Movie Info

Massachusetts congressman Barney Frank achieved an uncomfortable sort of public recognition in 1990 when, three years after he came out of the closet as a gay man, he was involved in a scandal involving his use of the services of a male prostitute. Frank weathered the storm of controversy and was reelected to office, and in 1998, when President Bill Clinton was facing impeachment in the wake of a sex scandal of his own, Frank became one of the president's most outspoken champions in Washington, D.C. Let's Get Frank is a documentary on the outspoken representative, which focuses primarily on his defense of Clinton and his perspective on the so-called "culture wars" between liberal and conservative political factions. Let's Get Frank was the first feature film from director Bart Everly.

Audience Reviews for Let's Get Frank

  • Aug 04, 2010
    The otherwise undistinguished documentary "Let's Get Frank" starts with Congeressman Barney Frank(D-Ma.) hugging Ellen DeGeneres. The film lacks any true insight into his legislative record and is only deep as watching C-Span. And you do not need that many cameras to film an interview. Instead, the focus is on his defense of President Clinton, who signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law in 1996, during the impeachment hearings which were a colossal waste of time and money since the Republicans were never going to have the votes to convict in the Senate, as morality or harmless stupidity should never be legislated. In fact, the openly gay Frank had his own sexual scandal where he was outed and reprimanded for, about a decade before the impeachment. Basically, what the documentary is concerned with on a partisan basis is attacking the hypocrisy(while not giving credit to Larry Flynt for instigating some of the unveiling of hypocrites. Give the pornographer his due.) and homophobia of Republicans, linking back to the anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950's. I would go back even further to when people were literally on trial for being witches(a connection Michael Moore made in one of his television series). Any country that is founded by religious fanatics is bound to have its share of issues and be generally uptight. Or in other words, no sex please. We're American.
