Movie Review: "Game Change" (2012)

I watched the HBO movie "Game Change" about Sarah Palin's trials & tribulations on the 2008 election campaign trail. It was a good movie with great performances by Ed Harris as John McCain & Julianne Moore as Palin. Harris seemed very much at ease playing McCain & Moore transformed herself into Palin. Woody Harrelson also does a nice job playing McCain's campaign manager Steve Schmidt.

I did find some of it hard to believe & actually yelled out "give me a break!" a few times. Did Palin really need to get an explanation about WWII? Given the liberal skew of Hollywood, I had a hard time believing the accuracy of some of the less-publicly known events.

All-in-all it is a well-made, well-acted movie that kept me entertained…7.0/10 stars
