Light political comedy
There are no bad movies or TV shows with Steve Carell. He turns bad into normal and normal into good. His charisma works on set as an additional light source, and this film about political intrigue is no exception.
Somewhere in the American wilderness, among the terry thickets of Republicans, a viral video appears of a local retired warrior giving verbal backlash to the local mayor, protecting immigrants, and a team of capital's political strategists clings to this, as an opportunity to win the district over to the Democrats' side. Unable to resist such an opportunity, the head of the headquarters picks up a suitcase of selected political technologies and rushes into the hinterland on a business jet, dropping asparagus to bring the light of democracy to the collective farm. Of course, political opponents are also on the alert and send, with the hope of breaking through the enemy's rear, their main political technologist, a longtime opponent of the character.
Wonderful light humor about 'shut up these cows, their lowing knocks our candidate down' and about how the city boys turn up their noses a lot, which has to be wiped off by the whole village. If in the legendary 'Wag the Dog' the scale was for the whole country, then here it is rather chambered tomfoolery, homemade.
7.4 out of 10
A high score for a rare genre of light political comedy, while shooting very snipingly at the sore spots of the modern realities of the United States.
