Critic Reviews of "Election"Chicago ReaderAugust 24, 2010
The treatment of this touchy material is impressive, neither gratuitous nor mincing, but this 1999 satirical comedy doesn't really go anywhere.Chicago ReaderAugust 24, 2010
An instant classic, Alexander Payne's 1999 high school comedy seems even more scathing now that we're losing control of our own election machinery.Associated PressAugust 24, 2010
Election at first has the feel of a simple work. But don't let that fool you; it's a complex, deep tale.Boston GlobeAugust 25, 2007
You've got to laugh at Witherspoon's tightly wound Little Miss Perfect, rising at dawn to do her hair and encase herself in a preppy look before baking cupcakes to pass out at school as vote-getters in her campaign for student council president.VarietyFebruary 18, 2006
A dark, insidiously funny satire on the self-involved ways otherwise rational people can allow narrow personal agendas to lead them astray to the point of self-destruction.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
This remarkable film may be set in high school, but its satiric take on moral corruption, political chicanery, adultery and seduction is anything but juvenile.Seanax.comJune 16, 2016
Alexander Payne's wicked satire of power and (social) politics set in the overheated incubator of a high school student body election is as sharp and perceptive now as it was in 1999.Turner Classic Movies OnlineDecember 17, 2011
Payne and Taylor are equal opportunity satirists and their sly wit dismantles everything from high school culture to suburban complacency.EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 17, 2011
This clever, biting high-school satire is arguably Alexander Payne's most original and accomplished film (and so far he has made only good pictures).Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Dark high school comedy is best for older teens.TV GuideAugust 24, 2010
Surprise! An intelligent, well-written high school story that offers some real ideas to chew on, rather than simply wallowing in nubile flesh.Movie ViewsFebruary 03, 2009
Took the sleaze of the teen comedy and spun it into something that's both hugely entertaining and extremely insightful.
