About the Movie

Cast your ballot for big laughs when Gene Hackman and Ray Romano find themselves in a hilariously heated race for mayor of Mooseport, Maine. A local plumber (Romano) is plunged into the national spotlight when he takes on the former President of the United States (Hackman), who can't believe he's running against the man installing his toilets! To make matters worse, the ex-prez is trying to steal the election -- and the affection of the handyman's girlfriend (Maura Tierney). Whoever wins, one thing's for sure: this town isn't small enough for the both of them!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Devoid of wit and point. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: Pretty skimpy on fun. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Means to satirize the TV-fueled carnivalesque nature of American electoral politics but only demonstrates the TV-fueled debasement of American commercial comedy. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Petrie made Grumpy Old Men, which appealed to the same older audience Welcome to Mooseport apparently is going after ... Both films suffer from a flatness and uneven pacing that make them slow going. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 9, 2004
