Everyone who doesn't like this movie is just wrong. This sharp and deeply funny portrait of a high school election and the efforts of a teacher to control the outcome is still Alexander Payne's best movie (he went on to make 'Sideways', 'About Schmidt', 'The Descendants', 'Nebraska', and others). Great performances by Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick, and the entire cast. One of my all-time favorite movies.
