Movie Info

Tom Selleck stretches his dramatic range by playing a liberal Democrat in this comedy-drama satirizing the underside of party politics. Governor James Pryce (Tom Selleck) is a well-respected politician with a strong reformist streak who is a shoo-in for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, thanks to a well-run primary campaign organized by his manager Lauren Hartman (Laura Linney), and the savvy speechmaking and moral support of his wife Jenny (Nancy Travis). Now Pryce has to pick a

...comes off looking like a recruitment advertisement for idealism.

[T]his comedy/drama falls a little flat as either...

It isn't a dull movie, just a hollow one that ends up selling its message short.

Audience Reviews for Running Mates

There should be a word in the English language for attempted and failed comedy. This movie certainly fits the bill. It is just plain not funny. Which is fine, but the events are never engaging and the characters are all really flat, so it doesn't work as a drama, either. It's not a romance, it's not a very good satire, it's certainly sci-fi; It's a whole lot of nothing, is what it is. It's so strange how specifically Laura Linney is typecast: the super-serious, hyper-competent political analyst/ campaign manager/ crown attorney. I think this movie was trying to poke fun at Gloria Steinem and Ralph Nader without hurting their feelings which doesn't really make sense.

Good comedy-drama of the political and candidate with Tom Selleck and his female co-stars.

This movie was on tv and I sat down to watch it only because I saw theser great actors starring in this movie. Basically this movie is about this governor who is campaigning to become The President of the United States. This movie was ok good, nothing special in particular. One thing which bothered me a bit was Tom Selleck not wearing a mustache, he looks so much better with the mustache on but on the other hand it wouldn't be suitable to have a mustache wearing president.
