Beatty's heart is in the right place in this satire of modern politics and biting criticism of big money influence in Washington and Hollywood. He plays a US Senator so disillusioned with the system he organises his own assassination.

Stepping into LA club land, he has a change of heart as he sees things the way they are for impoverished blacks and goes on a new drive to enlighten the voters, dressing like a homie and rapping on TV.

The pace is a little slow, Berry has almost no depth, Platt as always is the epitome of funny and the film does make an impact with what it has to say. Despite Bulworth's attempts to cancel his own murder owing to his new lease of political life, his killing at the end is almost incidental, with little to do with the story.
