We came in halfway through ‘Election’ on tv, and obviously missed a lot of what made it worth seeing. By the time we caught up with it, it was a rather screwball comedy with some funny moments, and an excellent performance by Mathew Broderick (a much underrated comedy actor, I think). But a lot had gone before, apparently, if the reviews are anything to go by. There was no way what we saw would have been nominated for an Oscar, and Reese Witherspoon's
performance was over-the-top and little else. However, you can’t judge a film by its second half, obviously, so I won’t comment further.
Hey, did you hear about that actress who got stabbed to death. Reese...Reese....something...
Nah, with a knife.
