Irresistible (Jon Stewart's film)

Has anyone else seen this? It seems to be getting mediocre reviews but I thought it was quite good.

It's got Carell working as a sort-of more corporate American version of Malcolm Tucker I suppose. The film's satirising spin and strategists, a bit like Wag the Dog, but nowhere as dark or good really. But it's also got a city guy in the sticks thing going on a bit like Local Hero set in rural America.

I guess it's merging two great films and coming out as good? It was fun anyway and a lot of the main characters Steve Carell, Chris Cooper and Mackenzie Davis are all likeable.

I made a thread in the Comedy subforum, didn't seem to get many responses. I thought it wasn't as bad as everyone was saying but it wasn't amazing either. But it had some interesting points.
