About the Movie

Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) is Tracy Flick, a straight "A" go-getter who's determined to be president of Carver High's student body. But when popular teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick, The Producers) observes the zealous political locomotive that is Tracy, he decides to derail her obsessive overachieving by recruiting an opposition candidate (Chris Klein, American Pie) - with disastrous results! Here's a smart, witty and hilarious jab at high school politics helmed by award-winning director Alexander Payne (Sideways).

Funny Movie!

This movie is so funny! Reese and Matt are great in it! Only stupid parts are with Tracy Flicks competitors sister....who is well weird. Other wise it's a cool movie, that has a storyline that I can see happening in real life. Lol, Tracy Flick is nuts I tell you!


I really want this movie to have the option of RENTING! Pretty please Itunes...


This movie is just plain hilarious and shows how Reese Witherspoon can play ANY type of character. WOW. Great Movie.
