American politics ? Very strange concept since Bill Clinton seems to have got up to all sorts of naughty stuff while he was in The White House and nobody it seemed could care less , then during the 2004 Presidential election between Kerry and Dubya the number one issue for voters was " morals " . Is there anything more fickle than an American voter I ask ?
THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH centres around Alison Reid a television journalist who senses a story about Presidential candidate Senator Hunter who is such a dirty dog when it comes to women Bill Clinton has to lock up Monica . Oh and at no time is there any ambiguity - Hunter is completely guilty of sexual harassment , anything in a skirt is fair game for Horny Hunter .
I think this script might have confused the previous commentator who says the story doesn't make any sense after the shock twist at the end . It does actually make sense but because it's a TVM with Jane Seymour playing Alison Reid the audiences expectation is somewhat shaken when it becomes clear that it's not a self righteous moral story - It's an intelligent amoral story where the media is a double edged sword . I was slightly amazed the way the story turned out since as is often the case with these TVMs it's very run of the mill for the most part but the ending is totally unexpected which lifts THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH above countless other chick flick TVMs
