(nl) wrote: Teen movies from the 90s and early 2000s often don't know how to appeal to their crowd, often shoving the theme of teen fun and constant partying in the viewers' faces: Election is so much different, and is one of the best of its genre.A rather welcoming and helpful but in the end a bit demented history teacher, Jim McCallister, authorizes a high school election for student body president, between the overachieving maniac Tracy Flick, the idiotic but kind jock Paul Metzler, and the angsty lesbian Tammy Metzler, Paul's adopted sister. McCallister's personal life and a will to stop Tracy from winning puts him at a battle with himself and his entire life.Election is amazing. Teen movies are often written by adults who don't know what teens act like or do, so it's often overexaggerated and cliched. Election not so much focuses on students partying, but a teacher who's had enough. It's excellently written, and the character Tracy Flick is so well done by Witherspoon and is such a great character. Every character in this film is demented, like it or not. It's a great film, though. So well written and a great adaptation.

(it) wrote: Kitchy, quirky, awkward - and then Madonna steps in and brings the cool - saving the day. A decent rom-com flick that is greater than the sum of its parts.Tho she can't save the whole thing, Madonna steps into this bad tv movie about a bored and desperate housewife, and makes this role her very own, raising it well above where it was heading without her.Wisely, the director let Madonna do her thing, so it all winds up better for it.Honestly, there are more comic misfires than not which leaves you not really laughing. The awkward housewife bit detracts, but the story of her following Madonna gets going, and this becomes an adventure that is light and fun, and keeps your attention. What u may then appreciate is the urban, scrappy New York scene which is perfectly-synced here from the 80's.Even now, Madonnas song featured here (Get) Into The Groove bursts out resiliently, just as Madonna's career did then. So, whether a nostalgic trip, or a fresh look back, if you get past the mediocre mystery caper, you will find the kitchy fun and light romance satisfying.When I saw this with friends in its original theatrical release, we just about lost our minds when Into The Groove came on as part of the movie. I will always remember that moment. The movie comes off as dated now, but Madonna and her hijinx captured here on film remains fresh and interesting.If you only watch it for her, you wont be disappointed.3 sparkly sunglasses out of 5
