A high school student body election turns out to be very eventful, apart from being extremely hilarious. Tracy Flick (Witherspoon) has regularly come first in class, been a part of almost all student body departments, is extremely clever and, has a lot ego about herself. Her intelligence is her pride and she considers herself to be perfect in everything. After spending years in establishing a reputation for herself in school she finally decides to run for student body president, a post she is vying to take up for years. The school history teach, Mr. Jim McAllister (Broderick) is like the teacher counterpart of Tracy who too has won numerous 'Teacher of the Year' awards and is respected a lot by the school management. Jim holds a grudge against Tracy, from past events and due to Tracy's smug look and 'know-it-all' attitude. In order to give Tracy some competition, he decides to convince the school's football captain who is now injured and cannot plat. He hopes that is his popularity would work in his favour to topple Tracy from winning the title. The movie is a fun watch with a lot going for almost everybody. Its not hilariously funny but its still good enough to watch and enjoy. Reese Witherspoon has put on a good show for her part and fits the role that she was supposed to fulfill. A good and enjoyable one-timer.

Thumbs up: Reese Witherspoon
Thumbs down: Not all that funny

Rating: 6.4/10
