I thought the first half was funny, but somewhere it lost any energy. I'll disagree with Walter about the wife seduction scene, as I think it might be at the place where the movie completely derails. Infidelity never seems like a good source for comedy. You could tell that scene killed the mood of the audience I saw it with. It would have been nice to see a bit more of Zach's innocent character countering the ruthlessness of his opponent and the political process. Instead, Zach almost-immediately becomes an ass, and the 2 leads are just insulting each other but not in very interesting ways. The film is funny half the time and feels really neutered. Like a film version of a Cliff Notes on US Politics.
