well acted

by Tom on 6/23/2012

this is a very well acted and equally surprisingly funniest and smartest movie. John Travolta has done a superb job with his character and personally I would think its his best job yet. Mike Nichols and Elaine, equally have done their best jobs on their side.

Product Overview

Jack stanton, a virtually unknown southern governor on a hilarious, heart-wrenching roller coaster ride to the presidency. It's a savagely funny satire that ultimately leads to the white house, with plenty of shocking surprises along the way.

Review When Primary Colors sticks to [Joe] Klein's book, it sings... The acting, too is superb, from Emma Thompson's button-down version of Hilary to Billy Bob Thornton's deadpan riff on Clinton's Cajun troubleshooter James Carville. Kathy Bates also rises to the occasion as the bombastic, lunatic Stanton spin doctor Libby Holden. And Travolta as the petulant, irresponsible but genuinely caring and charming Jack Stanton isn't just in top form; he's the best p.r. Bill Clinton could ever hope for.

Review ... Nichols and his once and current partner, screenwriter Elaine May... make a funny, knowing, ultimately judicious film... If you mix the primary colors red, yellow and blue, the result is black. But this is no black comedy. It is a wistful story, about honor (Nichols says) and (we say) about the joy and pain of an idealist's love.
