David Mamet, that president emeritus of hard-consonant profanity, often seems as comfortable with softer stuff as a man wearing wool in July. But this on-the-nose Hollywood satire played like Preston Sturges absolved of Production-Code limitations.

[State and Main] has been heralded as the second coming of Preston Sturges. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall any of that comedic master's films ever revolving around a statutory rape charge.

In the end, State and Main is little more than a pleasant diversion, but it is one that is accomplished with a degree of wit and grace and a healthy respect for its putative audience.

Those who read the tabloids regularly will enjoy speculating about which real-life personalities Mamet may have provided the inspiration for these daffy characters.
