    Not sure how Election slipped off my radar but it looks like a fun 1.5 hours 🙂 I always vote for comedy. Many of the debates provide comedy relief.

      Good point! No shortage of comic relief!

    After looking at the trailer I remembered it… but don’t think I saw it. That looks great. Favorite election movie? Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Does that work? I wish my husband was here, he’s the movie buff. Anything with Matthew Broderick I love.

    I like all of movies Alexander Payne has made with co-writer Jim Taylor. Citizen Ruth is hysterical, Election terrific, Sideways my favorite (a rare movie better than the original novel) and About Schmidt bittersweet.

      Thanks – I’ll have to catch “Citizen Ruth.”
