Irresistible (2020)



Critic Consensus: A soft political satire that proves frustratingly less than the sum of its talented parts, Irresistible is anything but.

Movie Info

Written and directed by Jon Stewart, Irresistible is a comedy about what happens when a small Wisconsin town becomes the main attraction of our political circus. After the Democrat's top strategist Gary (Steve Carell) sees a video of a retired Marine Colonel (Chris Cooper) standing up for the rights of his town's undocumented workers, Gary believes he has found the key to winning back the Heartland. However, when the Republicans counter him by sending in his brilliant nemesis Faith (Rose Byrne), what started out as a local race quickly becomes an out-of-control and hilarious fight for the soul of America.

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.

"Irresistible" is a shell game that wants to entertain us until it's time to make us think, but it doesn't say anything we don't already know...

Not good.

"Irresistible," which can't decide if it's a satire, a farce or an old-fashioned come-from-behind underdog story, just isn't it. Resist.

As things close, we realize we never once really learned, well, what people believe and want in this town - besides simply loving it.

It's a big old nothingburger of a movie: Wag the Dog with a muzzle on.
