Election is a deft dark comedy with a resemblance to "Rushmore." It's smart no matter what. Full Review

American satire rarely comes more winning than Election, an exuberantly caustic comedy that shows the symbiotic relationship between political go-get-'em-ism and moral backsliding. Full Review

Washington Post
The satire of the season, a hilarious, razor-sharp indictment of the American Dream. Full Review

Election has the sharpest satire of any teen movie made in years. Like the best lampoons, it attacks by exaggerating reality ever-so-slightly and targeting a broad range of subjects. Full Review
