Actress Moore makes one actually feel sorry for Sarah Palin at points in this wonderful film.

The dramatic re-creations are somewhat uneven: The convention staging is quite convincing, the campaign trail less so.

Game Change, which explores how smart people make dumb decisions, is a movie for all of us.

It's a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at politics - as long as you're a Democrat.
August 3, 2012
But if viewers put politics aside, imagining everyone on screen as a character rather than a stand-in for a real-life figure, they will find Game Change offers enough Shakespearean machinations to warrant praise as an exceptional melodrama.
August 3, 2012
This is a sharp-edged but not unsympathetic portrait of a flawed heroine.
August 3, 2012
A compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant dramatization of the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Republican side of the 2008 presidential campaign that is unlikely to sway already entrenched opinions on both sides.

A searing, sizzlingly well acted docudrama.

Seeing Game Change is like living again through the campaign of 2008.
