Irresistible Reviews

Sep 1, 2022
The entire purpose of Jon Stewart’s Irresistible seems to be an exercise on how both sides can p*ss into the wind without getting their pants wet.

Irresistible is a clever and consistently comical commentary on the disconnect between today’s political parties and the people they swear to serve, strengthend by Jon Stewart's witty writing.

Stewart draws in an army of bigger-name pals in small parts, each with their own set of great lines. Debra Messing is hilariously obnoxious in an early scene.

It starts off all fresh and funny, until it consumes itself in pursuit of showing up the star-spangled blues and reds of America.

All of these performances though are in service of a film that feels badly out of date, even to the choir it's preaching to who will go out of their way to see it.

The biggest error of Irresistible is that its more concerned with making a point than telling a good story.

A really endearing drama that still delivers plenty of laughs.

Tremendously out of step with the current moment.

"Irresistible" is the insightful, laugh-out-loud comedy we needed during this election year. Putting into perspective what is truly important in any leadership role.

Though at times the narrative opposition is uneven, and the tension sometimes feels forced, the intent is solid.

Irresistible is far too happy to coast on stereotypes of supposed Democratic and Republican party supporter traits, and for far too long.

The problem is Irresistible can be a clunky political critique, one that struggles to maintain its momentum and to establish a consistent tone. It's fast, it's slow. It's sarcastic; it's earnest.

...something of a time-waster, with an absurd 'money-solves-everything' motif...

This zingy satire is so perfectly, beautifully Jon Stewart: big and brash, raging with fury at the state of American politics but also underlain with hope that it might be changed for the better.

Irresistible is an entertaining film in fits and starts, but Stewart doesn't find his storytelling groove until the very end. By that point, many viewers may have already given up.

Doesn't exactly blaze new ideological ground but the as a reminder of why the political system is twisted and broken, it's a timely tale.

Missing Jon Stewart's commentary won't save this film for you.

The intent is timely and noble and there is a third-act twist that makes it almost worthwhile.

Irresistible represents a missed opportunity to show the world something new when it comes to dirty politics.

It's plain all along that Stewart has little interest in his characters and their troubles except as a means for him to score didactic points, primarily about the evils of unrestricted campaign financing.
Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
