Knife Fight DVD Review

This indie movie about U.S. politics may have relied on B-list celebrities, but most bring their A game in this surprisingly solid light drama. Rob Lowe is great as Paul Turner a Democratic fixer, the guy you call when your politician is about to get caught screwing around or… well let’s just go with screwing around, because that seems to be the go-to vice for male politicians in Knife Fight

Eric McCormack’s plays sleazy well, as one of his clients, a sympathetic Kentucky governor with a thing for his 20-something intern (of course). The film is littered with celebrity cameos, some good (Alan Dershowitz as an opportunist attorney) and some awful (a very stiff Howard Kurtz playing a political blogger).
