Rating: 1/5 -- Whether playing it sleazy or noble, Mr. Lowe brings little emotional weight to his role.

Another clichéd story of a cynic who gets in touch with his inner idealist..Movies like this give political satire a bad name. Full Review

Rating: C- -- A mixed bag, offering a few winning performances and moments of revelation, while the rest scatters aimlessly, in search of structure director Bill Guttentag doesn't provide. Full Review

Soulless and two-dimensional, Knife Fight is a black hole of disillusion and spin. Full Review

Product Description:

A hotshot political strategist fights to protect his clients while experiencing an unexpected crisis of conscience in this sharp-edged political comedy starring Rob Lowe. Paul Turner (Lowe) has a gift for spin. When the media catches wind of a Kentucky governor's extramarital affairs, Turner has a plan to save the day. Likewise, when a California senator is targeted for blackmail, Turner works overtime to sweep the scandal under the rug. Meanwhile, an ambitious doctor (Carrie-Anne Moss) reveals her intention to run for governor, prompting the seasoned strategist to warn her of the difficult road ahead. Later, just when it seems that Turner can't stoop any lower for the sake of his troublesome clients, he learns that sometimes fighting fair is the only way to come out on top. Eric McCormack, Julie Bowen, and David Harbour co-star.
