The film fails as a portrait of a man. But as an insider's look at a Senate campaign, it holds interest.

It's quite a revealing, amusing and ultimately dispiriting trip

Personalities are being sold, not parties or philosophies, and A Perfect Candidate makes that process even more interesting because one candidate, Robb, apparently has no personality at all, while the other, North, has two.

The film dwells a bit too much on North's unpleasant campaign strategist, Mark Goodin.

An encouraging item from the film is the claim that, of those who considered honesty and ethics important considerations in choosing a senator, three-fourths voted against North.
