Entertainment Reviews:

Variety -
"...[An] insidiously funny satire....Smart, sophisticated..."
Sight and Sound - 10/??/1999
"...ELECTION is a wonderfully acidulous satire....[The film] turns the usual conventions of the high-school comedy on their head..."
Total Film - 06/01/2000
"...Briskly paced, painfully funny and pretty much unmissable..." -- 4 out of 5 stars
New York Times - 04/23/1999
"...Mr. Broderick knows how to make a fool of himself in very funny ways, and he gives a sneakily good performance here..."
USA Today - 04/23/1999
"...Devilishly subversive....Scathing, smart and serious-funny....When it comes to eloquently telling it like it is, ELECTION puts the nation's political pundits to shame..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/23/1999
"...Sharp and merciless....A cheerful nightmare that knows just where it wants to go and uses precisely calibrated comic effects to get there..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 04/30/1999
"...A wicked satire....[Witherspoon] hits her full stride in ELECTION..."

Product Description:

Director Alexander (CITIZEN RUTH) Payne's second film, based on the novel by Tom Perotta, takes the scandal and mudslinging associated with presidential elections and transposes them to a high school election for student council president in Nebraska- with impossibly sharp, satirical results. Matthew Broderick, in a reversal of FERRIS BUELLER, plays Jim McAllister, a teacher who will stop at nothing to prevent perfect Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon), who is running unopposed, from winning the election. Jim, who bears a personal grudge against Tracy, goads a popular but dim football player (Chris Klein) into running against her. This spurs on a series of strange events (both madcap and surprisingly sexual), which add up to an uncommonly funny high school film for adults. Performances are great all-around, and Payne uses shifting narration and a series of freeze frames to give the film a rich and layered feel.
