The ever-gorgeous Moore does a great impersonation of much-maligned Sarah Palin, but the film predictably doesn't venture beyond the territory of Culture Wars; in other words, the film won't change anyone's perceptions about the U.S. political system as a whole, because attention is so squarely on the famously uninformed Palin ("I'm not sure how much she knows about foreign policy" says an advisor. No shit.)
