Critic Reviews for Irresistible
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.
I don't think it works well as a drama or a comedy. It's not especially funny... There's a good message here, but it's buried under a lot of stuff that doesn't work.
Jon Stewart can't actually be bothered to show us any diversity throughout Irresistible, and it's a failing of the film that shows his own ideological narrowness.
Irresistible is hugely diverting and sporadically profound. At the very end, though, it takes the path of least resistance and - dagnammit! - lets everyone off the hook.
