Based on a story by Warren Beatty

Beatty plays Sen. Jay Bulworth, a down-and-out politician who revives his career with an unheard of strategy: speaking the truth. His no-bull approach leads to several amusing foot-in-mouth scenarios, but after hanging in the 'hood with homeboys he wins over new constituencies and a new flame (Berry). Beatty's satire on American politics is a refreshing, first-rate film.
