In 1996, a Time Magazine writer named Joe Klein penned a novel based off events surrounding the 1992 Democratic national primary and it's eventual presidential nominee. In 1998, director Mike Nichols, re-teaming with longtime collaborator Elaine May, adapted the novel into a feature film, Primary Colors. The film garnered great attention due to the content and the critics raved over the performances from John Travolta and Kathy Bates, but has since become little-discussed. Does the film go down as one of the most underrated political comedies of all time or is it just blowing smoke (or perhaps something else)? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster follow the campaign to find out.
