The Ides of March

The Ides of March ★½

Yawn. Not even two hot guys (i.e., George Clooney and Ryan Gosling) could make The Ides of March interesting to me. The story is blah with predictable plot twists.

Are we supposed to sympathize with any of the characters? I sure didn't. They're all so cliche: the cheating politician, the naive intern, the backstabbing political staff, the wronged man who seeks his revenge. You know what's going to happen to them before it happens.

Blah.
