Female Student: Is there much interaction between the two campaings? I mean, between Democrats and Republicans?
Kevin: [to Julia] Ah, I believe this is your area.
Julia: Uh, it's discouraged for campaigns to interact. For instance, if one speechwriter were to date another, they might reveal something crucial about the campaign. Some campaigns have spies for just this purpose, whose job it is to follow the speechwriter, and to seduce her--

Very enjoyable
30 January 2006 | by (Nyiregyhaza, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Although it won't win any awards, it's a light, cute romantic comedy that should be taken as just that. There are no twists and surprises, and unless you have an extremely weak heart, you won't pass out from tension.

Michael Keaten and Geena Davis, star as campaign speech writers who fall in love. The catch? They're speech writers for each other's opponents. Keaten for the Republican and Davis for the Democrat. You can basically sum up what the movie is about, and how it will end. There are no big surprises, and although these kinds of movies aren't normally my taste, I love this one. It has a certain quality that's hard to deny and the chemistry between the two actors is always there, and is very noticeable.

I would recommend the film the anyone. It's light-hearted and sweet. A great watch.
