Irresistible

SEND IN THE CLOWNS THIS SPRING.

Hoping to boost Democrats’ electoral chances in rural America, veteran campaign consultant Gary Zimmer (Steve Carell) throws himself into a small-town mayoral election in Wisconsin. It’s obvious that Jon Stewart dreams of a political landscape that isn’t so blindly polarized. Many critics felt this comedy was outdated, but its biggest problem is that it remains obvious throughout, unable to say or do anything unexpected. Carell, Rose Byrne and Chris Cooper do their best, the latter as a Capra-esque candidate.

2020-U.S. 101 min. Color. Written and directed by Jon Stewart. Cast: Steve Carell (Gary Zimmer), Rose Byrne (Faith Brewster), Chris Cooper (Jack Hastings), Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, Natasha Lyonne… Debra Messing.

Trivia: Co-produced by Stewart; co-executive produced by Brad Pitt.
