Joe Hackman's rating of the film Game Change

While obviously truncated and dramatized in parts, Jay Roach's Game Change is an engaging, entertaining portrayal of the disastrous 2008 Republican presidential campaign. Steve Schmidt is on the record as saying the film is very accurate, which makes sense considering it's largely told from his perspective. It's all about Julianne Moore, who is a great Palin, dumb as a pile of rocks but dynamic all the same.
