Payne's adaptation of Tom Perrotta's novel, a comic satire on the 1992 American presidential election campaign set in a high school, focuses on the conflict between Jim McAllister (Broderick), a dedicated teacher who's also suffering from a mid-life crisis, and Tracy Flick (Witherspoon), a model but precocious pupil, over a student government election. Winning performances and a super sharp script.
