Regular politics, maybe...
Regular politics, maybe, ordinary film, yes. Acting: Judd Nelson fresh from "Off the Hip" made the mistake of another law-type film and while not a complete failure, can't recoup the original taste of hungry young man in search of Truth, Justice and the 'American Way'; Justine Bateman, while perfectly cast in 'Family Ties', can't justify any acting ability since. The rest were ok and the supposed reasons to watch after the first 'teaser' promised more than it gave. A movie to watch only if there is little else to entertain you.
