[5.25/10] Irresistible (2020)

Irresistible (2020)

Quick Review: Woefully everything but irresistible, this one plays as a mild satire on politics by depicting a small Wisconsin town mayor election campaign as a rivalry between two cynical strategists, showing the ugly side of it all, and though Carell and Byrne live up to their roles, with the latter being the standout, bringing some wit and raunchiness in a dirty game they play, "Irresistible" is far from clever or genuinely funny, well, at least not until the well-conceived twist towards the ending.
