excellent. Cedric just rocked the house!! This movie was shot in Seattle, and they were able to capture the beauty and the root of what this town is all about. Go see it, its heart warming, funny and nevertheless provides an important message. The meaning of what Grassroots is all about, is delivered in this movie.
