Believing his career is over, Senator Jay Bulworth (Warren Beatty) takes out an enormous insurance policy - and a contract on his own life. But his impending death fills him with an outrageous desire to break the rules and tell it like it is. With new enthusiasm to live, fueled in part by a beautiful woman named Nina (Halle Berry), Bulworth must now somehow stop the "hit" he has put out on himself before its too late.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Bulworth works, with both urbanity and chutzpah, by viewing political puppeteering with an all-purpose jaundiced eye.
Fresh: What gives Bulworth its unique character is that all this silliness is periodically punctuated by cogent, carefully thought-out mini-manifestos...
Fresh: As writer, director and star, Beatty flails all over the screen, but he's also made the only recent political satire that draws blood.
You have to be a spirit - not a ghost!
In real life it's usually an ugly thing to see someone loose all inhibition and say what they really think. Not so in the movies! I give Bulworth 5 stars for speaking its mind even if some speeches are mindless. If you're watching this for the first time don't be turned away by its age, I guarantee you'll be provoked into laughter that will spurt your drink out your nose. Enjoy!
Provocative, funny, and brave.
This movie was great! Very good acting and drama!
