Another one from Alexander Payne that I was missing and I think he can't do no wrong!

I really enjoyed this film about high school but this is not just the average high school film that we are used to. It's very well written, it's funny and has a lot of great characters in it.
Mr. McAllister is just the lovable teacher that every single student loves, he likes to do everything for the well of his students but when it comes to a particular girl, Tracy Flick, that kind of super annoying and super smart girl who knows it all, he just can't help wishing to see her have a little let down in life. When she decided to run for president for the school's student council election that's when things started to went wrong for everyone.

I would never vote for Tracy Flick for president! She is just the most stupid and annoying girl in the world and that's what makes Reese Witherspoon's performance so great! You literally want to slap Tracy in the face! Reese Witherspoon was perfectly picked for the role. Matthew Broderick's performance was also very good and I guess Chris Klein is always good and funny in those kind of roles of the high school sweetheart with less intelligence.

An high school election has never been so unethical and immoral!
