Washington Post - Desson Thomson
The satire of the season, a hilarious, razor-sharp indictment of the American Dream.
Boston Globe - Jay Carr
An invigoratingly mordant comedy that proves that Alexander Payne's rambunctious debut, "Citizen Ruth," was no fluke.
Slate - David Edelstein
American satire rarely comes more winning than Election, an exuberantly caustic comedy that shows the symbiotic relationship between political go-get-'em-ism and moral backsliding.
USA Today - Susan Wloszczyna
When it comes to eloquently telling it like it is, Election puts the nation's political pundits to shame.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Election has the sharpest satire of any teen movie made in years. Like the best lampoons, it attacks by exaggerating reality ever-so-slightly and targeting a broad range of subjects.
