As a political junkie (whose best friend is a ginger lobbyist named Elizabeth, oddly enough)... I really wanted this movie to be better than it was.

The writing was both trying too hard to be complex and weirdly too slow (aspiring to be a more cynical West Wing), while explaining too much outside the realm of believability (there were a lot of "let me ask a question so you can explain to the audience this principle/mechanism that would seem to be a major part of the job that I've been at for a while" moments).

I'd love to see this if Mamet or Sorkin got a hand at the script. The cast was great and did their best with some rough material.
