An enjoyable, fitfully engaging but ever-so-slightly forgettable minor-key political comedy.

Grassroots is a movie where bad ideas, because they're the ones championed by the "correct" side, are king. It never acknowledges that sometimes idealism is just another kind of manipulation.

At first glance, "Grassroots" doesn't seem like much of an idea for a movie. Nor at second, third or fourth glance.

Although it only glosses the mechanics of local politics, it exudes an endearingly scruffy charm.

This is one film as misguided as the business-as-usual subject it aims to critique.

Grassroots disingenuously has it both ways, reducing politics first to a David-versus-Goliath adventure, and then to an everyone-is-cool bowl of mush.

Poli-sci students may roll their eyes at true story of an upstart campaign for Seattle City Council.
