Movie Info

NBC News producer Alexandra Pelosi, assigned to cover George W. Bush's run for the Presidency in 2000, carried a small video camera with which she recorded events along the way. Bush is well aware of Pelosi's project, frequently mugging for the camera, sometimes turning it on her, teasing her about her relationship with another reporter. Despite early setbacks in New Hampshire and Michigan, Bush is able to overtake his chief rival, Senator John McCain (R, AZ), who eventually drops out of the race and throws his support to Bush. Pelosi also records the thoughts of several colleagues, including reporters from The Financial Times of London, Newsweek, and two journalists from The Houston Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News who have already covered Bush as governor of Texas. Pelosi occasionally talks about her own ambivalent attitude toward politics (her mother, Nancy Pelosi, is a Democratic congresswoman from California), the media circus that accompanies any campaign in the television era, and life as a single woman in her late twenties with no romantic prospects.more

Critic Reviews for Journeys With George

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

An amusing, breezily apolitical documentary about life on the campaign trail.

New York Times
Top Critic

The movie is virtually without context -- journalistic or historical. What's worse is that Pelosi knows it.

Village Voice
Top Critic

It's a hoot and a half, and a great way for the American people to see what a candidate is like when he's not giving the same 15-cent stump speech.

New York Post
Top Critic

Pelosi's willingness to open up and look into her own spot in the campaign frenzy makes this meta-documentary important the media and those who consume it.

A must see for all sides of the political spectrum

A depressing confirmation of everything those of us who don't object to the description "unelected" have suspected all along: George W. Bush is an incurious, uncharismatic, overgrown frat boy with a mean streak a mile wide.
