(ag) wrote: I agree fully with the critical consensus. I really looked forward to the movie due to the cast and the soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat, but the narrative is "curiously slack" and the drive is absent.
(br) wrote: There is true beauty in this film, portraying a once broken boy, and his road to success, overall this movie was awesome but my only issue is the actor who played Paul, not that he did a bad job, but the actor didn't suit this film.

(au) wrote: This was the second film by Alexander Payne, after the funny but broad Citizen Ruth and before the incredible run of About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants, and Nebraska. It's funnier and more focused than his first film, but not quite as memorable or poignant as the next four he would go on to make. It's a nice twist on the typical high-school movie in that we see things from the perspective of an adult (Matthew Broderick) rather than one of the students. The film focuses on the conflict between Broderick's character, a teacher, and Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon), an extremely aggressive and ambitious student dead-set on becoming student council president. The initially calm and respectable teacher, driven by his annoyance at the student, sets out to sabotage her campaign, with humorously disastrous results. All of the performances here are sharp, especially Witherspoon. You can kind of sympathize with the teacher, but at a certain point you start to realize just what a schmuck he's being. The movie's social commentary perhaps isn't as pointed as it might have been, but that's ok. It's still a very smart and enjoyable little movie.
