Synopsis


Our Brand Is Crisis
This satirical comedy starring Sandra Bullock as a political consultant gives viewers an inside look at the high-stakes, win-at-all-costs world of politics. Bullock stars as "Calamity" Jane Bodine, who is hired to work on the campaign of a Bolivian presidential candidate who has fallen behind in the polls. She faces off against her rival Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), who is working on the opponent's campaign and is also looking for every opportunity to antagonize Jane. The film is loosely based on the 2005 documentary of the same name by Rachel Boynton. Directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, George Washington). Produced by Oscar-winners George Clooney and Grant Heslov. ~ Jennifer Lackman, Rovi

    Great title and enjoyable movie. 1st of all, you will enjoy if you are a Sandra Bullock fan. You will also enjoy if you are a fan of political theater and understand the public relations (PR) world. It makes for great entertainment but it's sad how true it all is. This movie explores what happens when your moral compass kicks in and affects job performance. Great cast with great performances!

    Brings the dirt of politics to light

    We all know it happens and are sometimes surprised at the aggressiveness with which it does. The dirt, underhanded tricks, money, adult situations and even camaraderie between opponents is disturbing. Why we allow this in our Democracies is troubling. Entertainment is what we all seem to relate to and Bullock and Thornton deliver.

    Interesting movie about a presidential campaign in Latin America. Sandra Bullock plays a jaded political advisor who is drawn into a last chance opportunity to beat an old foe at the marketing game. Good acting with an interesting twist at the end that gives one something to think upon.

    Quite honestly, I would watch Sandra Bullock in almost anything, but she does make it hard sometimes. This is a mess of a movie, and while Bullock almost never turns in a bad performance, she's really pushing it here. Probably worth a miss.

    The interaction between the professionals in a social and professional manner was quite bizarre. It was like an ongoing tease on both ends. I'm sure I'll be watching this one a few more times.

    Sandra and Billy Bob battle throughout this thought-provoking satire and really make this movie. It was better than just OK, but not a top movie. The ending had a great twist to it though.

    If you are interested in latin America history this film will be good for you. The script is not the best (neither the performances) but this film keeps your attention during all film.

    The movie is based on a true story political campaign that takes place in Bolivia. Sandra B and Billy Bob battle against one another with each representing different candidates.
