  • Because of the anti-democratic behaviour of the character "Tammy", the movie might be a good example for pro-democratic class-room based education. Tammy seems to be an unhappy teenager, who is unsatisfied with the electoral system as a rotten and elite favouring system useless to people like her. Interestingly, her enthusiastic speech as a candidate directed against the system earns a huge applause. But while the scene is quite charming, it inhabits another truth about anti-democratic feelings, which is not automatically recognized by the audience: That is, that obviously an improper understanding of democracy leads to anti-democratic feelin
  • A witty, well-scripted comedy based on solid characterization. The plot twists are fresh and original. Another fine performace by Witherspoon. An `A-` overall, could have been an `A` if not for a few kinks in directing. Not recommended for younger viewers.
  • Reese Witherspoon was great!
  • Overrated. Tries to be too quirky and it leads to long stretches of boredom
  • Election was one of the best movies I have seen. It didn`t have much publicity but it was very good and insightful
