Critic Reviews for The Big Buy: Tom Delay's Stolen Congress

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • Gains immeasurably from the extended presence of Travis County D.A. Ronnie Earle.

    June 29, 2006
  • The slipshod documentary The Big Buy plays Whac-a-Mole with Tom DeLay, the former House majority leader who recently stepped down in the wake of the Jack Abramoff scandal.

    May 26, 2006 | Rating: .5/4
  • Styled as a film noir -- possibly because the shoestring budget precluded adequate lighting -- the movie guides us through the events leading up to Mr. DeLay's indictment for illegal use of campaign contributions in the 2002 Texas Legislature elections.

    May 25, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • The scrappy small-budget pic remains persuasive throughout, and occasionally offers 'Gotcha!' moments that are laugh-out-loud funny.

  • Unapologetic partisanship underscores the central question and problem of The Big Buy: For whom and what is it intended?

  • The guy must own a chutzpah mine.
