  • A surprisingly entertaining political comedy that features a funny and magnetic Beatty as the discouraged politician Bulworth, who has organized his own assassination but, after a three day bender of not sleeping, decides that he wants to live after all. He begins to tell the complete truth at all times, not caring about the potential repercussions of his offensive, yet honest, remarks. Oh yes, of course, and he starts rapping. It's a credit to Beatty that his change of heart seems so believable, and it is this performance that drives the film. All of the supporting players are solid as well, including Berry as a potential love interest who may have ulterior motives, and Platt, who is hysterical as a stressed-out, coked-up campaign aide. The film is an entertaining, well-paced romp that solidifies Beatty's presence as one of Hollywood's most vital and necessary voices.
