An incumbent Representative embroiled in personal scandal faces a no-holds-barred challenge from a naive newcomer funded by two unscrupulous billionaire lobbyist brothers.
Despite being mostly a comedy, this is technically Dylan McDermott's second appearance in a political film, the first being In The Line of Fire (1992) and the third being Olympus Has Fallen (2013).
I heard your nickname was Tickleshits in high school, I'm gonna see if it's true!
Tim Wattley: Don't you dare shit your pants, Marty!
When Tim Wattley is talking to Cam after interrupting their family time and sending his kids to their room we see Mitzy walking down the hall away from them. However, in the very next shot she is right next to Marty again.
During the credits there is an additional scene depicting the trial with Motch brothers. The scene also partly explains the origins of Tim Wattley.
An Extended Cut running an extra 10 minutes is available on the Blu-ray. As well as inserting new scenes not seen in the theatrical cut, the drunk-driving scene plays out in a significantly different way. Cam has new dialogue as he steals the cop car, and he doesn't lose control and hit a cow - he realises what he's done, turns the car around (hitting a dumpster) and then drives back to the cop, who arrests him.
