About the Movie
A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged, but still brilliant strategist "Calamity" Jane Bodine (Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), now coaching the opposition. But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability-both on and off the campaign trail-Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, Our Brand is Crisis reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: You want to know how the Janes of the world happen. Is it money? Power? Ideology? You never find out.
Rotten: The movie unfortunately gets stuck between edgy drama and broad comedy, and most of the humor lands with a thud, unless animals getting run over or an A-list actress mooning bus passengers get your vote.
Rotten: Ultimately, "Our Brand Is Crisis" isn't as hard-hitting, trenchant or angry as it should be.
Rotten: It's a case study, if nothing else, of starting with a dubious idea and making it downright awful.
I enjoyed it!
It was nice seeing Sandra Bullock do a dark political comedy. Acting was top notch and I enjoyed the story line. It's disappointing to see it wasn't a success at the box office, but maybe in time it can be a fluke and do well on digital format sales. Overall I'd love to see a nomination for the entire cast at the upcoming award shows, but it's unlikely due to the politics of cinema. Sandra if you are reading this don't frown because you did right by making this movie. Once again we see what an amazing talented and versatile woman you are in the art of film.
