Frank, who has been told he should do talk radio, is a natural in front of a camera and microphone, and his ease comes across in Everly's film.

There's nothing new here, but Frank provides a genial reminder that politics doesn't always have to take the low road.

Disappointingly slapdash and spotty in its approach.

Sure, it's in essence a love letter to Barney Frank, but from the looks of things, he seems to deserve it.

Between skirmishes in the Capitol, we get a portrait of the congressman as an openly homosexual man, with Everly's agenda much more about Frank's sex life than his politics.

Frank is a worthy subject, but this treatment amounts to not much more than a somewhat extraneous sidebar to last month's The Hunting of the President.

Frustrating lack of context leaves you wanting a lot more in the way of texture.

Indiscriminately shot, set to insufferably caffeinated trip-hop, and edited with the superficial pep of a television magazine show, Let's Get Frank conveys its congressional star as a personality, but not quite a character.
