Beatty is to be congratulated on even attempting to prick America's conscience in these conservative times, but the real reason for seeing it is the panache with which it captures the irresistible flash and filigree of American politics.

This charming, Capraesque political fable demonstrates the viability of Warren Beatty as writer, director and star; it's his last decent film.

Smug but fun political satire for adults only.
April 2, 2009
Manages to courageously and seriously address political issues head-on while remaining a funny and entertaining romp.
August 11, 2007
A liberal call to action -- a satire driven by equal parts disgust and hope.
June 24, 2006
It's a sharp, brave movie, a little ragged around the edges, but that's to its advantage.
May 26, 2006
Beatty is a very shielded actor, but he shrewdly finds ways to work within his limitations, and Bulworth is a tour-de-force for him.
December 6, 2005
While the ending is predictable and unsatisfying, the political issues that the film raises (racism, et. al) are worthy of further discussion.
August 30, 2005
one of the hardest-hitting and unblinkingly brave political satires to hit American screens since "Dr. Strangelove."
July 29, 2004
An effective satire that deserves recommendation.
July 30, 2003
Beatty's contribution to the ranks of recent political satire is bold, merciless and frequently very funny, and his performance is just plain fearless.
July 2, 2003
sometimes ambitious failures are more interesting to watch than modest successes, and, though "Bulworth" may offend... it's unlikely to bore anyone.
May 22, 2003
Warren Beatty is wonderfully wacky here.
February 8, 2003
The plot is clever. The acting is genuine.

Bulworth is Warren Beatty's most passionate work since Reds -- provocative, vulgar, heartfelt and pretty darn funny.
July 31, 2002
... Bulworth is the product of an interesting engaged intelligence operating at or near peak capacity
March 24, 2002
Warren Beatty's brave, if ramshackle, political farce tackles the dirty business of racial inequality and corporate greed with the tenacity of a pit bull.
March 3, 2002
An over-the-top black comedy about two of the most egregious problems in politics- racism and campaign financing.
